Description of the Race

A Grand Prix held over three days, with the first two for free trials and classification for each category. The third day is race day. There are free trial sessions on Friday and Saturday. Then on Saturday afternoon there is a single qualifying session for each category to establish the order on the grid for the race on Sunday, with the fastest drivers placed in pole position. In all three categories the three fastest drivers occupy the front line and the rest of the grid consists of three drivers per line.

Categories which make up the MotoGP World Championship:

Moto3™ – This is a new category which started in 2012, with 4-stroke, 250cc bikes and a single cylinder engine which replaces the 125cc category, for which the last race was in 2011. The minimum age to compete is 16.

Moto2™ – This new category with 4-stroke 600cc engines, has replaced the 250cc. Since 2010 Moto2 has been the new intermediate cylinder capacity, created to be a race which is both prestigious but also an economic support for the top MotoGP category. The prototypes have Hondo 600c 4-stroke engines with almost 140 horsepower. The minimum age to take part in this category is 16From 2019 onwards the Honda 600 cc. engine will be replaced by the Triumph three-cylinder 765 cc engine.

MotoGP™ – This is the ultimate event for top motorcycle riders. The maximum engine capacity in this category is 1000 cc (four-stroke engines) and the minimum age for drivers is 18 years. The bikes that compete in the MotoGP category have to be prototypes.

After the warm-up sessions for each category, the race programme traditionally starts with the lowest category, in this case Moto3, followed by Moto2 and finally the star category, MotoGP. However, this order can be subject to change. The races are run over a distance of between 100 and 120 km and normally last between 40 and 45 minutes, depending on the number of laps which is different for each race track. The pit stops are not usual but are allowed, and they are especially important in changeable weather conditions. This is when the drivers can enter the pit lane and change to a bike with the tyres of different specifications (only in MotoGP).
