Wednesday, 17 February 2010
The members of the Grand Prix Commission met in Barcelona today (February 17) to further define the Technical Regulations which will be introduced for the 2012 season.

In a meeting held in Barcelona today, the members of the Grand Prix Commission, composed of Messrs. Carmelo Ezpeleta (Dorna Sports, Chairman), Claude Danis (FIM), Hervé Poncharal (IRTA) and Takanao Tsubouchi (MSMA), in the presence of Messrs Ignacio Verneda (FIM Sports Director), Javier Alonso (Dorna) and M. Paul Butler (Secretary of the meeting) further defined the new Technical Regulations that will come into effect for the 2012 MotoGP season.

It was confirmed last December that the maximum engine capacity would increase to 1000cc for the start of the 2012 season with a maximum number of four cylinders and a maximum bore width of 81mm, and on Wednesday the GP Commission announced further specifications.

These will include a minimum weight of 153kg for bikes over 800cc and 150kg for machines up to 800cc, a maximum number of six engines available for use by each rider, and a fuel tank capacity of 21 litres.

There was also an announcement about the exception for private teams, who will have different limitations. These will be that each rider will be able to use 12 engines per season, and with a fuel tank capacity of 24 litres. This new regulations will be further defined by the end of May, with these teams to be referred to as Claiming Rule Teams (CRT).

In addition to these specifications, the Commission unanimously decided to introduce amendments with regards to tyre pressure for 2010. For the forthcoming season tyre pressure sensors will not be allowed, with tyre temperature sensors already prohibited.

Also confirmed at the meeting were definitions regarding the procedure for Moto2 teams to “request a replacement engine on the grounds of substandard performance” during the 2010 season.

2.3.6

Engine Definition, Specification and Modification

8) i) Use of the complete engine is mandatory, and it may not be modified in any way except as specifically described in these regulations.

ii) The engine design and specification will be determined by the official Supplier in consultation with the Organizers. The engine design and specification may be changed at any time with the agreement of both the official Supplier and the series Organizer. New technologies (for example; materials, cylinder head and valve design, valve operating mechanisms, alternative fuels, etc.) are encouraged provided they meet the Series' principle of cost reduction and long- term cost control, and are agreed by the official Supplier and series Organizer.

iii) The official Supplier may change the specification of individual parts from time to time, as is normal to improve reliability and function.

iv) All engines supplied to teams must be equal in specification and the engine performance, as measured by the official Supplier under their standard dynamometer conditions, must be within the tolerance range agreed by the Organizer and the official Supplier.

v) A team may request a replacement engine on the grounds of substandard performance. Such request must be made in writing to the Technical Director accompanied by a deposit of €20,000 per engine paid to IRTA. If the Technical Director is satisfied that there is clear evidence of substandard performance a replacement engine may be issued with the approval of the Race Direction for the next race event. The original engine will be returned to the official Supplier at the end of the race event where the complaint is lodged to be tested under standard conditions by the official Supplier and the dynamometer report sent to the Technical Director. If the engine is deemed within specified performance parameters and fit for use, the same engine will be returned to the team for the following race and the team's deposit will be forfeited. If the engine is deemed to be outside of specified performance parameters and not fit for use, a replacement engine will be issued for the next race and the deposit will be returned to the team in full.

vi) The complete engine (‘engine' in these regulations) is defined as the supplied engine cases, covers and everything contained within, and including the following external parts supplied by the official Supplier:

a) Fuel system including airbox, air filter, fuel pump & regulator, throttle bodies, intake manifolds, air intake funnels, fuel injectors primary & secondary, fuel delivery lines and hoses. control unit).

That's just wank. Why would a satellite team get a better deal than the factories? Unless Pigeon & I are reading it wrong and the 12 engines / 24 litres is to attract additional "genuine" privateers al a FB Corse.

It's kind of unclear what a "Claiming Rule Team" is at the moment. autosport.com

There will also be no electronics abatement with the rules set like that, and IMO, the fuel limit and the reliability shite are two of the chief culprits currently poised to try to sign the death warrant of motogp in 2010, especially given the strong looking WSBK field.

These rules confirm (as if it hasn't been confirmed beyond all doubt already) that Dorna has no clue what they are doing or how to fix a problem and that the factories are pulling the puppets strings in the absence of any genuine leadership or vision.

The next 2 years will be great years as the factories start to become more even and the racing benefits as a result. Then 2012/13 we will all be whining about the demise of the 800's and the great racing they produced in comparison to the mismatch of poorly thought out rules and regs that creates spread out fields involving 3 races within one of a handful of comparable bikes in each sub race.

I think WSBK should not stand in Dizzy's way as he continues on his determined path to fuck MotoGP.

So 90% of the problem with MotoGP (fuel capacity), will remain unchanged for the next 5 years?

WSBK keeps getting better and better.

These are the current definitions from the rule book; Food for thought.

DEFINITIONS

The teams competing in MotoGP vary hugely in terms of their available budgets and their structure in terms of staff numbers, from the big name ‘factory’ teams, to the ‘satellite’ or ‘private’ teams participating in the three elite classes of the MotoGP World Championship.

As the name suggests, the factory teams are those most closely linked with the manufacturer they represent. Teams such as Repsol Honda and Fiat Yamaha are the MotoGP showcases for the ‘brand’ and the ‘technology’ of the respective manufacturers. Proving your worth in races to millions of motorcycle enthusiasts across the globe cannot be bad for sales.

Private teams, meanwhile, can also have close links with the manufacturers who provide their machinery, but their levels of collaboration with the factory differ from case to case – with some teams being completely separate from factories.

Some private teams lease their race bikes from the manufacturers and benefit from direct technical support and supply of parts from the factories dependent on their agreement. For the factories, feedback from these teams also plays a crucial role in their development of competitive racing machinery.

Many private teams throughout the three categories, meanwhile, are operated completely independently from the factories but again they lease their bikes from the manufacturers - LCR Honda MotoGP Team do this in the MotoGP class.

from mcn

Rules vary though for independent teams in MotoGP, now referred to as Claiming Rule Teams (CRT’s).

Further details on the system for CRT’s will work will be unveiled in May, but the likes of Tech 3 Yamaha and LCR Honda will be able to use 50 per cent more engines than a factory squad.

And it will be able to run a 24-litre fuel tank,
opening the door for the independent teams to design and develop their own bike, much like the existing Moto2 format.

Edit.50% more oops mcn 12 engines is 100% more than the original 6

man this is all so wrong i bet if you asked a nursery of kids about rules they would come up with a way better solution...

hmmm will satelite hondas start to kick the factory's ass? we all know how starved of fuel the honda is, that motor will be an animal with extra fuel LOL

will the sattelite ducati's be running the screamer config or same as factory?

maybe they should make a special rule for suzuki? that will help there bikes keep up with other factory machines... when the other bikes are saving fuel maybe the 3 extra litres can help them to keep up. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]
