The size of the MotoGP grid could be set to increase substantially for the 2012 season. The Governing body, FIM has said that 11 teams comprising 16 riders have been invited to take part in the next stage of selection to compete in MotoGP.

For the last four season the grid seasons have been made up to 17 bikes but new regulations have led to plenty interests especially from Moto2.

Existing teams have been guaranteed places for the next season and the remaining hopefuls must lodge a security deposit with the International Road Racing Teams Association (IRTA) by the Friday of the next grand prix weekend in Barcelona on 3 June.

At the Catalan Grand Prix, series-rights holders Dorna and IRTA will decide which teams will be offered a participation deal.
