What Is A MOTogP Certification?
Motorcycle racing is currently the most popular category of motor sport road racing activities held on public road tracks licensed by the F édÉration Internationale de Motocrosse. With a history that spans over twenty-five years, it is considered one of the most popular motor sport activities in the world with millions of spectators tuning in to watch it live and in competition from all corners of the globe. It has evolved from a humble start as a means of transport for motorist and racing against horses and other vehicles to a spectacular exhibition of speed, acrobatics and technical skills. The modern day MOTOCLYP race is held to celebrate the sport’s past achievements, as well as projecting its future growth and expansion.
As with any other motor sport, there are several championships and events, both amateur and professional, that can be regarded as the pinnacle of motocross. The MOTMG Championship, also known as the MOTOCLYP Championship, is one of those occasions. It has been hailed as the premier championship in the world for motorcycles and is a highly respected racing event, held annually, with the overall title consisting of the MOTOCL title, the supreme prize of the DTM – The European Superbike Championship, and the top award of the coveted DTMcross championship. As with all other motor sport titles, the MOTOGP Championship is determined by a points system based off of the previous year’s performance. Each stage of the championship is split into three segments, each with its own set of criteria to be completed before the eventual title winners are chosen.
The first segment is called the Street Course segment and the cars must travel around the circuit in a similar fashion to a street racing track. The green areas of the track are completely different than the black or red ovals found elsewhere. The first three sectors feature tight bends, chicanes and hairpins, but the race track as a whole does not feature these types of characteristics. Instead, the track consists mainly of chicanes with banked turns, kerbs and steep gradients. As you would expect from a class that features the four-stroke motocross engine, the cars have to use horsepower in order to move through the corners. This helps to create the necessary traction for the drivers to stay on top of the competition.
The second segment of the MOTOGP Championship is known as the Sanctuary Class. During the early years of the motocross championship, it featured teams that were sponsored by Italian motorcycle companies. Valentino Poloino won the first ever World GP in the early days of the championship, a feat that was almost unprecedented at the time. Valentino himself also held the record of most consecutive victories during the first half of the century, a feat that was later matched by Alfa Romeo.
The third segment of the championship is known as the Technical Regulations Class. The rules and specifications governing the various different classes of the Grand prix differ from year to year. The general trend over the years has been to increase the power of the engines. The increase in horsepower has led to significant changes in the designs of the bodywork, as well. The new generation of Grand prix bikes now feature high down force along with increased ground clearance and wider bodywork. The need to reduce drag has prompted the addition of lower and wider forks to the older models, and reduced air intake steps and underbelly fuel tanks.
However, there is still room for one more category to join the MOTOGP, the 500cc class. Competitors in this class are allowed to race with modified fuel systems, exhausts, body kits and wheel weights. The idea behind the addition of these classes to the MOT was to create a class where the manufacturers could develop their own bespoke bikes for the top class championship. In addition to having a chance to win the world championship, drivers will also be able to take home prize money and other bonuses. However, it is not common for a grand prix bike to feature in the MOT, and only two-third of all races are won by vehicles with modified engines.
