    Moto GP 2022

    Is it just me or are they actually getting more serious about poor riding and dishing out more penalties, doing things like minimum age going up etc? 2022 is going to be interesting. I'll be watching closely how they run qualifying first off, there's been a lot of comments on tactics versus risk there

    How about 200ml less gas allowance for each infringement?

    Disqualification sends a stern message.

    IOMTT used to have a petrol limit in the very early days.

    one round disqualification is good.
    But if every infraction meant your total fuel carry for the rest of the season reduced by XX ml I bet you would see a rapid improvement in rider behavior

    There was a fuel limit in MotoGP, it may have been relaxed. It resulted in big banks of fridges to keep the gas chilled, and bikes had insulating blankets over the tank while on the grid. I wondered at that latter cause their tanks tend to be more under the riders arse.

    Surely the consequences of running out at pace would make that risky, maybe the onboard data would take care of that. Back in the six hour days here we had gas tanks in the chiller at a pub down town feilding, I think at one race in a pukekohe three hour the gas expanded quicker than consumption and caused either an over flow or a split tank so the practice was stomped on.....

    I think it is currently 22l and was reduced a while back. Regulation of use is something they obsess over in the pits I believe.

    imagine starting the next season behind the eight ball from day one? The Formula one cars certainly know how to spend their time in the naughty corners it seems.

    I seem to recall reading somewhere that was how they sold it to "The powers that be" - along the lines of "No no, no - this is not a race. This is a reliability trial. We're using motorcycles (everyday, working man's transport at the time) and testing them in real world conditions for reliability and fuel consumption. That's why we need to use the road and why this island is perfect for it". "Oh, well, son, as long as it's not a race that will be fine!"
    I thought elections were decided by angry posts on social media. - F5 Dave

    I saw the rider fitness thing, it makes sense, but could be expanded with both minimum levels of damage to body to protect against some of the silly shit riders will try to do while injured. But also maximums, perhaps disallowing training regiemes such as gym work, running or other activities. Two pie minimum morning tea, and a kebab or fish and chips before the race. Following the race the manufacturers championship will be based on how much vino the team can comsume in 45minutes
