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 an electronic meeting held on 15 July 2019, made the following decision:

Technical Regulations –MotoGP CLASS

AERO BODY REGULATIONS

EFFECTIVE FROM THE FIRST EVENT OF 2020

After extensive consultation with all manufacturers participating in the MotoGP class the Grand Prix Commission has revised and updated all regulations concerning Aero Body designs. 

The new regulations address the “grey areas” of the previous regulations and also include, where appropriate, specific sections of the “Technical Director Aero Body Guidelines”.

The proposal was submitted by the Technical Director in consultation with the FIM and approval of the manufacturers and was therefore approved in its entirety by the Grand Prix Commission.

Manufacturers now have until the first event of 2020 to design their Aero Body components when the new regulations take effect.

The detailed regulations will be available to view shortly on the FIM website:
