Motorcycle Motocross, also known as MOTOGP is one of the two most well-known and widely-accepted disciplines of motorbike road-racing competitions. With more than a quarter million spectators tuning in to watch these races around the globe annually, it is clear why they have come to symbolize speed, bravery and achievement. In its purest form, MOTOGP is an international competitive racing championship that is open to riders of any bike style and age.
Grand Prix motorcycle racing is the premier category of motorcycle street racing events held over road tracks specially sanctioned by the Féeal Internationale de Motocross (FIM). It was introduced in 2021 with the intention of making a safer, more enjoyable road-racing experience for the general public. The primary goal is to promote responsibility and respect for all motorcyclists participating in such high-speed, high-risk activities such as motocross. The general public is kept informed about the general rules and regulations through various mediums including television, the FIM website, and through various local newspapers.
As part of its commitment to safety and community responsibility, the FIM continually updates its rules and regulations for motor bikes racing, such as the changing of the times for each race day. This enables competitors to gain a greater understanding of how to handle and ride their machines on slippery conditions, helping them improve their performance without putting their lives or others in danger. Other technological changes that have been made include changing the way in which the engine works to prevent problems during races. This has helped the sport grow in popularity not only to experienced riders but to novice enthusiasts too, who can enjoy the thrill of competition from a safer vantage point.
The new GP racing rules are designed to put less stress on the bike and more on the driver, giving him a greater sense of control and making the race much easier to control. There are three main sections of the new rules: the engines, the bodywork and the tyres. The engine regulations state that all engines must be constructed so that there is as little vibration as possible and a minimum of 5% compression. All engine speeds must be fixed, regardless of whether the bike is a mpg or a race bike.
The most important part of the new rules is the change in the way that tyres are judged. Originally, when a motorcycle was put on a test track, it would be driven at its maximum speed in order to determine its overall efficiency. However, these tests were subjective, taking into account only the luck of the draw. Now, all bikes are being measured based on the speed with which they brake both while braking and when the rear wheel is pushed into the ground by the tree, using a system called Stop/GO.
A minimum of three sets of non-compressible tires are required for each driver, and only two of the non-compressible tyres are permitted on any given circuit. All season Bridgestone tyres are now required to comply with these regulations, and the company has come up with a series of ‘standard’ tyres to meet these new regulations. The company has introduced a number of designs to increase the variety of designs it can create. It also plans to introduce a new range of non-compressible design tyres next year.
