MotoGP™ tests new radio communication systems in Jerez

MotoGP™ is no stranger to innovation, and as the riders, teams and factories headed out with their own testing to work on at Jerez, the sport also debuted the next phase of a long-term project aiming to establish radio communication with riders whilst they’re out on track. At this stage, the project is focused on further improving communication between race control and the riders out on track, using pre-recorded messages sent via a one-way system to riders. But the riders weren’t very happy with the first system, they felt uncomfortable with it and the level of noise. There also has to be communication with the rider themselves, not the bike, from race control. Some riders have tried it already and feel comfortable, so during the test we sent pre-recorded radio messages. It should be quite advanced in terms of information and when to communicate information to the riders. It’s a one-way system at the moment, and all the riders agree it’s positive in principle.
