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), Hervé Poncharal (IRTA) and Biense Bierma (MSMA), assisted by Carlos Ezpeleta (Dorna), Mike Trimby (IRTA, Secretary of the meeting) and Corrado Cecchinelli (Director of Technology), in a meeting held in on the 4th of August 2023, made the following decisions.

MotoGP™ Class Sporting Regulations – Effective immediately

Clarification of entry to Q1/Q2 if MotoGP Practice is cancelled

MotoGP™ Practice is now the only session that determines entry to Q1 and Q2. In case this Practice session is cancelled on Friday afternoon, the Saturday morning MotoGP™ session will become Practice instead of Free Practice, and will determine entry to Q1 and Q2.

If it is not possible to run the Saturday morning session, then the results of FP1 will be used to determine entry to Q1 and Q2.

In the rare case that no practice sessions have been able to take place, this is deemed force majeure and Race Direction will adjust the schedule and procedure as required, considering the prevailing conditions.
