Learning About the MOTOGP Championship
Motorcycle Motocross is an offshoot form of motor-bike racing known as Motocross. Grand Prix motorcycle racing, more popularly known as Motocross, is the premier category of motorcycle road race events held on public road tracks specially sanctioned by the Féedration Internationale de Motocrosse. Motocross has been around for decades and several different sub-categories have emerged. The most famous is the Motocross bike racing which attracts a number of international spectators and participant. Some of the other popular types of Road Bikes that are used in this sport include the Motocross bike race, Motocross bike tour, GP Motocross race and Motocross classes for children. These tracks also vary in their design and appearance with some being long, narrow and straight while others are wide and uneven with tight curves and turns.
In spite of the short track and technical regulations, these events result in some amazing competitions and some of them have even won international gold and silver medals. In order to participate in the MOTOGP races, you need to adhere to all the technical regulations. The first requirement is that the motorcycle should be under the age of 12. Even though it might be advisable for parents to buy their children a motorcycle to start with, it is not always possible. The only exception to this rule is when a child is involved in a motocross race event and his parent is present with him. Otherwise, the child needs to be supervised at all times.
Another requirement is that all participants in the MOTOGP must abide to the road rules and regulations. They are required to wear a helmet, and there are strict rules about the use of hand and body gear. As far as possible, no one is allowed to ride with dangerous materials such as loose or sharp objects, petrol or paint thinner, aerosol cans or cigarette burns. Apart from this, there are also some other simple regulations regarding the use of motocross helmets.
On average, it takes about ten minutes for a motorcycle driver to complete one MOT. This includes all the procedures and meetings involved, and the motorcycle will then be inspected by an official inspector before it can race. It is possible to participate in the MOTOGP without having a completed bike, but this is not allowed by any means, as the MOT requires a complete bike. The inspector will carry out a wide-ranging inspection to check everything that might be deemed unsafe for riding a motorcycle.
After the inspection, a decision is made as to whether the motorcycle is eligible to take part in the MOTOCA Motocross Superstock Trophy. These are held annually, on the first weekend in April, and they allow professional motorcycle racers to show off their skills in front of the judges and fellow racers. There are two classifications in this championship: the Superstock class and the Open Class. For the Superstock category, motorcycles that are over fifteen years old are eligible, as well as those manufactured between fourteen and sixteen years of age. Superstock racers have to achieve a minimum lap time of thirty-two minutes and ten seconds, as well as being able to ride a Superstock bike at more than one hundred kilometers per hour.
There are many other categories available in the Superstock category that include British Touring Car Championship, European Touring Car Championship, World Cup Trophy and the World Performance Motorbike Rider’s Cup. Riders may compete for various titles, with the Superbike title becoming the most popular. There is also a Grand Prix class for those interested in competing in more prestigious international races. There are many different classifications available in the MottoCup, and anyone who meets the required criteria can become a certified MottoCup rider.
