Technical Regulations

ENGINE USE MOTOGP CLASS – EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY

Currently, MotoGP regulations permit manufacturers in the MotoGP class to use a maximum of seven engines during the season. (Nine engines for manufacturers with concessions).

This regulation was established when the calendar comprised less than 20 races.

Because the 2022 calendar foresees 21 races it has been agreed to allow the use of one further engine providing that, ultimately, there are 19 races or more. The extra engine may only be used for the 19th. or subsequent races.

The regulations have been updated as follows:

Less than 21 races published on the official calendar that is issued by the FIM prior to the start of the first race:

• Manufacturers will have a maximum engine allocation of 7 engines (9 for manufacturers
with concessions).

21 or 22 races published on the calendar that is issued by the FIM prior to the start of the first race:

• Manufacturers will have a maximum engine allocation of 8 engines (10 for manufacturers
with concessions).

The use of this 8th (or 10th) engine will only be allowed starting from the 19th event
