Changes to Technical Regulations for 2016

Changes to Technical Regulations for 2016

The Grand Prix Commission met at the Valencia GP and agreed rule changes affecting all classes for 2016.

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 Javier Alonso (Dorna) and Mike Trimby (IRTA, Secretary of the meeting), in a meeting held on 7 November in Valencia, made the following decisions:

Technical Regulations Effective Season 2016

Moto3 Chassis

The list of performance parts will be increased to include radiators and/or heat exchangers and air boxes.

In the interest of safety, Manufacturers/Teams will only be allowed to remove material (Cutting, Skimming) from the bodywork and the seat. All other performance parts must remain as standard.

All other chassis parts, not listed as performance parts or as sensors, may be upgraded as required, either by the manufacturer or the team, without the need for homologation.

Regulation 2.6.4.i. which defines a list of setting parts is no longer relevant, and will be removed from the regulations.

Moto3 Sensors

In the interests of cost saving Manufacturers will be permitted to include in their price list sensors from multiple suppliers.

Moto3 Transmission

The maximum allowed ratios for the primary drive is increased from two to three.

Moto3 Wild Card Engines

To improve chances of participation at a reasonable cost, Wild Card riders mays use any engine previously homologated for 2014 or 2015.

“Wings” on Fairings – All Classes

In the interests of safety, on wings fitted as an integral part of the fairing all edges must have a minimum radius of 2.5 mm.

Tyre Supply – MotoGP Class

The Official Tyre Supplier will remain at all times the owner of all tyres provided to the Teams. The Teams are required to return all tyres to the Official Supplier at the end of each event or test.
