The FIM and Dorna WSBK Organization wish to inform that the updated version of the FIM Superbike & Supersport World Championships, and FIM Superstock 1000 cc Cup Regulations is available HERE
a) For safety reasons, upon the request of the WSBK and WSS Teams, a change has been made to the tyre supply rules (Technical Regulations, art. 2.4.7 for WSBK and 2.5.7 for WSS); the most significant update is clarified as follows, for your convenience:
For both Superbike races and for the Supersport race only, Wet and Intermediate tires will not need to be marked with a tire sticker. They will not be considered in the total number of tires available for use, however normal allocation limits still apply.
b) Following Superbike Race 1 the intention to protest other riders for technical breaches only must be submitted within 15 minutes of the end of the race. For sporting protests the time limits remains as before. Below, an extract of the most important change within the regulations (Sporting Regulations, art. 1.28; Disciplinary Code, art. 3.4.3), for your convenience:
“(…) At the end of Superbike Race 1 (one) the machines will be allowed to return to their garages where, after control of the tyre stickers by the Technical Director or his approved staff, the wheels may be removed. Data may be downloaded, NO other work may be carried out until 15 minutes after the end of Superbike Race 1 (see art 3.4.3). The garage doors must remain fully open at all times during this period.(…)”
According with the WSBK Teams, following the meeting held in Phillip Island, Australia, during the first Round of the WSBK Championship last 21-23 February, the complete homologation rules are available HERE
