MotoGP : MotoGP Race distance to be shorten


MotoGP race distances to be shorten from 2018, with a two-year transition beginning this season before final changes come into force in 2019. This is to ensure that races have a similar duration at each venue on the World Championship calendar, enhancing event organisation and aiding television broadcasters to better structure race day programming.

The Americas GP, French GP, Catalan GP, Czech GP and San Marino GP will be one lap shorter, with the Spanish GP set to shorten by two laps and the Valencia GP by three. These changes are final.
These changes are due to limitations of regulations regarding engine and fuel usage.
In addition, there is a further update to the MotoGP regulations for 2018: if a Red Flag is shown after 75% or more of the race distance has been completed, the result will be declared. This does not change the existing regulations in Moto2 and Moto3 in which two thirds of the race distance must be completed in order to declare a final result, and is aimed at increasing safety for riders and fans.
