GP Week : Issue 141
Moto GP news >> DORNA has proposed radical new restrictions for the MotoGP class for as soon as the year after next – with a control ECU and a limit on revs. The proposal was tabled at the GP Commission meeting at Valencia, and will be discussed over the next months. But the decision cannot be delayed, according to Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta. “By May next year, I want to finalise the technical regulations for 2013,” he told GPWEEK. “We opened the discussions yesterday, and I have discussed already with the manufacturers,” he said. He did not anticipate opposition from the factories. “ They understand the situation,” he said, adding that everybody needed to take the world economic position into account. The control ECU would cut costs because currently electronics are the biggest part of any team’s development budget. The rev limit would also extend engine life, further reducing expense; and would make the competition more even. The move follows similar design and electronic restrictions in F1.
