new rules catering to the support teams

The Grand Prix Commission, composed of Messrs. Carmelo Ezpeleta (Dorna, Chairman), Ignacio Verneda (FIM Executive Director, Sport), Herve Poncharal (IRTA) and Takanao Tsubouchi (MSMA) in the presence of Javier Alonso (Dorna), Mike Trimby (IRTA) and Paul Butler (Secretary of the meeting), in a meeting held on 14 December in Madrid, decided the following:

Sporting Regulations

A revised wording of the testing regulation was approved. This incorporated the various decisions made earlier in 2011 concerning this matter.

Additionally it was decided that contracted riders in the MotoGP class may also test machines using the allocation of 240 tyres available to each manufacturer's team. Previously such testing was restricted to test riders only. In the interest of fair competition it was also agreed that other MotoGP class riders could exclusively test their team machines with a limit of 120 tyres per rider.

It was agreed that riders who did not qualify for the race based on their time in the qualifying practice can qualify if they achieve a time at least equal to 107% of the fastest rider in the warm up. This is an addition to the previous regulation which only considered free practice sessions.

Under the regulation concerning MotoGP class riders starting the race from pit lane due to an engine durability sanction, it was agreed that in future they will start ten seconds after the green light is shown at the pit lane exit.

Riders in all classes may now use a starter engine on the grid. For all classes tyre warmers may now remain in place until the display of the one minute board. Generators must still be removed at the three minute board.

Technical Regulations

With effect from 2012, for all classes, it will be compulsory to display a red rear light in rain conditions.

The minimum weight limits for 1000cc machines in the MotoGP class will be increased from the current 153 kilos.
- Effective from 2012: 157 kilos
- Effective from 2013: 160 kilos

The permitted wheel sizes for the Moto3 class were confirmed as:
Front 2.50" x 17" only
Rear 3.50" x 17" only

Several detail changes to regulations, submitted by the Technical Director were all approved.

A list of MotoGP class entries for 2012 was considered by the Commission. The list contained nine entries plus one reserve entry using CRT machinery of various types. Participation of all CRT entries was approved by the Commission on the understanding that the granting of CRT Status was subject to review by the Grand Prix Commission at any time.

was gifted it more like,

when you have a bike with the greatest speed advantage seen in modern times,
absolutely the worst year in michelins history as a motogp tire supplier (stoner on stones)
and Yamaha had more engine failures that year than at any other time

youd better be winning it

#4. he'll get it.

i sure hope colin gets that front end of his new bike sorted... i love watching that crazy ride. haha

i'm just so pumped for this season. stoner will probably do it again. rossi looks like he's fairing well with a real chassis'ed bike. spies in on the cusp of greatness. i expect bautista to have a top 7 in points year. bradl will be fun to see if he's better than elias - granted, hopkins and hayes already were. haha

can't wait to wake up early on sundays to watch the live moto2 and motogp races!!!!! hopefully the action will be as fun to watch as WSS and BSB.

The times are pointing to a good season. I just started watching MotoGP last year and honestly aside from fights for 3rd it was fairly dull. But things appear to be changing in a good way.

Looks like it'll be the 2 Hondas (if Pedrosa does not get injured like every year) vs 2 Yamahas. I think Rossi will get 1 win toward the end of the season and that's it. Sighhh if only Simoncelli still rides.

WSS > moto2 > WSBK > motoGP

Not sure where the other series fit in there - haven't watched an entire season of BSB yet to make that call.

This is pretty accurate as far as last year was concerned.

would love to see Hopkins, Laverty and Sykes up there in rostrum positions but my favourite, Rea needs to produce this season,
I don't think Haslam or Melandri have the right tool in the BMW as good as they are...............
