2014 MotoGP Testing Regulations Announced by the Grand Prix Commission
The meeting addressed the testing procedures for the manufacturers, as follows. Factories can choose one circuit at which they can test the newly-developed technologies with their contracted riders. By "contracted" the GPC means "factory riders". Up to 5 days of such private testing will be allowed during the season.
Following the new leasing programs from manufacturers (Honda and Yamaha so far), the Grand Prix Commission also had to update the entries regulations. Manufacturers (MSMA) can make two "Factory" entries (2 riders) for their own team, and can lease factory-specced machinery to another team, for two additional entries, namely the satellite ones.
The modified rule specifies officially that the manufacturers are now allowed to lease their machines for additional entries, but they will automatically become non-MSMA, or CRT, as they have formerly been known as.
Finally, the wildcard appearance in the Japanese Grand Prix for Katsuyuki Nakasuga was approved. A long-time Yamaha rider, Nakasuga's MotoGP debut was in 2011 in the Malaysian GP.
