Decision of the Grand Prix Commission

Decision of the Grand Prix Commission

The Grand Prix Commission, composed of Messrs. Carmelo Ezpeleta (Dorna Sports, CEO), Ignacio Verneda (FIM Executive Director, Sport), Herve Poncharal (IRTA) and Takanao Tsubouchi (MSMA) in the presence of Javier Alonso (Dorna Sports) and Mike Trimby (IRTA, Secretary of the Meeting), in a meeting held on 12th October 2013 in Sepang (Malaysia), made the following decisions.


Moto3™ Class – Effective 2014

- Engine manufacturers will be required to make available six gearboxes, comprised of two specifications, and to allow teams to decide at the first event

MotoGP™ Class – Effective 2014

- The temperature of fuel, which may not be less than 15 degree Celsius below the ambient temperature, will now be checked in a separate container prior to the fuel tank being filled. This is due to the shapes of some fuel tanks making it impossible for a probe to measure temperature in all sections of the fuel tank. The fuel tank must be empty prior to filling from the separate container.

- For practical and cost reasons, wildcard entries in the MotoGP™ class will be free to use any ECU and software.

- MotoGP™ class wildcard entries will be permitted to use a maximum of three engines at each event.


MotoGP™ Class Categories

It has already been announced that MotoGP™ class entries opting to use the Magneti Marelli ECU, but their own software, will be designated as competing under the “Factory” option. The ‘CRT’ designation which previously applied to the remaining entries is no longer relevant. In future, these entries will be referred to as ‘Open’.
