Dorna WSBK Organization & FIM pave the way for new-look World Supersport class
Always at the forefront of innovation and striving forward, a bright future for WorldSSP awaits


The Permanent Bureau of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship has agreed on adding more models to the list of homologated motorcycles for the FIM Supersport World Championship class for the 2022 season and beyond. The class has been an official support class to WorldSBK since 1999 and has provided memorable moments, with this latest update to the regulations ensuring that this is guaranteed for years to come.
The addition of those models will go along with the introduction of amendments to the technical rules by the Superbike Commission, which will be announced shortly.

Jorge Viegas, FIM President
“For a long time Dorna and the FIM have been discussing the way to bring more manufacturers to this class without losing its competitiveness. We are now working towards finalising the new technical regulations to allow popular models in this range of capacity to participate in the WorldSSP Class which we believe will be more spectacular and attractive.”

Gregorio Lavilla, WorldSBK Executive Director
“The Supersport class has been always a great class with a mix of young and experienced riders that provides great racing. The DNA of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship has been always a platform where, besides riders, manufacturers can showcase their products. The motorsport industry has developed a lot lately and we feel this open-wide approach into motorsport is needed, always respecting our values and the one’s shared with our partners. We thank all the manufacturers, teams, riders and the FIM for their continued support; let’s work together for a brighter future.”

On this occasion, the Board addressed many topics, in particular the following:

COVID-19 pandemic: Thanks to the strong commitment of the FIM Family and stakeholders, all World Championships/Cups and Prizes could be held with only minor cancellations or changes in spite of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the 2021 sporting and non-sporting calendars .

Sport: All disciplines were discussed with a focus on the Supercross World Championship for which a tender for the promotion of this championship will soon be launched for the upcoming years. The status of the MiniGP World Series was addressed as well as the E-bikes, E-Motorcycles and E-Xplorer. Discussions related to the level of sound emissions took place. The Board decided to fix the new sound limit to 109dB/A with a margin of tolerance of +1dB/A (sound measuring method) for factory off-road motorcycles for 2023 and for production series off-road motorcycles for 2024. The e-sport Working Group presented its report to the Board.

Finance: The Board approved a draft 2022 budget as well as changes in calendar and licence fees which will be presented to the General Assembly for approval. The 2022 direct payments were also agreed.

Insurances: The status of the 2022-2024 international riders’ insurance programme was presented and the volunteers’ insurance project was introduced to the Board.

Public Affairs: The Board was informed of the status of the revision of the EU Motor Insurance Directive (Vnuk case). The Motorsport shall be the only sector specifically exempted from the scope of the directive. National Federations are encouraged to lobby at national level to ensure a proper integration of the exemption in the respective national legislations. After a tender process, FIPRA was retained as the new FIM’s EU public affairs consultant as of 2022.

Sustainability: The sustainability strategy developed by the International Sustainably Commission, together with external experts was presented to the Board. Discussions about alternatives energies such as electricity, eco-fuel or green-hydrogen were held.

Platforms and digitalisation: The platform listing the riders serving a period of ineligibility is ready to be implemented. It will centralise all information related to ineligibility of riders. The information on the platform will be provided by the riders’ FMNs. This tool will allow all FMNs to check the status of a rider before issuing a licence. The medical data platform (accidentology and riders’ status), aiming to provide a unique reference point for the FIM Medical Director and all FIM Chief Medical Officers, is currently being developed. This platform will allow to track the health status of the riders and to monitor the frequency and type of accident and related medical consequences in each case. The Working Group on digitalisation presented its first report to the Board. Its initial tasks included an assessment of the current state of play regarding digitalisation within the FIM and among the FMNs.

Education and training: Webinars with the participation of the FMNs were maintained with a satisfactory attendance rate. A training  aimed at FMN Secretaries General on “Resilience – how managers can manage during a crisis?” will be organised mid-October by FIM Europe with the cooperation of the FIM in Rome (Italy).

Marketing and Digital: An in-depth analysis of the marketing and digital contents of the FIM International Six Days’ Enduro was presented to the Board. The coverage on various platforms such as the website, social media, among others, was also addressed for this event for which the FIM is acting as promoter.

Communication: The FIM Hospitality will be present on 10 events on various disciplines during the 2021 season. It is the FIM official venue to host media, partners, stakeholders, meetings, officials at major racing events.

General Assembly and FIM Awards: The Board decided to hold the 2021 General Assembly and 2020-2021 FIM Awards in Monaco. Mandate was given to the Executive Board to decide on the 2022 General Assembly and 2022 FIM Awards venue. The 2022 Commissions Conference will take place in February in Divonne les Bains (France).

Amendments to Codes and Regulations: The Board approved amendments to the Statues and By Laws as well as the Sporting Code that will be submitted to the General Assembly for consideration. Several amendments to the Financial Regulations and Medical Code were also approved by the Board.

Jeremy Seewer joins the
FIM Ride Green Ambassadors team

 
 
 

The Swiss Motocross Rider, Jeremy Seewer is the latest rider to be inducted as an FIM Ride Green Ambassador and will join Takahisa Fujinami, Greg Hancock, Marc Márquez, Randy de Puniet, Alex Salvini, Laia Sanz and Pablo Quintanilla in working for future generations by promoting a culture of sustainability in their day-to-day practice of sport and in their everyday life.

Multi FIM MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez was the first ambassador to be appointed when the programme began back in 2012. Since then further ambassadors have been added to the programme who represent different genders and cultures, motorcycling disciplines and geographical areas, this diverse team of top riders lend their voices to convey the FIM’s sustainability policy and help to safeguard the future of the sport.

Jeremy Seewer who has been participating professionally since 2011 and has achieved important results in the motocross championship since the junior categories has the worthy values and class to join the Ride Green team in this important mission, which puts top athletes at the service of humanity and the future generations. Along with the other FIM Ride Green Ambassadors, Jeremy has been invited by the FIM to be a leader and play a major role in the contribution made by our sport to achieve a more sustainable World.

Jeremy, who also plays the piano and can be found playing Mozart or Chopin before and after his training sessions, is fully aware of the responsibility that a rider of his stature has to promote better practices in the sport and champion for a sustainable sport. Hence he is ready to accept his mission as a FIM Ride Green Ambassador, which will include:  Representing the FIM in environmental activities; Supporting the campaign through social media; Be the FIM Voice for the Ride Green Campaign.

Jeremy recognises that the riders have a responsibility to contribute in campaigns such as Ride Green and recognises the voices of the Ambassadors are a powerful force that can captivate millions of fans. Sport represents a very valuable vehicle for the shift in mindsets - with small changes that are simple to adopt, but represent a major contribution to the crisis and to mitigating climate change.

Speaking about his new role Jeremy Seewer explained: “I am pleased to have been appointed as an FIM Environmental Ambassador. It is an honour to be part of this select group of riders from all disciplines who have a great track record of social responsibility. As influencers and as professional riders we have the responsibility to set an example and to contribute to conserving our land, our planet. Because we are all users, and we must respect our resources in order to give future generations the opportunity to enjoy sport.  If we achieve a sustainable sport, we will be able to preserve our circuits and provide the opportunity for our young riders to enjoy it just as we do.”

Katia Juarez, Director of the FIM International Sustainability Commission added her comment: “Today we are very proud to welcome Jeremy Seewer. We have been following Jeremy's career for many years, and with my colleagues we are sure that he will be a great representative of the FIM environmental ambassador team.  Jeremy is a very kind person with great values. We love to see him enjoy the magic of music and we consider that his strength as a racer mixed with his sensitivity as an artist will be a perfect amalgamation to represent our team of ambassadors. Thanks to Jeremy’s influence and popularity we can expect to see still more inspiration amongst our fans!”

The FIM & CAKE announce joint venture
in the frame of the FIM Sustainability Week

 
 
 

The partnership establishes foundations towards sustainable Mobility worldwide.

CAKE, the Swedish leader in premium electric off-road motorbikes, announced today a partnership with The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), the governing body of motorcycle sport and the global advocate for motorcycling.

The FIM already has a solid sustainability strategy and one of the six main pillars that confirms this policy is the Climate programme that covers several areas: CO2 calculators, promotion of sustainable transportation, neutrality policy and the introduction of championships with electric vehicles mainly in road racing and trial, with other disciplines being explored. From its side, Cake's sustainable approach is based on clean technology, circularity, product life cycle approach, and ethical conduct. Both the FIM and Cake also agrees in five of the Global Goals: Good Health and wellbeing, equality, Clean Energy, Responsible Consumption and Climate Action.

The first step of the partnership is to provide the CAKE Ösa utility bikes as the FIM’s main transportation in the paddock area. Paddock bikes have always played an important role when it comes to covering big distances at the races and being able to move around the track in a respectful way is another step in the right direction.

“Being chosen by FIM is an honour, with our primary ambition being to bring purpose in what we create. Hard work and tons of logistics is the recipe for successful races and events. The Ösa utility bikes will be the best friend and perfect work tool for the FIM staff and the different needs to prepare and pull off great events. The collaboration sets the framework and a needed first step towards zero-emission racing.” Said Stefan Ytterborn, CEO & Founder of CAKE.

“One of the priority areas of the FIM Sustainability Strategy is the Climate. Our objectives in this area are aligned with the Global Objectives and at this time, in which the world is oriented towards the same objective, it is extremely important to incorporate energy alternatives in the different areas of the organisation. We are aware of the climate emergency and, we are building and raising awareness about a neutral future. This alliance with Cake will be an amazing tool that will facilitate the transport of our team in the field in the different events with a minimum impact and we hope it will be a showcase that shows some of the solutions in alternative transport. Piece of Cake !!” explained Kattia Juarez, FIM Sustainability Commission Director.

"On behalf of the FIM, I thank CAKE for this partnership. It is a real pride to be linked to such an innovative and visionary company. The design of the Ösa utility bikes reflects sustainable technology and the FIM vision to look with great interest at new forms of mobility. The two vehicles allocated to the FIM will be fully equipped, one to transport equipment, and another with the capacity for passenger, both are customised in the colours of the FIM!" concluded Fabio Muner, FIM Marketing & Communication Director.

FIM Grand Prix World Championship

MotoGP™ sets focus on sustainability

Investigations begin into more eco-friendly fuels, targeting a more sustainable future for all classes of the Championship.

The FIM, IRTA, the MSMA and Dorna Sports have begun to work on refocusing the long-term sustainability goals of the FIM MotoGP World Championship.

All parties agree on the importance of sustainability both within the Championship and around the world at large, and are designing a path to making all classes of the FIM MotoGP World Championship more eco-friendly, with particular focus on more sustainable fuels.

In one of the most competitive eras ever, built on many years of technical and sporting regulation changes aimed at creating the greatest racing show on Earth, all stakeholders are committed to creating a greener Championship without compromising the incredibly high level of sport and entertainment, targeting a sustainable future for both the global environment and the MotoGP paddock. As a consequence, all parties are also in agreement that this opportunity should be used to propose global solutions to address the performance of the MotoGP™ class machines in order to continue to improve the safety of the riders.

More information on the sustainable future of the Championship will be provided in the coming weeks and months as work continues towards creating an attainable vision of a more eco-friendly MotoGP.

2021 - The Year of the People

 
 
 

The season has started ! We are excited to launch the 2021 FIM Ride Green campaign more sustainable than ever on the occasion of the first Grand Prix of the season. The whole situation we faced last year, and the present circumstances have given us the guidelines to rethink our strategy and renew our objectives. We have been resilient and creative.

 
 
 
RIDE_GREEN_2021.jpg

Since we started with the Ambassador's project in 2013, we have collaborated with seven great riders with a global reputation who give a strong voice to the FIM Ride Green programme.

Kattia Juárez, the FIM Sustainability Commission Director explains the direction of the 2021 FIM Ride Green Campaign: "Since its inception, the programme has been dedicated to supporting the environmental sphere of sustainability, raising awareness and taking action in the organisation of environmentally friendly events. From sound control in all competitions, waste management, pollution control, respect for biodiversity. We have aligned our events with global goals for the most part. With the introduction of KiSS* events, we have transcended the other two sustainability spheres: people and the economic sphere. This year, the FIM is working to adapt this 2021 campaign to the social sphere dedicated to "The people".

Racing without you, the fans, is not the same, and we are working hard to bring the sport back to you . Nevertheless, we want you to return to the circuits to cheers the riders and to enjoy the events that have been carefully prepared and managed with all the actors: promoters, organisers, volunteers, medical staff, officials. Our "we are waiting for you" campaign is focused on raising awareness about the importance of preparing for a more sustainable and responsible return.

We want to come back more sustainable than ever, and you are an indispensable part of this campaign."

The following persons attended virtually:

FIM: Jorge Viegas - FIM President; Jean-Paul Gombeaud - Sports Director; Jean-François Wulveryck - CRT Director; Gregory Ricci - CRT Coordinator; Dominique Hebrard - CTI Technical Manager; Mathieu Piccand and Miguel Sanchez - CTI Coordinators.

ASO: David Castera - Dakar Director and Thierry Viardot - Dakar Technical.

Manufacturers and Teams: Jordi Viladoms - KTM; Pierre-Alexandre “Pela” Renet - HVA; Alexandre Kowalski and Marc Bourgeois – Yamaha; David Casteu – Sherco; Wolfgang Fischer – Hero; Ruben Faria and Hélder Rodrigues - HRC Honda; and Henk Hellegers - HT Rally Raid.

The main topics of discussion centred around improving safety in FIM Cross-Country rallies, which resulted in the following decisions:

Tyres: The number of rear tyres will be limited to one per race day except for the marathon stages where tyre change is prohibited. Teams entered in RallyGP must announce the brand and model of tyre when registering.

Airbag jackets, airbag vests: These have been tested since 2020 and this process has produced good results. The FIM will continue to work in this area in order to reduce trauma in this discipline.

Roadbook: The vocabulary of the road book will be re-studied in order to return to the use of traditional icons, in particular when signalling danger.

Audible Alerts: The implementation of audible alerts for the announcement of danger levels 2 and 3 has been positive, and hence this systematic application will continue. The warning radius should be increased from 200 to 300 metres from the danger positions so that riders can anticipate their braking at high speed.

Number of Sealed Pistons / Engine: For the RallyGP category, the engines will be sealed. A seal on the top of the engine and a seal on the bottom of the engine will be placed during preliminary scrutineering. During Rallies of 5 days of racing, no change of pistons or internal parts of the top of the engine will be allowed. During Marathon Rallies, the top of the engine can only be opened once to carry out repairs. If opened for a second time for Marathon rallies or for a first time for 5 days rallies, a 10 minutes penalty will be applied.

Fuel Tank capacity: The total fuel capacity that is permitted to be carried in all tanks remains at 35 litres maximum and the required distance remains at 250km, however on fast and sandy stages, the organiser shall reduce this distance to 220km.

Refuelling time: The time allotted for refuelling will be increased from 15 minutes to 20 minutes, in order to give a rest time and to allow the cartridges of Airbag vests to be changed (plus refuelling, water replenishment, roadbook calibration etc…) but no work on the bike is allowed.

Maximum speed limitation: In 2023, the 150 Km/h speed limitation will be mandatory. The FIM will work with the manufacturers to electronically (GPS) limit the maximum speed in RallyGP to 150Km/h in 2022 (with an audible alert from 145Km/h).

Limitation of digital screens on the tower or handlebars: Only digital screens provided by the organisation (GPS, TRIP, Roadbook etc…) will be allowed to be fitted on RallyGP motorcycles.

Improvement of helmet standards: The FIM has already improved the helmet standards for circuit racing championships (FRHPhe-01), and by the end of 2021 the FIM aims to publish the specifications of the standard for off-road helmets. The second phase of the FHRP (FIM Homologation Racing Program) programme for competition helmets should come into effect within a few years (FRHPhe-02: 2025 target). While waiting for the FIM standard to become compulsory, the European ECE standard for helmets is evolving towards version 22.06. The current standard 22.05 is valid until 2023 at the latest.

After the meeting Jorge Viegas – FIM President said: “I would like to thank all the participants for this fruitful meeting. Although the 2020 season was shortened in the field because of the pandemic, we were still able to continue working on the regulations, equipments and solutions aimed at reducing the number and severity of accidents in rally. We are eager to test the adjustments at the start of this exciting season, as everyone involved can't wait to get back to competition.”

FIM Statement - Sharni Pinfold
The FIM is closely monitoring the situation following the statement made on social media by the Australian rider Sharni Pinfold, which aroused strong emotions within the motorcycling community. Gender equality is a core value for the FIM, which constantly strives to ensure the well-being of all riders and stakeholders. The FIM was upset to hear the news and takes the statement made by Ms. Pinfold very seriously. The FIM and the Australian Motorcycling Federation have maintained close contact with the young rider to understand the facts which led Sharni to such discouragement. We would like to stress that Sharni Pinfold can count on the unconditional support of the FIM to overcome this challenge.

The FIM recalls that the practice of motorcycling is open to all without discrimination and condemns any form of behavior contrary to these values. Any form of discrimination based on political, religious, sexual or racial grounds shall never be tolerated. Since 2006 the FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission (CFM) has been working hard to create equal opportunities and promote equal treatment for women involved in motorcycle-related activities.

 “The FIM does not accept any kind of discrimination towards our riders, regardless of their gender. We are one motorcycling family, everyone is welcome. No inappropriate or disturbing comments or actions shall be tolerated. We aim at supporting all riders and enabling them to pursue their dreams and keep their motivation high. The FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission, together with the FIM and its stakeholders, continue to work hard to improve gender equality in our sport at all levels", concluded the CFM Director, Ms Nita Korhonen.

Ms Pinfold added: “From experiencing what I have in my own journey, my wish is that I am able to contribute to the awareness of disrespectful and misogynistic treatment towards females. I truly hope I am able to encourage the much needed improvement throughout the motorcycle industry and all industries where females are treated differently. This is not just me, there are many other women that have been treated poorly and as a result I hope to be able to empower others to know the importance and value of self-worth.
It would be easy for me to sit back and point fingers at the people responsible, but I feel that true strength is determined by how we respond. I am not here to be a victim, I am here to stand for what is right and extend that message outwardly for all women. I am grateful for the support and for the measures taken by the FIM, with the clear focus being equality for all. This is what we stand for.”

18 riders from across the globe get ready to fight it out in another spectacular season of MotoE™

18 riders representing 10 countries will battle it out this season, including 2020 Cup winner Jordi Torres (Pons Racing 40) as he prepares to defend the throne. 2019 winner and 2020 runner-up Matteo Ferrari (Trentino Gresini MotoE) also returns, as does third overall Dominique Aegerter (Dynavolt Intact GP). There are some interesting move for fellow riders of experience too as race winner Eric Granado switches to One Energy Racing and Alessandro Zaccone  heads for Octo Pramac MotoE.

The likes of Mattia Casadei (Ongetta SIC58 Squadra Corse), Lukas Tulovic (Tech3 E-Racing), Maria Herrera (Openbank Aspar Team) and Xavier Cardelus (Avintia Esponsorama Racing) also remain on the grid, and there are some exciting new – and well-known – faces too.  
Yonny Hernandez joins Octo Pramac MotoE as the popular Colombian makes a return to the Grand Prix paddock, and Hikari Okubo will be putting his WorldSSP experience to the test in a new challenge with Avant Ajo MotoE. Miquel Pons and Kevin Zannonni join LCR E-Team, Fermin Aldeguer will race as Herrera’s teammate at Openbank Aspar, Andrea Mantovani partners Ferrari at Trentino Gresini MotoE, Corentin Perolari joins Tulovic at Tech3 E-Team and Portuguese rider Andre Pires joins the ranks of Avintia Esponsorama Racing. How will the rookies get on? With a mix of backgrounds – and seeing the success of the likes of Torres on his debut – it will be another exciting year.  

There is one name that remains to be confirmed at Pons Racing 40 as the team get ready to expand for 2021 and run two Energica Ego Corsas.

FIM Grand Prix World Championship
2021 Provisional Calendar, update 22 January.

2021 FIM MotoGP™ World Championship provisional calendar update
Two races in Qatar and one in Portimão will now open the season, with the Argentina and Americas GPs postponed

 

The FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports can now reveal an updated calendar for the 2021 FIM MotoGP™ World Championship as the beginning of another exciting season of racing appears on the horizon, with testing action set to get underway in just over a month.

The season opening Grand Prix in Qatar remains confirmed for the 26th to the 28th of March and it will now be followed by a second event, the Grand Prix of Doha, at the same Losail International Circuit the following weekend, from the 2nd to the 4th of April.

The Autodromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal will then host the third round of the Championship from the 16th to the 18th of April before the paddock heads to the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto as previously planned.

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and resulting lockdowns and complications sadly oblige the postponement of both the Argentina GP and the Americas GP until the last quarter of 2021. Any further updates or changes will be provided as soon as available.

FIM and WESS join forces to launch the
FIM Hard Enduro World Championship in 2021

 
 

The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) and WESS Promotion GmbH are pleased to announce that they agreed to join forces to further enhance the Hard Enduro Sport worldwide.

 
 

The “World Enduro Super Series” will be leveraged under the FIM umbrella and renamed into the “FIM Hard Enduro World Championship” with an inaugural season in 2021.

A new Pro-Class regulation, in line with all FIM international standards, will offer the highest level of transparency and fairness to professional riders, teams and manufacturers who will compete to win the official world-recognized title of FIM Hard Enduro World Champion.

At the same time the success-building nature of the WESS, the active integration of amateur riders, will stay an inherent and defining characteristic of the series. The common effort of amateurs and professionals competing within in the same race will further attract enthusiasts around the world to participate in FIM Hard Enduro World Championship events, thus ensuring a long-term growth of the Championship.

Following the signature of the agreement, Tony Skillington, FIM CEO, expressed his satisfaction and declared: “Every once in a while an opportunity comes to do something very interesting and new in motorcycle sport. I am completely convinced that this Championship will become a very important part of the FIM calendar in the future and I am more than pleased that we are finally signing a four-year contract for the promotion of a FIM Hard Enduro World Championship. I also appreciate the energy and dedication that both FIM and WESS have deployed together to work on all of the ways to make this Championship a success.”

Winfried Kerschhaggl, WESS Promotion GmbH states: “This is a very exciting time for us and our sport. Following an incredibly busy time, building and shaping WESS, work is paying off. The past three years helped us to gain the recognition of the FIM. A special thanks from our side goes to Tony Skillington, who has been very supportive since the conversations about a joint project started. We’re ready to take the next step as the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship. Together with the FIM we move into 2021 with confidence and enthusiasm and look forward to ongoing exciting racing.”

Motorcycles learn to ‘talk car'

 
 
 

A consortium, including vehicle manufacturers and the FIM, today launches a standard for motorcycles to be able to communicate with other vehicles as well as pieces of infrastructure and each other. The standard is expected to have long-term benefits for motorcycle safety.

 
 
Connected Motorcycle Consortium.jpg
 
 
Connected Motorcycle Consortium_logo.png
 

The Connected Motorcycle Consortium (CMC) is a collaboration between manufacturers, suppliers, researchers and associations to make Powered Two Wheelers (motorcycles and scooters) part of the future connected mobility. 

CMC is a non-profit organisation established by key motorcycle makers with the unilateral goal to promote and develop Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) on a global scale.

 
 
49.png
 
 

This consortium, created in 2016, is known as the Connected Motorcycle Consortium (CMC). The aim of the consortium is to improve motorcycle rider safety and comfort, a goal generally shared by the FIM, hence our involvement and support. Other members of the consortium include motorcycle manufacturers, suppliers and researchers.

The standard, known as the Basic Specification of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) for motorcycles and other Powered Two-Wheelers (PTW), is comprised of a set of documents which address various topics including triggering conditions, localisation accuracy, algorithms and communicated data and rider interface and antenna performance. The CMC has been working on around 30 different applications for this technology ranging from alerting riders to the nearest refuelling/recharging opportunity to blind-spot warning technology.

By allowing different types of vehicles to communicate with each other for the first time, it is expected that many accidents could simply be avoided. One such accident is the common “looked but failed to see” scenario where a car driver inadvertently pulls out in front of a motorcycle. The C-ITS standard means that the motorcycle could now alert the car to the presence of the motorcycle allowing the car to activate its autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system.

Mr Jorge Viegas, President of the FIM said “Technology is hard to integrate into motorcycles, but it is clear that some technology can help motorcycles share the road safely. We teach riders about the importance of eye-contact with other road users, but allowing motorcycles to ‘talk car’ adds another layer of communication that will inevitably save thousands of lives for decades to come.”

Claire Depré, Head of Unit Sustainable & Intelligent Transport, DG Mobility and Transport, EC has congratulated CMC “for the work carried out, for bringing much more innovation and contributing to the safety of the overall transport system.”

GBRacing awarded the very first
FIM Quality Product Label

 
 

The FIM is delighted to announce that GBRacing’s crankcase protection, the now famous secondary engine covers has been awarded the first ever 'FIM Quality Product Label' as recently launched by the FIM, aiming to endorses the highest level products and services both on and off the track, and that will benefit every-day road riders as well as those that race at either amateur or professional levels.

GBRacing has been committed to the FIM Programmes for the past 11 years, with its crankcase protection achieving and maintaining the high standards required to attain this prestigious award. Constant product development working alongside world championship-winning teams in World Superbike, Moto2 and World Endurance has played a huge part in ensuring that GBRacing products are thoroughly tested at the very highest level of production motorcycle racing.

This trickle-down effect of this development, together with the assurance of the FIM Quality Product Label, is that all riders, from road bike commuters and avid track day enthusiasts to keen club racers, can benefit from the same top quality parts as used by some of the world's best teams and riders.

In addition to having to meet the fundamental product standards set out, the new FIM Quality Product Label award process also takes into account other aspects such as company ethical standards including business practices and environmental responsibility. This is something that GBRacing is proud to have achieved, having made changes to various working practices in an effort to reduce waste and encourage recycling. The Ride Green-inspired ZERO-e project also proved a great success, reducing GBRacing's energy usage at numerous race circuits both in the UK and in Europe.

Graham Banks, founder and managing director of GBRacing said: "This is a great reward for the GBRacing team who put in so much hard work behind the scenes to make sure that every part we produce works for every bike. Just as we are very proud to have been chosen by a number of factory racing teams, it is a great honour to continue our long association with the FIM and to have attained the new FIM Quality Product Label. With some exciting plans in place for the further development of GBRacing, we are already looking forward to the 2021 racing season."

Fabio Muner, FIM Marketing & Communication Director added: “GBRacing is a long-term partner with them having first joined the initial FIM programme back in 2009. Today they have become the very first company to be awarded with the new FIM Quality Product Label. The fact that a high-quality brand like GBRacing continues its commitment to our programme demonstrates the commercial value and importance of having products approved by the FIM for the motorcycle accessories market. Being awarded with the new FIM Quality Product Label also represents a real positioning advantage, which will be recognised by customers when they make their next purchase. We look forward to applying our label to their products and packages starting from 2021.”

FIM Board of Directors meets for the last time in 2020

 
 
The FIM Board of Directors met face-to-face and via videoconference on 2 and 3 December 2020. While most of European Board Members were able to travel to the FIM Headquarters in Switzerland, overseas Members attended via Zoom as a consequence of the sanitary protection measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Board welcomed newly elected FIM Oceania President, Mr Peter Doyle.

On this occasion, the Board addressed many topics, in particular the following:

COVID-19 pandemic: The FIM expressed its thoughts to all FIM Family Members impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. A review of the 2020 sporting and non-sporting season was drawn. Despite the difficulties encountered during the lockdown period resulting from the pandemic, the FIM could organise most of the world championships. The Board wished to thank all FMNs, CONUs, Commission Directors and Members, Officials and Volunteers as well as the organisers, riders, promoters and all other FIM stakeholders who made motorcycle sport triumph.

Sport: The FIM will act as promoter of the FIM EnduroGP World Championship for the 2021 season. A tender for the promotion of this championship will be launched for 2022-2026 + 2027-2031 as well as a tender for the promotion of the FIM X-Trial World Championship for the same period. The FIM will also continue to act as a promoter for the FIM TrialGP World Championship in 2021. The Board decided to create a working group, led by FIM Sports Director Mr Jean-Paul Gombeaud together with Board Members Messrs Jan Stovicek, Stephan Carapiet and Pedro Venturo Jr to explore opportunities in relation with e-sport. The future of the Technical Department as regards its mission and objectives for the short, medium and long term was presented to the Board. In addition, the Board agreed to create, subject to approval by the General Assembly, the FIM HardEnduro World Championship and Cup, FIM MiniGP Series, FIM Motocross Vintage World Cup, FIM Trial Vintage World Cup, FIM Veteran Bajas World Cup, FIM Sand Race World Cup, FIM Enduro Vintage World Cup and to make the FIM Enduro Women World Cup a World Championship.

Insurance: The Board extended the international rider’s insurance programme for 2021. Board Member, Mr Peter Doyle, will assist the FIM Sports and Operations Directors to analyse and benchmark the future of this insurance programme. It was decided that the FIM travel insurance programme would cover CONU officials (except for FIM Europe) also when operating in their country of residence as of 2021.

FIM Family Week: Due to the current situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the still on-going travelling and organisational restrictions, the Board decided that the FIM Family Week, regrouping the 2020 FIM and CONUs Board meetings and General Assemblies, as well as the 2021 Commissions Conference would be organised remotely via online platforms. The FIM Prize Giving Ceremony and the FIM Family Dinner will be cancelled. The 2020 World Champions, who all received their medals during the season, will be invited to celebrate together with the 2021 World Champions during the 2021 FIM Awards in Monte-Carlo (Monaco).

Finance: The extraordinary situation impacted the 2020 accounts, however thanks to significant efforts and substantial savings, a breakeven result is expected. The Board approved a draft 2021 budget as well as changes in calendars and licences fees which will be presented to the General Assembly for approval. In addition, 2020 amended and 2021 direct payments were approved.

Affiliations: Iraq will be recommended as new FMN at the next General Assembly and several discussions took place related mainly to Mozambique, Canada and Israel.

Commissions: The integration of two new Members was approved by the Board:
- CMI – Member, Dr Saravanan Annamalai (MAM)
- CTL – Member, Mr Vittorio Angela (FMI)

The Board further ratified the withdrawal of Mr Kurt Ljungqvist (SML) from the CMS.

Touring and Leisure Commission (CTL): A CTL promotional plan with branding, promotional kits, brochure and merchandising as well as a loyalty card project was presented to the Board by CTL Director, Mr Nuno Trepa Leite. The concept was approved and Mr Leite was acknowledged for the great work presented.

Seminars and on-line trainings: The Board of Directors decided that licences for Officials will not be extended and stressed the importance of on-line seminars and trainings; all Commissions are therefore requested to organise their seminars online.

Distinctions and trophies: The Board will recommend the General Assembly to award the title of Honorary Members to Mr Graham Brodie (CCP) and Mr John Chatterton-Ross (CAP). In addition, the 2020 FIM Solidarity Trophy will be granted to several FMNs in recognition of services rendered to the community / society during the pandemic and a FIM Special Projects will be allocated for 2020.

Amendments to Codes: Revisions to the Financial Regulations, Code for Touristic Gatherings, Statutes and By-Laws as well as Sporting Code were voted on. The amendments related to the Statutes and By-Laws and Sporting Code will be submitted to the General Assembly for approval.

International Foundation for Motorcycling (IFM): The constitutive act of the foundation was signed on 30 November 2020 by FIM President Mr Jorge Viegas and FIM Deputy CEO Mrs Françoise Emery, before the Swiss notary Mrs Françoise Demierre Morand, from the Gampert Demierre Moreno notary public office based in Geneva, Switzerland. The first ever meeting of the IFM Board, composed of FIM and IFM President Mr Jorge Viegas, FIM Europe President Mr Martin De Graaff, FIM CEO Mr Tony Skillington, FIM Family Legend and former FIM CEO Mr Guy Maitre and multiple time FIM Grand Prix World Champion Mr Giacomo Agostini, will take place on 30 January 2021.

FIM launches new FIM Quality Product label

 
 

The FIM is pleased to announce the launch of its new FIM Quality Product (FQP) Label, which builds on and replace the initial approval scheme that the FIM first introduced back in 2009. The FQP aims to create a substantial connection to the FIM World Championships and Events and the industry over a licensing programme aligned with the FIM standards.

 
 
FQP label - Background.jpg
 
 
49.png
 
 

The new FIM Quality Product label will provide a great opportunity for stakeholders within the motorcycle industry to gain this recognised seal of approval - subject to the relevant strict requirements being met - that can be used in the associated communication and marketing materials.

The aim of this new programme is for the FIM to endorse the highest level products and services both on and off the track, and that will benefit every-day road riders as well as those that race at either amateur or professional levels. Moreover, revenues generated by the FQP scheme will contribute to the ongoing development of the motorcycling and through education, training and awareness this programme will be making all motorcycling activities – sporting and non-sporting – stronger, safer and more accessible to a broader audience.

For a product or service to be awarded the prestigious FIM Quality Product label it must be compliant with the international standards related to market distribution or those laid down by the FIM, which have been drawn up using the huge knowledge and experienced gained over many years through the FIM’s truly global network of CONU’s, national federations, local organisers and clubs, plus thousands of associated riders. In addition to having to meet the fundamental standards set out, the award process will also take into account other aspects such as safety, health, performance, plus ethical standards including business practices and environmental responsibility.

Speaking about this new programme Fabio Muner – FIM Marketing and Communication Director explained: “No other organisation can count on the same Worldwide network in the motorcycle sector and as such the FIM is perfectly placed to use its wealth of knowledge and experience in this field to provide this recognised and trusted programme. When motorcyclists see the FIM Quality Product label, they will know that the product or service has only gained this status after having passed a robust process. It is the power of this licensing programme even if its aims do not rely on the quality improvement of the market products, but much more to recognise the already good-quality products.

2021 provisional Calendar, 11 November.


The FIM &  Infront Moto Racing are delighted to share the provisional calendar for the 2021 FIM Motocross World Championship season.

The 2021 season will begin later than usual; the plan is now to kick things off at the beginning of April, in order to give time for the pandemic to ease and for the teams and riders to carry out the testing and preparations that are needed for another intense season of racing. The aim is to keep the calendar with the usual format, though this will be adapted, if needed, to the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2021 racing calendar will feature 20 Grand Prix races and will introduce four brand-new venues, for the MXGP of Oman at the Muscat circuit, along with the MXGP of the Netherlands in Oss, the MXGP of Finland in Itti-KymiRing, already presented to feature in the 2020 calendar but then postponed to 2021, and the MXGP of Igora Drive in Russia.

Additionally, the FIM Motocross World Championship will also be returning to some of the favourite venues, including Agueda, Teutschenthal, Orlyonok, Kegums, Jakarta, Semarang, Loket, Lommel, Uddevalla, Afyonkarahisar, St Jean d’Angely, into Xanadu-Arroyomolinos and Neuquen, Argentina.

The season will begin on the 3rd of April 2021 with the MXGP of Oman, before heading back to Europe for the MXGP of Italy, followed by the MXGP of Portugal, Netherlands, Germany, Russia and Latvia. Then the series will head to Asia for two rounds in Indonesia, before returning to Czech Republic, Belgium, Sweden and Finland. Towards the end of August, MXGP will return to Russia for the MXGP of Igora Drive, followed by Turkey, China, France, Spain and ending at the beautiful Patagonia Argentina.

And of course, after a year break, 2021 will also see the awaited return of worldwide best off road event, Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations, which will head to Imola, Italy on the 26th of September.

Publication of the Women in Motorsports Conference Legacy Report

Last year the FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission, in partnership with the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission, united forces for the first ever joint event for Women in Motorsports that was hosted in Finland. The conference brought together almost 40 high level speakers and more than 100 representatives from 25 different countries across every continent.
 

To celebrate the one year anniversary of this historical conference, the 2020 Women in Motorsports Legacy Report was published today. The report sums up the main findings of the conference and includes legacy messages from several speakers.


FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission Director Nita Korhonen:
“On the first anniversary of the historical Women in Motorsports Conference, it is a great pleasure to remind the extent of the impact that our first ever joint event made. I hope that as a legacy of the conference we all recognize the importance and the power of our co-operation. We can only rise by lifting each other.”


FIA Women´s Commission President Michèle Mouton:
“Over the last 11 years, FIA´s and FIM´s women´s commissions have had a great collaboration sharing knowledge, experience and best practices. The 2019 Women in Motorsports Conference was a landmark and it underlined how we can learn from each other creating a bigger community of inspirational women working in so many areas of our two different, yet related sports.”


FIM President Jorge Viegas:
“For the FIM it is very important to include both women and men in every aspect of our activities. Equity is the key for all of us and we definitely are on the right path in this regard. Last year´s conference was a big success and we will keep on doing our best to make the world of motorcycling as inclusive as possible.”


FIA President Jean Todt:
“FIA is committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive culture across motor sport. The Women in Motorsports Conference successfully organised in Finland last year was a great networking platform for FIA and FIM to jointly promote gender equality, encourage gender-balanced participation, and empower women to reach leadership positions.”

FIM Grand Prix World Championship

Decisions of the Grand Prix Commission

The Grand Prix Commission, composed of Messrs. Carmelo Ezpeleta (Dorna, Chairman), Paul Duparc (FIM), Herve Poncharal (IRTA) and Takanao Tsubouchi (MSMA), in electronic meetings held on 22 and 27 May 2020, made the following decisions which are consequent on the impact of the coronavirus epidemic:

MOTOGP CLASS ENGINE ALLOCATION

Even though the FIM, IRTA, MSMA and Dorna are optimistic about restarting the Championship, it’s still uncertain how many events it will be possible to hold in 2020. For this reason it has been unanimously approved that the MotoGP Class engine allocation would be decided before agreed before publication of the revised calendar and would be per-event as follows: Remaining Events on the 2020 Calendar (Qatar Grand Prix excluded)

ENGINE ALLOCATION PER RIDER

Non-Concession Manufacturers

Manufacturers Qualifying for Concessions

up to 11 events

4

6

up to 14 events

5

7

MOTO3 AND MOTO2 CLASS PRIVATE TESTING

With immediate effect, riders in these classes will not be permitted to make further private testing in 2020 until further notice.

The following considerations prompted this decision:

With team income being significantly reduced, a ban on testing for all riders will level the playing field between those teams that might have better funding and those that might just be surviving on the monthly subsidy payments.

Availability of circuits is going to be even more limited than normal and may be subject to government restrictions. Furthermore, travel restrictions in Europe and around the World, still vary between countries meaning that only some teams might be permitted to move with vehicles and staff to a test. Most of the travel restrictions seem to be applicable until, at least, the end of June.

FIM, IRTA and Dorna are hoping to have a significant number of events, hopefully starting in July. These events will be condensed into a short period of time meaning that, in any case, there are limited days available for testing once racing is resumed.

It is the intention of Dorna to hold additional test sessions, for all classes, during the week of the first event.

Dunlop activities are currently limited with many key staff being furloughed. They have already indicated that they will not be able to provide a service at private tests.

A regularly updated version of the FIM Grand Prix Regulations which contains the detailed text of the regulation changes may be viewed shortly on:

FIM Board of Directors met by videoconference

For the first time ever and as a consequence of the sanitary protection measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the FIM Board of Directors met via videoconference on 21 May 2020.

During this second 2020 meeting, the Board addressed many topics, in particular:

COVID-19 pandemic: The Board expressed its thoughts to all FIM Family members impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and its gratitude to all FIM stakeholders working for the resumption of motorcycling in these difficult times. Indeed, many sporting and non-sporting events were postponed or cancelled due to the pandemic and led the FIM to develop a crisis budget and to freeze many investments. However, the FIM declared its solidarity with its FMNs, riders, organisers by taking the following main decisions: FMNs were exempted of the 2020 membership fees, cancellation fees would not be applied should the events be cancelled due to the pandemic, project subsidies would be allocated, the validity of the officials licences would be extended until March 2021 and a 2020 FIM Solidarity Trophy would be awarded. The Board also wished to highlight the strong support of and cooperation with its promoters during this crisis. The Board stressed its desire of being optimistic and not to let anything defeat motorcycling sport.

Sport: All sporting disciplines were discussed and impacted by this lockdown period with events being rescheduled or cancelled. During the times of the pandemic, the Board agreed to decrease the minimum number of events per series (in all the FIM disciplines) while still considering them as FIM World Championships or Cups and to allow the 2020 sporting season to extend in 2021 as a last resort to complete a FIM World Championship or Cup. It was also agreed to reduce the promotional costs for the FIM Trial GPs and to apply no calendar fee for the E-Bike events. Ongoing and positive negotiations and communication took place with KTM/WESS with regards to the FIM Hard Enduro World Cup, it was expected that a final agreement be reached within a short period. Early March, the FIM met with ASO, organisers, team managers, riders and manufacturers regarding rally safety. The main objective of this constructive meeting was to reduce the number of accidents and to increase safety in all rally events, with a particular focus on the Dakar Rally. The Board decided to launch a reflection on the esports opportunities.

Ethical Chamber: Mrs Clotilde GALY, former CJI Member and then Director for 25 years, was newly appointed by the Board to the Ethical Chamber.

Finance: The Board approved the 2019 Audited Financial Statements and agreed with a 2020 crisis budget as a consequence of the pandemic.

2020 FIM and CONUs General Assemblies and FIM Awards: These institutional events were also impacted by the pandemic. The FIM Europe Congress had to be postponed and would take place, like other CONUs GAs, within the framework of the FIM GA. The Board concluded that no date for the 2020 FIM GA and FIM Awards could be set for the time being, neither its format, due to the sanitary protection measures. The Board decided to postpone the 2020 FIM Trophies Programmes to 2021 due to the lockdown which led to the impossibility for all those involved in world motorcycling to propose candidates.

We, the riders campaign (WTR): During this lock-down period, the FIM launched the #RidersAtHome campaign, which was supported by many FMNs, riders and promoters. The FIM digital communication significantly increased and served as support for the FIM Family to share solidarity messages and initiatives.

Seminars and on-line trainings: The Board also discussed the on-going revision of the training and seminar system with the objectives of mainly clarifying the education mission of the FIM, simplifying the organisation of education activities (seminars, training camps, internal formation) and creating a framework that defines roles and responsibilities of all parties involved.

Amendments to Codes: Revisions to the Statutes and By-Laws were voted on (submitted to approval by the GA).

Commissions: the following adjustments to the composition of the Commissions were agreed by the Board:

  • CJI – Member, Mr Santiago PUIG VILADOMIU, Spain (RFME). This candidature would be submitted to the GA for approval
  • CAP – Member, Mr Maksym SITNICKI (FMU)

In addition, the Board ratified the retirement of Mr John CHATTERTON-ROSS (ACU) at the end of August 2020 from the CAP and the resignation of Mr Michael WEISS (DMSB) from the CTL.

In addition, the CONU Presidents then reported to the Board on the latest developments on their continents. The Board Committees and the departments of the Administration presented the progress of their projects.

Monster Energy Supercross Set to Resume Racing in Salt Lake City on May 31
Seven Made-For-TV Races without Fans Airing on NBC & NBCSN will aid in Getting the Industry Back to Work.

The FIM, the promoter Feld Entertainment, Inc. and the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) announced today that the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, will resume racing at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah on May 31 and will run through June 21. The final seven, made-for-tv races will be broadcast on NBC networks without fans in attendance. The Utah Sports Commission, a longtime partner of Supercross, has coordinated its return to Utah.

Like all forms of sports, the Monster Energy Supercross Championship was abruptly halted in early March after completing ten rounds of the 17-round Championship. The last race was held on March 7 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla. where Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac earned his fifth win of the season over top rival Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen, both of whom are competing for their first premiere class title with only three points of separation.  

The sports industry in the United States, like virtually all industries, is being severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Monster Energy Supercross fuels an entire industry and is the primary source of income for thousands, including competitors. With no events, the industry is in severe economic peril. It’s important to the economic infrastructure to get back-to-work. Unlike other professional sports with guaranteed contracts, Supercross athletes, team personnel and many others involved in event and television production are independent contractors.
"We're excited to continue our work with Feld Entertainment, Rice-Eccles Stadium at the University of Utah, and the Utah Department of Health Services. Their continued support along with Utah's Governor Gary R. Herbert, have made it possible for Supercross’ return to Utah," said Jeff Robbins, President and CEO, Utah Sports Commission. "We also look forward to showcasing Utah worldwide via Supercross' global footprint."

The responsible return to racing will provide guidelines and protocols to competitors and essential staff that complies with all federal, state and local health guidance and mandates. Mitigation efforts include mandated pre-screening, testing, temperature checks, face masks, increased sanitation efforts and social distancing to limit contact among individuals executing the events. The stadium will assist with the implementation and execution of our plan. Supercross, in partnership with the Alpinestars Medical Unit, has a trained medical team of 7 professionals to assist on site.

The racing format has been adjusted to reduce the number of athletes to stay within the minimum requirements and a standard race format will be used for all seven rounds, except for the finale which will be an Eastern/Western Regional 250SX Class Showdown.       

Supercross Race Format for Final Seven Rounds:
450SX Class - 40 Riders based on current point standings and 2020 top 100 number or combined season qualifying results
250SX Class - 40 Riders based on current point standings and 2020 top 100 number or combined season qualifying results

Two qualifying sessions will be held for gate pick
250SX Class – Two Heat Races and a Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ)
450SX Class - Two Heat Races and a Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ)
250SX Class Main Event
450SX Class Main Event  

In the final seven races, three champions will be crowned – one in the 450SX Class and two in the 250SX Eastern and Western Regional Classes. It is the hope of the series that the final seven races will start to bring some normalcy to race fans by creating memorable experiences through the live television broadcast that continue to bring people together via a shared experience while also uplifting the human spirit, as all forms of sport do.

Supercross athletes have little to no contact as riders race solo against other competitors and wear several protective elements – full-face helmets that cover the mouth, goggles, gloves, jerseys and pants that leave little to no skin exposed, plus fully secured knee-high boots.

Supercross partners Oakley, Toyota and VP Racing Fuels have been lending their expertise to the medical community and first responders by developing and mass-producing protective shields, eyewear and hand sanitizer. This type of expertise that exists within the industry, coupled with Utah’s leadership and Feld Entertainment’s live event experience will all factor in to helping the industry get back to racing while aiding in the recovery and healing process nationwide.

FIM Grand Prix World Championship

Decision of the Grand Prix Commission

The Grand Prix Commission, composed of Messrs. Carmelo Ezpeleta (Dorna, Chairman), Paul Duparc (FIM), Herve Poncharal (IRTA) and Takanao Tsubouchi (MSMA), in the presence of Jorge Viegas (FIM President), Corrado Cecchinelli (Director of Technology) Carlos Ezpeleta (Dorna) and Mike Trimby (IRTA, Secretary of the meeting), in an electronic meeting held on 15th April 2020, made the following decisions:

Technical Regulations

In view of the Covid-19 global crisis, and following various conversations with manufacturers and teams in all classes, the GPC has approved the following technical proposals.

These are all aimed at reducing costs globally in all three classes for both manufacturers and teams, whilst maintaining fairness and equality in order to conserve both the entertainment value of the sport and the integrity of the competition.

MOTOGP CLASS:

Currently, all manufacturers that don’t qualify for concessions have to homologate an engine specification for the whole season. Manufacturers are allowed to homologate a different specification for riders in Independent teams.

Until now, manufacturers with concessions didn’t have this limitation and could change specification during the year.

In addition, all manufacturers were allowed two aero body designs per rider per season; the one they started with at Qatar plus one upgrade.

The GPC has approved the following changes, effective immediately:

2020 SEASON:

There will be no update of any homologated parts during the 2020 season. This applies to all manufacturers, both Non-Concession and Concession.

2021 SEASON:

Both Non-Concession and Concession manufacturers must start the 2021 season using March 2020 homologated parts. Thereafter, normal upgrade regulations will apply for the rest of the 2021 season as per current regulations meaning no engine evolution for non-concession manufacturers and only one aero-body update per rider for all manufacturers.

For the first event of 2021 riders will be allowed to choose between any engine or aero-body specification that the manufacturer homologated in 2020. 11 ROUTE DE SUISSE CH – 1295 MIES FOUNDED 1904 TEL +41 22 950 95 00 FAX +41 22 950 95 01 info@fim.ch WWW.FIM-LIVE.COM

MOTO2 CLASS:

The organisers supply all Moto2 Class riders with equal Triumph 765cc engines.

Until now, the only limitation in terms of allocations of technical parts was the allowance of one upgrade to the Aero Body per manufacturer.

The GPC has approved the following changes, effective immediately:

AERO BODY:

The current 2020 Aero Bodies as homologated by the chassis manufacturers at the 2020 Qatar GP, plus any version homologated in 2019, will be frozen until the end of the 2021 season. No further upgrades are permitted.

FRAME AND SWINGARM:

Each chassis manufacturer may submit any current or previously used frame or swingarm for homologation. These designs will be frozen until the end of the 2021 season, with no further specifications permitted.

Each Team will then be required to declare a maximum of 2 specifications of frame and swingarm per rider from their chassis manufacturer homologation list. Any replacement or substitute rider will be required to use only the declared parts for the rider they are replacing.

MOTO3 CLASS:

Currently in the Moto3 class, the manufacturers must provide all their riders with the same full bike. Until now, riders were allowed to choose 2 gear ratios per season.

The GPC has approved the following changes effective immediately:

Bike specification, as declared by each manufacturer at the Qatar GP 2020, will be frozen for the 2020 and the 2021 seasons, meaning no further upgrades will be permitted on any listed performance parts, chassis, swingarm, engine, aero body, gearbox or throttle body.

The GPC has also approved the number of engines each rider is allowed to use with respect to possible revised calendars for both 2020 and 2021. These will be published within the revised regulations.

MOTO2 AND MOTO3 CLASSES:

RIDE HEIGHT DEVICES BANNED

Ride height devices, to aid the rider during the start of the race, are permitted within the current rules for MotoGP. However, due to possible high development cost that these devices could require, it is felt that this technology does not fit within the ethos of both Moto3 and Moto2 of a cost-effective championship. Therefore, the such technology is banned for these two categories, with immediate effect.

The use of any device that modifies or adjusts the motorcycle’s ride height while it is moving is forbidden.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the Argentina GP has been postponed

The FIM, IRTA and Dorna Sports regret to announce the postponement of the Gran Premio Motul de la Republica Argentina, which was set to take place from the 17th to the 19th of April.

FIM Ride Green Team

 

Two times FIM Cross Country Rallies World Champion Pablo Quintanilla is the latest rider to be inducted as an FIM Ride Green Ambassador and will join Takahisa Fujinami, Greg Hancock, Marc Márquez, Randy de Puniet, Alex Salvini and Laia Sanz in working for future generations by promoting a culture of sustainability in the day-to-day practice of sport and in everyday life.

Multi FIM MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez was the first ambassador to be appointed when the programme began back in 2012. Since then further ambassadors have been added to the programme who represent different genders and cultures, motorcycling disciplines and geographical areas, this diverse team of top riders lend their voices to convey the FIM’s sustainability policy and help to safeguard the future of the sport.

Chilean born Quintanilla, who before switching disciplines in 2012 was a thirteen times national motocross champion has the worthy pedigree to join his peers in this important mission, that puts top athletes at the service of humanity and the future generations. Along with the other FIM Ride Green Ambassadors, Pablo has been invited by the FIM to be a leader and play a major role in the contribution made by our sport to a greener and more sustainable World.

A regular competitor in the Dakar and other rally events in more recent years, which are hosted in some of the most beautiful and natural locations on the planet, Quintanilla is fully aware of the importance of the campaign for sustainable sport, and such is ready to accept his mission as a FIM Ride Green Ambassador, which will include:  Representing the FIM in environmental activities; Supporting the campaign through social media; Be the FIM Voice for the Ride Green Campaign.

Pablo recognises that the voices of the Ambassadors are a powerful force that can captivate millions of fans. Sport represents a very valuable vehicle for the promotion of attitudes that are simple to adopt but represent a major contribution to the crisis and to mitigating climate change.

Speaking about his new role Pablo Quintanilla explained: “I am very happy to have been appointed as an FIM Ride Green Ambassador. It is an honour for me to join this great team of riders who are committed to protecting the environment and respecting the natural landscape in which we compete."

“Our sport is beautiful and a big challenge at the same time. The motorcycle connects us to nature and allows us to realise just how important it is to preserve it around the World.

Katia Juarez, Director of the FIM International Sustainability Commission added her comment: “Today we are very proud to welcome Pablo Quintanilla to help us raise awareness in Latin America, a continent that is very active in motorcycling. After eight years working with the Ride Green Team across all disciplines and Continents we can confirm that greater awareness has been achieved in our community through the work done by these fantastic athletes. Thanks to Pablo’s popularity and motivation to help protect the nature, we can expect to see still more inspiration amongst our fans thanks to the messages conveyed by these exceptional riders.”

This meeting creates a unique opportunity for the commission members to meet and share ideas with their colleagues and with the FIM Board of Directors, the FIM Administration plus the FIM World Championship Promoters.

Diverse and different, but fundamentally linked aspects of the FIM’s core activities were addressed in the Plenary Session, which also showcased the Commissions’ activities. Following on from last year’s new initiative, FIM President Jorge Viegas again invited the FIM World Championship Promoters to join the Plenary Session. Each Commission Director and Promoter explained the main changes, projects and challenges for the year to come and the near future.

As part of the ongoing directive to open the FIM to the outside World, the FIM President welcomed international media from different disciplines, with representatives from Germany, Great Britain, France, Italy and Sweden to attend the Plenary Session for the first time.

In the framework of this Conference, the FIM Technical Commission hosted its first workshop, which was open to all FIM Family members and the international media in attendance. This event was headlined by three guest speakers – those being Jean-Philippe Cappelle - Michelin Competition 2 wheels Tyre Developer; Franco Gatto – Dainese D|air® System Coordinator and Professor Matteo Massaro – University of Padova who covered a wide range of engaging topics from their specialist spheres.

Over the weekend the various FIM Commissions conducted their own meetings to work on 2020 projects and activities. Everyone’s efforts and hard work over the two days were recognised and rewarded as the FIM Family as a whole enjoyed a cocktail and get together for a party at the FIM headquarters on Saturday evening.

Expressing his satisfaction, the FIM President Jorge Viegas said:  “The FIM depends on the Commissions and their expertise to deliver its events and its programmes. The Conference of the FIM Commissions is a key opportunity to meet their members and Directors as the year’s activities gear up. This event is also about thanking and rewarding the volunteers for their dedication and service to the FIM. Since last year I have welcomed the FIM World Championship promoters to participate in the plenary session. For the very first time, we have also invited international media from various disciplines to join the session so they could meet the people behind the scene of motorcycling. I will repeat this invitation in the future. One of my important wishes is to open the FIM to the outside world.”

FIM Superbike & Supersport World Championships

Changes to the Regulations for 2020

The Superbike Commission composed of Messrs Gregorio Lavilla (WorldSBK Sporting & Organization Executive Director), Takanao Tsubouchi (MSMA Representative) and Franck Vayssié (FIM CCR Director) in the presence of Mr Paul Duparc (FIM CCR Coordinator and secretary of this meeting) met in the Dorna Headquarters, in Madrid, on 27 November 2019.

The Superbike Commission made the following changes for the 2020 FIM Superbike & Supersports World Championships Regulations:

Sporting Regulations

Sporting and Disciplinary Regulations – Effective Season 2020

Various clarifications in order to simplify the rules and to adapt them to decisions taken during the season were adopted. The most emblematic decisions were as follows:

Track limits on the last lap of the race

Any excursions of track limits on the last lap of the race that may have affected a race result must indicate that the rider in question was disadvantaged. If the FIM Stewards panel decide that there is no clear disadvantage, the rider will be penalised with a change of position or a time penalty.

Black Flag with Orange Disk

In harmonisation with the EWC and GP Regulations, riders who are required to leave the track by display of this flag must be authorised by an official to re-join the track.

Helmets

The Commission reminded everyone that the new standards established by the FIM for all circuit racing disciplines managed by the FIM. This means that the single enhanced standard for helmets, (replacing the various national standards used before) will be applied for the Supersport riders in 2020.

Materials Used in "Sliders"

Some riders use knee sliders to which had been added metal studs. The sparks generated could disturb the following riders.

The current regulations limit the use to a hand carried generator with a maximum output of 2 kw. Current practice is for generators to be incorporated into a service cart with toolboxes, spare wheels and other equipment. If generator/equipment cart, trolleys and airblowers must be removed from the grid as soon as the board "3 Minutes" is presented, for organisational reasons, it was clarified that these generators, must have been disconnected prior the board "3 Minutes" is shown.

Sporting Monte-Carlo ready to
host FIM General Assembly & FIM Awards

 
This coming weekend will see the largest gathering of the year of the motorcycling family. The FIM General Assembly and FIM Awards take place on Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December respectively at the Sporting Monte-Carlo venue. As has now become the tradition, the annual season closing event again promises to be the most glamourous occasion in the FIM international calendar.

Ahead of the glittering main ceremony on Sunday evening, delegates from the one hundred and eleven national federations will first gather for Saturday’s FIM General Assembly with a packed programme planned where the representatives will be asked to vote on a number of important and different matters.

After a day of intense business, the motorcycling family will then turn their attentions to the FIM Awards which again will provide a unique  moment to recognise and reward the exploits and achievements of all our heroes and heroines and officially crown these 2019 FIM World Champions from a wide range of different disciplines.

Speaking ahead of this weekend FIM President Jorge Viegas said: “It is always moving to see our champions standing shoulder-to-shoulder on stage with the individuals and organisations that protect and promote motorcycling activity around the World, and who nurture the sporting heroes of the future!”
 
 “At a time when the FIM is focusing on sustainability and creating championships to develop new talent and future World Champions, it seems the perfect moment to be hosting the FIM Awards again inside this inspiring city.”

 “It will be with immense pride that we welcome our many FIM Champions both individual and team – some new and some returning – who through their incredible skill and bravery continue to increase audiences both at the events and via the amazing TV coverage the various disciplines enjoy.”

 “Alongside our sporting heroes and heroines and their successes, the FIM will be equally proud to recognise the many Road Safety, Sustainability, Women in Motorcycling and Future Stars projects and initiatives that have taken place in 2019 and celebrating those that won this year’s FIM Awards.”

 “Finally, with everyone from the FIM family all gathered together in one place, it will be an ideal occasion to also applaud and reward those individuals who contribute so much, but who are usually less visible.”
