Grand Prix Commission announce revised technical rules

Grand Prix Commission announce revised technical rules

The GPC met ahead of Qatar GP to discuss the use of winglets and quickshifters in the Moto2™ and Moto3™ classes.

The Grand Prix Commission, composed of  Messrs. Carmelo Ezpeleta (Dorna, Chairman), Ignacio Verneda (FIM CEO), Herve Poncharal (IRTA) and Takanao Tsubouchi (MSMA) in the presence of Vito Ipollito (President FIM), Javier Alonso (Dorna)  and Mike Trimby (IRTA, Secretary of the meeting), in a meeting held on 19th. March 2016 in Losail, made the following decisions:

Technical Regulations

Moto2™ Class Quickshifter – Effective 01 May 2016

To reduce the incidence of missed gears it will be mandatory to use one of two approved brands of quickshifter. (Not one brand as previously agreed). It will also be compulsory to fit and use a load cell with data being supplied to the technical control data export.

Aerodynamic Wings in Moto3™ and Moto2™ Classes

The use of aerodynamic wings in these classes will be banned. For the Moto2™ class the ban is effective immediately. For the Moto3™ class, where some aerodynamic wings are currently being used, the ban is effective from 2017.

The Technical Director will continue to permit the use of fairing designs used to deflect water displaced by the front wheel that do not have an aerodynamic purpose.

A regularly updated version of the FIM Grand Prix Regulations which contains the detailed text of the regulation changes may be viewed shortly on:
