All About MOTOGP
MOTOGP or Maximum Motorcycling Performance Rules was introduced in 2021 to regulate high speed motor cycle racing and to standardize motorcycle components like the wheelbase, engine displacement and the total weight of the motorcycle. Grand Prix motor bike racing is currently the premier category of motorcycle road race events held at tracks officially sanctioned by the Fédération internationale de Motocrossessence. The maximum speed limit is 40 km/h but any participant can increase this if they have a special permit. There are many categories in which the bikes can be entered such as the amateur category, the conventional category and the professional category. The top three finishers in each category qualify for the grand prix.
The benefits of joining the MOTOGP is that it allows the riders to enjoy the road bike sport even without having to be a member of the FédÉration internationale de Motocrossessence. However, being a member of this elite club does come with some responsibilities. Being a member means you have to comply with all the rules and regulations of this premier class motor bike racing event. Some of these include wearing a full face helmet while riding a motorcycle and also wearing a full length leathers with a seatbelt in order to prevent the bike from jumping off the track. All participants are also required to have their correct MOT certificate in order to be accepted in the championship.
The four-stroke engines used in this category of motogp are limited to 500 cc or less. This makes the motocross bikes a little easier to handle in comparison to the two-stroke engines. In the four-stroke class, a rider completes one lap of the race without using any power but rather by using the traction control. If a rider uses more power then they have to remove more air before the bike comes to a stop. Each rider is also given a time restriction based on the engine capacity they use.
As it is with any other sport, an important consideration when it comes to the MOT is checking the tyres. Tyres must be checked on both sides of the rim for any wear or damage. There must also be no unevenness between the tyres as this can compromise the safety of the rider. The tyres must be inflated to the correct air pressure. The MOT will award a zero rating if any of the tyres are under-inflated.
One important aspect of this category of motorsport is that some teams will have two or more different sets of tyres for use in the race, depending on the circumstances. It is therefore very important to check that the tires that a team is using are not illegal for use on the streets. Road Wheels Bridgestone are the official tyres of the MOTG Formula 1 teams.
The three kinds of tyres used in this category of motor racing are; normal (a normal tire), track (used on a racetrack), and hilly car (for mountain bikes and motocross). The normal tires are recommended for use on a street car, whereas the track and hilly tires are ideal for use on bikes. If you intend to buy a new motorcycle, you should always choose the best possible tyres for your needs. This is because any wise customer will always choose the highest quality tyres available. The MOT will assess your motorcycle and recommend the right tyres for your motorcycle.
