MOTOGP, or Motorcycle mileage tracking is a common term used by motorcycle racers and the motorbike industry for documenting mileage while testing the various parts of a motorcycle. Many motorcycle racers use this term when they are tracking their progress and also reporting it to the insurance company in case of an accident. Many clubs and organizations offer the MOT testing services. This is a must if you want to participate in certain organized motorcycle races.
Grand Prix motorcycle racing is possibly the premier category of motorbike road racing events held regularly on road tracks specially sanctioned by the FédÉration Internationale de Motocross Rider’s Association. It has gained popularity over the years as one of the most popular spectator sports in the world. The GP stands for “Grande Premi G Polo” and is an event that uses two different kinds of racers. One type of racer is the Free Practice rider who can use all four cylinders of the Yamaha motorcycle they have and the other type of racer is the Anti-Ace driver who can only use two cylinders of the Yamaha.
The MOT test consists of several sections. The first section is called the “Intracoastal” and here all the components of the motorcycle are tested, including the suspension, the chassis, the brakes and so on. The second section is called the “Off-Road” section where all the four-stroke engines are tested on public roads without obstacles. Finally, the third section includes the “Stock” class where the riders try out all the parts of the bike with the exception of the tires which are driven on the tracks. If you want to be in the premier class then you need to be using the two-stroke engines.
When you are part of the motor championship you will get a trophy and an invitation to the next MOTOGP championship. There are two ways to qualify for the next MOTOGP championship. You can either win a race or you can qualify by finishing in the top twenty of the table. Some of the races are also included in the championship, and you have to fulfill all the requirements to be part of the championship. You will have to fulfill the criteria of the age, sex, height, weight and experience of the riders. For instance, the minimum age is fifteen years and the sex must be female.
The tires used in the race are not the ones used on the street, as they are special tires for the track racing. Only the top five teams can participate in the races and they are decided according to the results of the previous race. The purpose of these special tires is to provide the driver with maximum grip on the track. The two tires used by the drivers during the laps are called the Bridgestone APR B Bridgestone Cup and the Michelin DSV Pro Michelin.
Another interesting rule introduced in the new calendar year is that there will be another set of manufacturers from which the teams can choose their engines. The cars and the engines can be of any make but the manufacturers need to indicate this to the organizers. If there is a tie up between two manufacturers, it is considered as a point winner. The manufacturers who win three times in a row are declared the winners and get a chance to be the official times for the entire season.
