Dorna and the FIM issued a provisional entry list for Moto2 and Moto3 for 2014, with 20 teams and 33 riders in Moto2 and 17 teams and 32 riders in Moto3. Not too shabby for a globe still straining under the weight of a tepid economy.
Of course, nothing like the grid for the '68 Ulster Grand Prix's 350 GP as represented in various shades of gray in the above video. We stopped counting at 40-something as the bikes streamed past. Note that at least 20 riders tried but didn't qualify for the race.
