2021 Sporting Regulations update: wildcards permitted

The Grand Prix Commission, composed of Messrs. Carmelo Ezpeleta (Dorna, Chairman), Paul Duparc (FIM), Herve Poncharal (IRTA), Davide Brivio (Suzuki), Luigi Dalligna (Ducati), Romano Albesiano (Aprilia), Mike Leitner (KTM), Takeo Yokoyama (Honda) and Lin Jarvis (Yamaha), in the presence of Jorge Viegas (FIM President), Carlos Ezpeleta (Dorna), Mike Trimby (IRTA, Secretary of the meeting), Mike Webb (Race Director), Corrado Cecchinelli (Director of Technology), Jean-Paul Gombeaud (FIM Sporting Director) and Franck Vayssié (FIM CCR Director), in a meeting held in Portimao on 20th November 2020, made the following decisions for next season:. The Commission introduced into the regulations the current policy already being implemented by Race Direction. Riders passing a yellow flag in a practice session will have the time for that lap cancelled. (Note: it is also current practice that any security deposits that are forfeited go to a fund administered by the FIM for eventual use for good causes). The Commission decided that, due to the disruption caused to the calendar by the pandemic, no event would be declared as the Best Grand Prix.
