Moto GP Season
The last Moto GP season consisted of 19 races and they took place throughout 37 weekends. In 2020, everything is different. This time, the stars have to drive 13 tracks in just 18 weeks, so the strain is going to be enormous. After the long break in the spring, the newly revised racing calendar was recently presented for the restart of this season. The fans were happy because it was not clear whether more races are going to happen this year. However, the anticipation is clouded by the expected loads. The completely overturned schedule will become a logistical, physical, and mental challenge for the teams. Are the participants ready for this?
Only 13 Races Left
This year, the world championship takes place with only 13 races. After 18 weeks of intense races, we are going to find out who will be the new MotoGP world champion. The exact scope of this season is not yet determined. However, the heads of the Moto GP will make the final decision by the end of July. The ambitious schedule of this Moto GP season is not the only challenge that the teams will face. The strict regulations make it necessary that only a fuselage team could be working. The units in the Moto3 and Moto2 classes may only take twelve members of a team to the respective races this time. At the Moto GP World Championship, five working teams can carry 45 people to the paddock, the special teams are allowed to have a crew of 25 people. A few very difficult months are ahead for all riders and team members who are involved in the Moto GP World Championship.
Strength of Man And Machine
This year, the Moto GP World Championship will happen without the audience, so all fans are going to watch the race at home. The short season also brings new tactical aspects to the fore. If a member or a rider is going to have even a small injury, they must leave the World Cup immediately. At the same time, a possible infection with the virus represents another challenge. All teams will live out of their suitcases for around five months and work day and night. The breaks they are going to need to relax are currently in short supply.
In the future, the teams will be permanently on tour and thus strengthen their sense of community. For this ambitious plan to work, it will be essential to change the logistics significantly. Also, there are a lot of problems with the worldwide supply chain. Therefore, it is crucial for the teams to provide spare parts including cladding and lintel parts. Once the season is in full swing, a break in the supply chain can quickly lead to many other problems. Besides, there are applicable travel restrictions that are still valid in other countries. As a result, the season of 2020 will be tough but it also offers the chance for a new start.
