(Motorinformed.com) – From the 2022 season, the warm-ups in the Moto3 and Moto2 classes will be shortened to ten minutes. This will cut the route time on Sunday morning from the current 20 minutes by half. The MotoGP warm-up training will continue to be 20 minutes.

In the future, the warm-up of the small classes will only take 20 minutes
The original idea was to completely cancel the warm-ups in the small classes. The aim was to create a little more freedom on Sunday should the warm-ups have to be postponed due to weather conditions.
The teams didn’t want to lose this training entirely. Because if the motorcycle has to be rebuilt after a fall on Saturday, it also needs a check on the track. So they agreed on a compromise of ten minutes.
Significant changes have already been made from the 2023 season onwards. From then on, the minimum age in Moto2 and Moto3 will be increased from 16 to 18 years. The Moto3 field is limited to 30 permanent starters plus two wildcards from 2023.
