The MOTOGP test stands for Motor Racing Under the Garage Door. It is an important requirement for any driver wishing to take his motorbike for testing purpose. Under this test a vehicle will be driven under real conditions in an approved track. This means that no wheel spin, excessive lean or wheelie will be allowed. It also includes the track conditions and the vehicle performance data. The purpose of this test is to ensure that any modifications or changes made to the vehicle will not cause a dangerous situation on the race track or in the pit garage.
This test will determine whether your motocross bike is safe enough to race in the championship. It will also evaluate the performance of your bike’s potential as well as any possible improvements you can make on your bike. This is to help ensure that your four-stroke engines are up to the standard needed for motocross and that all your machinery is ready to go in case you have to compete in the Motogp event. The MOTOGP test will be held in various countries across the globe in the coming weeks and months with dates to be confirmed shortly.
The MOTOGP test is very important for four-stroke motorcycles and for all three classes of super bikes in the world superbike championship. It is vital that each motorcycle is road legal and meets the regulations set out by the MOTC. These motorcycles will have to have passed all their MOT exams which are based on the latest version of the GSM motocross rules. You must also have your engines and electronics fully tested and in order to qualify for MOTOC you need to have a full working replica of your bike.
The MOT tests are carried out on the basis of weight and speed. Both are measured with specific equipment, which is then subjected to a wide range of checks. A panel of experts are sent to your track to carry out this procedure. The purpose of these inspections is to establish whether any modifications have been made to the vehicle or the running gear, and to see whether any modifications have been made to the tyres. The tyres are normally checked at each practice session before the race and at the race itself.
You may have noticed that there is a new style of motocross called Supercross. This is a completely new division of the sport and is built around these high-powered, limited track events which are held over two days in the USA and Canada. This division has been hugely popular with riders and teams who want to race in the top class but can’t because of the cost of travelling to these events. There are seven grands in total, with each held for a separate part of the year. The first two grands will have their own specific dates, with the other ones following at regular intervals.
As well as the engines, the four-stroke Motocross engines are subject to further scrutiny. The aim of these inspections is to check that the fuel is free from carbon monoxide, that the fuel and air flows are smooth, and that there are no leaks. Also, the number of cylinders is restricted to a maximum of three for each individual class. For the Supercross categories, there are four motorcycle engines, and therefore this also has an impact on the fuel regulations. The engines must be of a specific design and power, which are specified in the motor class rulebook.
