TECHNICAL REGULATIONS
Effective immediately:
There have been recent situations in which teams and riders have ignored the recommendations of the official tyre suppliers on issues such as tyre pressures. It is suspected that this has led to cases of abnormal degradation of tyres affecting the safety of the riders.
A new regulation has been approved which will compel teams and riders to use the tyres according to the parameters agreed by the Technical Director and the organisers in consultation with the official tyre suppliers.
The full text of the regulations may be viewed here.
Will they assign a jackboot armed with an air gauge to each team?

Statement on reduction in Moto2 race distance at Phillip Island given tyre concerns.
'Following a formal request from the Official tyre supplier for the Moto2™ class, Race Direction has taken the decision to adjust the race length for the Moto2 class for the Tissot Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, 2013, according to Article 1.17.2 of the FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix Regulations.

The decision was taken in consultation with the Official Moto2 tyre supplier in the interests of rider safety.

The full race distance will be 13 laps, full Championship points will be awarded.

Teams are also reminded of the update to Article 2.5.4.9 of the FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix Regulations. Tyres must be used within the parameters as advised by the Official tyre supplier and approved by the Technical Director. Usage parameters include tyre pressure and temperature.'

Nasty looking highside from Redding into the final turn, Moto2 qualifying. Looked as though he may have hurt a wrist or finger trying to save it. Otherwise seems okay.

Kallio and Corteze down also.

What a clusterfuck quali for Moto2.
Nasty crashes. Can't believe they allow tire barriers.
They should cancel the race if the tires are that bad.

Anyone notice Ana Carrasco qualified 7th in Moto 3?


I hope those crashers in Moto 2 are all OK.

Twitter is buzzing that the Bridgestones won't make race distance. Some are suggesting there will be a mandatory pit stop between lap 12 and 15 to change bikes.

^^ Bummer. That won't make it easy to challenge Espargaro from row four.

How lucky is Marquez. That could so easily have been him. Very similar looking crashes.

Or is it all class?
