Aturan di motogp tiap tahun makin aneh-aneh aja. Setelah tahun lalu memasukkan motor produksi masal ke balapan dengan label CRT, tahun 2013 akan ada aturan baru yaitu hukuman penalti buat rider yang dianggap agresiv. Pemberian penalty ini dengan memberikan poin kepada rider yang dianggap agresiv oleh juri. Hukuman mengumpulkan 4 poin harus start paling belakang, 7 poin start dari pitlane, 10 poin tidak bisa balapan di 1 race selanjutnya.
Aturan ini berpotensi mengurangi greget balapan motogp. Bisa dibayangkan motogp tanpa overtaking beresiko seperti yang biasa dilakukan marc marquez. Dan yang paling saya kawatirkan adalah kemungkinan aturan ini disalahgunakan. Karena penilaian juri sifatnya subyektif sekali, maka bisa menguntungkan salahsatu pihak serta merugikan pihak lainnya. Selain aturan itu ada beberapa aturan lain yang efektif di tahun 2014-2015.

Sporting and Disciplinary
It has been recognised that there is the need to address the problem of riders who are constantly being warned or penalised for endangering other riders or committing other serious offences like assaulting marshals or other officials. To address this issue a new system of Penalty Points was approved. Race Direction can sanction a rider with a number of
Penalty Points between one and ten. This can be instead of or in addition to any other sanction. Points will “tot up” during the season and when certain thresholds are reached the following sanctions will be applied automatically:
– Four Points – Starts next race from rear of grid.
– Seven Points – Starts next race from pit lane.
– Ten Points – Disqualification from the next
Once the ten point sanction has been imposed then points reset to Zero. Points are not carried forward to the following season. Several changes to the start procedure were approved:
– Pit lane opening will be accompanied by a green flag at the pit exit in addition to the existing green light.
– No red flag will be displayed in front of the grid at the conclusion of the sighting lap.
– Tyre warmers must be removed immediately on display of the one minute board.
Following approval of the new qualifying procedure for the MotoGP class it is also necessary to determine the criteria for actual
qualification to take part in the race – the 107% rule. To be allowed to take part in the actual qualifying sessions a rider must achieve a time better than 107% of the fastest rider in any of the four free practice sessions. It is no longer possible to qualify for the race based on a time set in the warm up. Riders who are appointed as substitutes for an injured rider
after some free practice sessions have taken place and have not achieved the 107% cut off will still be allowed to participate in Qualifying Practice 1 where they must achieve a qualifying time.
Failure of riders participating in their first event of the season to attend the FIM briefing may attract a penalty but will no longer result
in automatic disqualification.
The responsibility for switching on red rear lights in rain conditions now rests with the teams. No boards will be displayed.
It is no longer a requirement for the team to be notified and acknowledge the imposition of a ride through penalty due to a jump
start. The requirement will be displayed at the start line to the rider and included on the
information page of the timekeeping monitors.
There is no longer a minimum fine that can be imposed by Race Direction. The maximum fine is now fixed at €50,000.00
Carbon Composite wheels are not
permitted. (As is already the case
for Moto3 and Moto2).
The exception granted to CRT
entries in 2012 to permit use of
brake disks of a different diameter
than the 320mm specified in the
regulations will not be extended to
A revised allocation of tyres will be
introduced. In principle, riders will
receive an additional rear tyre and
the “soft” front tyre offered as an
option in 2012, but not used, will
no longer be available. In that case,
the exception concerning
allocations of different grades of
front tyres at certain specified
circuits will be cancelled. The
decision on the precise make up of
the allocation will be taken
following the official test at Sepang
on 5-7 February.
In this context, the official supplier
will be making available a “softer”
rear tyre for use by CRT entries.
A procedure for homologation of
the “frozen” engine specifications
was approved. It was confirmed
that this regulation does not apply
to CRT entries and that different
teams using the same brand of
MSMA machine could have engines
homologated with different
Maximum prices permitted to be
charged for the supply of brakes
and suspension will be imposed.
Investigations are also being
carried out with a view to capping
charges for “service contracts” for
the same products.

The allocation of tyres for the
Moto2 class is changed. In future
riders will have the following
maximum numbers available:
8 front tyres of the two standard
9 rear tyres of the two standard
The actual specifications will be
determined by the official supplier
and all riders will receive equal
Front race numbers on Moto3 and
Moto2 machines must have a

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
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.
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

racing wheels were approved in

The Commission approved various
