MotoGP regulations revised for 2010

FIM announces a handful of revisions to testing regulations and the medical code ahead of the 2010 MotoGP World Championship season
Further to the decision to increase the maximum engine capacity to 1000cc for the 2012 season, the Grand Prix Commission has revealed further revisions to MotoGP regulations intended to come into effect for this season.

Revisions to testing regulations and the medical code are as follows:

Testing

In the MotoGP class, practice by contracted riders with machines eligible for the MotoGP class is forbidden during the season and the breaks at any circuit included in the Grand Prix calendar of the current year with the following exceptions:

- Practice included in the schedule of the events;
- Practice during the day immediately following the Spanish Grand Prix (Jerez) and the Czech GP (Brno) and during the two days immediately following the last GP (Valencia);

Practice by contracted riders with machines eligible for the MotoGP class is also forbidden during the winter at any circuit with the following exceptions:

At a maximum of six days of official tests organised by Dorna/IRTA at Grand Prix circuits included in the calendars of the preceding or following year. No testing is permitted during the period starting on December 1 of one year and finishing on January 31 of the following year, both dates being inclusive with the exception of the 'Rookie' riders who are allowed one three-day test during November/December.

The Winter test schedule must be approved by the Grand Prix Commission. This decision was taken during the Grand Prix commission on November 7 in Valencia.

In 125cc and Moto2, wildcard riders are exempt from practice restrictions which apply to contracted riders in these categories. Until this decision, wildcard riders had been unable to practice or race at any Grand Prix circuit in the 14 days before the race.

Medical Code:

The Grand Prix Commission also agreed on modifications to the Medical Code, with regards to the minimum medical requirements for events.

The medical service comprising of equipment, vehicles and personnel must be organised in such a way and in sufficient number to ensure that an injured rider can be provided with appropriate and all necessary emergency treatment, with the minimum of delay and to facilitate their rapid transfer to further medical treatment in an appropriately equipped medical centre or definitive medical care in a hospital with the necessary facilities to deal with their injuries or illness, should this be required.
