Penalty points for dangerous riding in MotoGP from 2013

Dangerous and aggressive riding will be dealt with by a new penalty points system that will be introduced across all three classes in the MotoGP world championship from next season. Points will be awarded between one and 10 depending on the severity of the offence and if a rider accumulates 10 points then he is immediately banned for one race. Any rider...

From another viewpoint

I would like to think this system will be employed to enforce exsisting rules in a consistant way. If for example abusing a marshall is a 10 point penalty that would then be for everyone as for dangerous riding it is always open to speculation and debate with regards to intent and what penalty it deserves. For example when Sic and Ped collided at Silverstone some said no penalty other said one race ban so there will never be a one size fits all set of rules as it is all based on interpretation. Rider reputation seems to have as much influence on the penalty as the actual incident, admitedly some of these reputations are well deserved but not all so if this points system removes atleast an element of the inherent bias it can only be a good thing.

Awww - fuck off - one more reason to ditch motoGP and go watch the Northwest 200 or IOM TT / Manx GP

Ive just spent the last 2 days at Wanganui - - the only racing on boxing day - what a refreshing change to all this micro-managed shite.

What a boring fucking bunch of sterile empty twats. Corporate PC bollox gone fucking mad. Did anyone tell these fucking cunts you die at the end no matter what you do?

People here are seriously debating modeling bike racing on the F1 model ? Wha? you fucking mad ? The Billionaires merry-go-round where there's so many factors in a win the skill is buried in red tape? -

Seriously - if its too dangerous - stay home and mow the lawn.

Good choice of photo! Not sure they need to introduce a rule....but it's a safe bet it's probably devised to stop Marquez killing someone or himself next year. see if he racks up many points.
