FIM announces new technical rules for 2007

The Grand Prix Commission today announced various modifications to the Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix Regulations.

The announcement was made following a meeting attended by Messrs, Carmelo Ezpeleta (Dorna, Chairman), Claude Danis (FIM), Sito Pons (IRTA), Takanao Tsubouchi (MSMA), and Mr Paul Butler (Secretary of the meeting).

The new stipulations specify that a rider cannot stop in the pits when observing a ride-through penalty and also bans the use of two-way radio voice communication.

New regulations regarding the engine rules will not be enforced until 2007. They mainly address the reduction of the engine capacity in the MotoGP class, which will be reduced from 990cc to 800cc. The new rules will no longer allow 2-strokes engines in the MotoGP class. The FIM also announced that the tank fuel capacity will be set at 21 litres.
