MotoGP: CRT Regulations Dropped Officially

The CRT rules officially dropped 1 photo
As it was reported earlier this year, the FIM intended to drop the Claim Rule Team restrictions, and this finally happened officially. The claiming rule will no longer be part of the effective as of the 2014 season, and becomes actual for the teams currently using Magneti Marelli ECUs: Forward Racing, Avintia Blusens, PBM’s Michael Laverty, CAME Ioda Racing.

Introduced in the past to deter the potential entries from factories disguised as private teams, the claiming rule is no longer relevant as the distinction will be made upon the ECU used.

Spec hardware will be mandatory from 2014, and those running their own software get 5 engines and 20 liters of fuel, whereas the teams running with Marelli software get 12 engines an 24 liters.

Factory and satellite teams are to become MSMA entries, while the rest are non-MSMA, with the Grand Prix Commission having the last word in class entries. We're eager to have a clearer explanation of how things will work in the future and which criteria will differentiate between the factory/ satellite/ MSMA and the rest. And of course, we'll bring you the news as soon as it surfaces.
