All About the Motocross Regulations
MOTOGP, or Motorcycle Motocross Games, is a racing category organized by the Federation of Cycle Sports Recognition and Advertising. This international organization is responsible for selecting official MOTOGP tracks and classes, as well as supporting international development of motorbikes for racing. Grand Prix motorcycle racing is currently the premier category of motorcycle road racing events presently held on various road tracks qualified by the Fédience Internationale de Motocrosse.
The current season started with the European Championship, which was won by Jo Joost van Sloten. The next race in the list is the MotoGP Womens Trophy, with the championship decided after ten rounds of motocross events. The season is concluded with the MotoGP Motocross Championship, which was won by Jackie Yuan. There is still another season to go until the end of the year. Each season has a different theme and it is up to the organizers to choose which they think will be the best for the grand Prix.
For the races in Europe, all participants have to comply with the electrical regulations. In addition, all participants have to use a high performance motorcycle engine and all fuel systems have to be approved by the Union Internationaln Motorbike Trust. Each motorcycle within the class is limited to a certain capacity fuel capacity, and no motorcycle can exceed that limit. The engines are manufactured for such high capacity and can perform even better when the fuel flows are high.
In addition to the fuel regulations, all participants have to complete a set of qualifying sessions before the race. In the United States, the same procedure is followed except that the track distance is not given any special designation, as there is no need for qualifying. The MOTOGP rules state that the bikes have to be built according to strict specifications, including the specification for every tyre type. Each type has to be checked with every possible condition in order to be qualified for the race.
The super stock bikes used in the super 500cc class are built for a different purpose. They are designed to go fast and to be on the leading edge of development. Super stock bikes do not have the speed or the flexibility of the higher Performance bikes, which is what makes them separate from each other. Super Stock bikes are also limited to fewer horses and horsepower than their racing bikes and can only take part in a championship in a handful of countries. As well as being the highest performing bike in the class, these bikes have a special place in the heart of motocross fans everywhere as the bikes that represented their favorite rider at a particular time.
In the super MOTOGP class, there are three main categories of fuel: petrol, bi-fuel and electric. Each category of fuel has three qualifying sessions, and all the cars must undergo a complete overhaul of engine parts before they can start in the race. There are four engine blocks in the super MOTOGP class: the normal (non-turbocharged) engine, the turbocharger, the supercharger and the dry sump engine. These blocks must be in pristine condition before any of the engines are allowed to compete. Oil, coolants and fuel filters are to be checked before the engine is loaded.
