The Superbike spotlights are already focusing on next season, with various changes coming into force in 2018. The Superbike Commission composed of Messrs Rezsö Bulcsu (FIM CCR Director), Takanao Tsubouchi (MSMA Representative), Steve Aeschlimann, Fabio Muner, Charles Hennekam, Scott Smart and Paul Duparc (FIM), in the presence of Messrs Daniel Carrera (WorldSBK Executive Director), Gregorio Lavilla (WorldSBK Sporting Department Director), in a meeting held in the FIM Headquarters in Mies, on 29 November, made the following changes for the 2018 MOTUL FIM Superbike & FIM Supersport World Championships Regulations.         

Here are the points in detail

Sporting and Disciplinary Regulations

- The time schedule of practices sessions and warm ups (time and duration) has been reviewed. Slight changes have been carried out to the Sporting rules mainly to clarify the Practice restrictions and the starting procedure.

- It was also clarified that any rider, having taken part in the qualifying practices (WorldSBK and WorldSSP) who failed to achieve a qualifying time within 107% of the fastest rider of his class, will start the race from the back of the grid.

- A start delay with a “quick start” procedure has been put in force.

- Taking into consideration that the penalty points were withdrawn from the list of penalties, a clarification and the definition of the penalties have been adopted.

Technical Regulations

- The Superbike Commission approved a number of clarifications and editorials with regards to the earlier introduced ‘REV limiter’, ‘Balancing calculator’ and the ‘Concession parts’ (with price capping, in order to provide availability to all parts and for all teams along with controlled pricing).

- The use of aerodynamic components (e.g. ‘wings’), would only be permitted if fitted on the homologated model sold in the Europe, Japan and North America.

- Furthermore, it was agreed that electronic suspension could not be used (even if present on the homologated model).

Medical Regulations

Various regulations improving the Medical Code have been decided. The SBK Commission included the SCAT5 (in accordance with the current Intl Consensus Statement of Concussion in sport). The alcohol testing procedure, in line with the one adopted in Grand Prix has been accepted.
