Caterham will enter the MotoGP World Championship next season with a Moto2 effort for Johann Zarco and American Josh Herrin, but the new team already has its eyes on the premier class.

Team manager Kamarudin Meranun told French media the team hopes to learn the sport by racing in Moto2 and climb to MotoGP in 2016. Caterham will field Suter chassis for Zarco and Herrin in 2014.

Caterham also competes in Formula One and is considering an alliance with an existing manufacturer - its blueprint in F1 - among its options for promotion to the premier class.

"It's yet to be seen how we will participate in that league one day, if it will be with our team with a team or with a client who uses our bikes or if we try to build our own engine," Meranun said. "For now, we have found a very strong partner with Suter, as is the case in Formula One with Renault."

Don't be surprised if the relationship between Caterham and Colin Edwards II strengthens in 2014.
