NEW MEANINGS OF “SURFACE” FLAGS

Further to the decision of the MotoGP Commission taken recently in Losail, It was also decided to clarify the information given to the riders participating in the FIM Superbike and Supersport World Championships. This simple decision has important and urgent consequences on all the other FIM Championships and on the management/training of flag marshals. Indeed, it is important that the marshals are familiar with and apply in the same way this new information given to the riders. This new signalling will be applied for the other FIM Circuit Racing Championships managed by the FIM (Endurance, Sidecar, JuniorGP, MotoE, Red Bull Rookies Cup, MiniGP World Series).

The Continental Federations were advised to also harmonise their rules with the FIM ones.

FIM will recommend this same harmonisation with the National Federations for their National Series.

The FIM CCR “flags” Regulations were amended as follows:

Flags and Lights Used to Provide Information:

(…) o Yellow and Red Striped Flag
The adhesion on this section of the track could be affected by any reason other than rain (oil, gravel, grass or other debris).
