At the end of the 2012 season, the contract between Dorna and Geo Tecnology for the maintenance of the Honda CBR600RR engines of the Moto2 category of the MotoGP World Championship expires. The promoter has decided not to renew this agreement and from next season it will be the Spanish company Moto Engineering Foundation the one in charge of carrying out these maintenance tasks.
Moto Engineering Foundation (MEF) It is located in the Techno Park of Motorland Aragón and is in charge of developing the MotoStudent competition in which Universities from all over the world compete to develop the best competition motorcycle based on a 250 4-stroke and later facing each other. As we can see on its website, the Moto Engineering Foundation is a non-profit foundation that was created on January 21, 2008 in order to promote technological development in the motorcycle and 4-wheel vehicle sector, as well such as innovation, research, technical testing and training activities at all levels.
Among the companies that are involved in this Foundation we can see Dorna itself, the Aragonese Institute of Development, the MotorLand Aragón circuit, ANESDOR, the Spanish and Aragonese Motorcycling Federations, the University of Zaragoza, the CEZ or the Zaragoza Business Confederation and the General Council of Official Associations of Industrial Engineers.
For its part, Geo Tecnology will continue to maintain Moto3 engines.
