MotoGP announces latest rule changes

Front race numbers on Moto3 and Moto2 machines must have a separation of minimum 10mm between double digit numbers. Reflective backgrounds are not permitted.

Effective 2014:
To ensure that teams in the Moto3 are supplied with engines of the same specification at a reasonable price it has been agreed that engines will be supplied via the series organisers and distributed randomly.

Engines will not be returned for maintenance but having completed normal mileage will be retained by teams for other purposes or sale on.

Discussions are continuing about the maximum number of engines allowed and the routine, minor engine maintenance to be permitted and a final regulation will be announced during the 2013 Qatar GP.

Maximum prices will be imposed for complete Moto3 class machines and maximum prices will be specified for chassis and major components for Moto3 and Moto2 class machines. Again, final regulations will be announced during the 2013 Qatar GP.

All Classes
Effective 2014:
In 2013 Dorna will introduce a new timekeeping transponder that will have the ability to display on the dashboard additional information for the rider. Most importantly, this will include the ability to duplicate flag signals. Use of a compatible dashboard is mandatory from 2014 and optional in 2013.

In the Moto2 class the use of an updated Lambda sensor will be compulsory

Effective 2015:
FIM homologation standards for all racing wheels were approved in principle. Final standards will be announced at the Qatar GP

Other Matters
The Commission confirmed acceptance of all MotoGP class CRT entries on the provisional 2013 entry list.

The Commission approved various MotoGP wild card entries:
Michel Pirro - Ducati - Jerez, Mugello and Misano
Martin Bauer - Schwarz & Bronnen – Brno
