MotoGP™ introduces new manufacturer concession system
The new system, along with a number of other proposals, has been approved by the Grand Prix Commission
MotoGP™ is introducing a new system of concessions for manufacturers, effective immediately as the test day allocation for the 2024 season begins on Tuesday the 28th of November.
Approved by the Grand Prix Commission ahead of the Valencia GP, the new system covers test days and riders, wildcard appearances, the number of engines, engine specifications and freezes, aero updates and the number of tyres supplied for testing. Factories will be classified into four groups – A, B, C or D – depending on the percentage of the possible maximum constructor points they have accrued in each window.
There are now two windows in which each factory’s performance is assessed: from the first event to the last event of the season AND from the first event after the summer test ban to the last event before the summer test ban of the following season. This allows factories to more quickly gain, or lose, their concessions based on their most recent form – ensuring competition in the world’s most exciting sport can stay as close as possible.
All manufacturers, via the MSMA, approved the proposal for the same reason. Find below the full details of the new system.
