Crash.Net: ‘Benefits’ for some manufacturers in MotoGP™ 2016

The Open class will disappear but some MotoGP manufacturers will still receive technical concessions when a control ECU becomes mandatory in 2016.  The present Open machines are given fuel, tyre, engine and testing concessions in return for using the standard ECU software.  These benefits are also given to Factory Option entries that didn't win a dry race during 2013 or are new to MotoGP - meaning Ducati, Suzuki and Aprilia this season, but not Honda and Yamaha. And that concept is set to continue.  “One issue to be decided is the package of benefits for manufacturers that didn't have good results,” Corrado Cecchinelli, MotoGP's Director of Technology, told Crash.net at this week's Sepang MotoGP test.
