Race Direction reminder: change of position penalties!

Teams have been reminded on an update to regulations made in September

On Sunday morning before racing gets underway in the PTT Thailand Grand Prix, Race Direction sent a reminder to teams about change of position penalties. It recaps an update to Article 1.21.3 of the FIM Grand Prix regulations made in September, with riders now given a maximum of three laps to comply with a change of position penalty. Previously, the time slot allowed was five laps – but it’s now gone down to three.

If a rider fails to comply within three laps, they’ll be given a ride through.
