MotoAmerica Rules Package For 2020 Season

Changes To Both The Technical And Sporting Rules

COSTA MESA, CA (January 6, 2020) – MotoAmerica has announced that the AMA has issued the rules package for the 2020 MotoAmerica Series, the home of AMA Superbike Championship, with regulations that feature slight changes to both the sporting and technical rules.

Starting with the Superbike class, the changes are minimal and apply to both the engine and the chassis to further keep the rules in line with World Superbike regulations.

“We haven’t made many changes to the technical rules,” said MotoAmerica’s Chuck Aksland. “Our competitors appreciate having consistency in the rules without having numerous changes every year. The majority of our changes are just to move things even closer to the rules found in the World Championship. Also the chassis changes in the non-Superbike classes should make things easier for our teams and racers when they are forced to use their spare motorcycles.”

The changes to the electronic packages also trickle down to the Supersport and Junior Cup classes with World Supersport-spec ECUs now allowed in both.

The only other change of any substance is freeing up the fairing/bodywork rules in the Twins Cup class with front and rear fender designs now free with some limitations.

Additionally, the AMA will allow competitors in all classes except Superbike to now have a rolling chassis with airbox, etc. as the spare motorcycle. In Superbike, this doesn’t apply because each rider is already allowed a complete spare motorcycle.

As for the sporting regulation changes, those center around opening up testing regulations and with the adjustment of the way results are calculated if a race ends with a red flag.
