More MotoGP testing will be permitted from the start of the 2012 season, it has been confirmed by the Grand Prix Commission. A unanimous decision to alter the regulations was made when the group met in Valencia on Saturday 5 November.
The Commission is made up of a selection of chief representatives in the sport, not least Carmelo Ezpeleta, Chairman of commercial rights holders Dorna, and Ignacio Verneda, the Executive Director for Sport of governing body the FIM.
In a statement released on Thursday, the Grand Prix Commission confirmed that it has ‘agreed that with effect from 2012 private testing of MotoGP class machines may be carried out by any rider, subject to a limit on the total number of tyres being supplied by the official MotoGP tyre supplier.’
It has also been announced that manufacturers are able to use any rider when completing their 2011 testing programmes. More details on all matters discussed will be revealed after the next Grand Prix Commission meeting in December.
