EUROPEAN STOCKSPORT 300 CUP REGULATIONS
The following rules intended to permit limited changes to the homologated motorcycle in the interests of
safety and improved competition between various motorcycle concepts.
EVERYTHING THAT IS NOT AUTHORISED AND PRESCRIBED IN THIS RULES IS STRICTLY
FORBIDDEN
If a change to a part or system is not specifically allowed in any of the following articles, then it is
forbidden
The EUROPEAN STOCKSPORT 300 CUP is open to motorcycles derived from the series, with 4 stroke
engines for which the manufacturer (or importer) obtained from FIM-Europe an approval for this class.
As the name EUROPEAN STOCKSPORT 300 CUP implies, the motorcycles used are allowed limited
modifications.
All motorcycles must comply in every respect with all the requirements for Road Racing as specified in these
Technical Regulations, unless they are already equipped as such on the homologated model.
The appearance from the front, rear and the profile of EUROPEAN STOCKSPORT 300 CUP motorcycles
must (except when otherwise stated) conform to the homologated shape (as originally produced by the
manufacturer). The appearance of the exhaust system is excluded from this rule.
TR 1.1
MOTORCYCLE SPECIFICATIONS
All parts and systems not specifically mentioned in the following articles must remain as originally produced
by the manufacturer for the homologated motorcycle.
TR 1.2
ELIGIBLE MOTORCYCLES
The class will be based around the machines sold in Europe as A2 class motorcycles and excluding the A1
class motorcycles. The FIM Europe Road Racing Commission has the right to decide which motorcycles will
eligible in this class.
For 2017 the following motorcycles will be legal (this list can be amended at any time by the FIM Europe
Road Racing Commission):
•
Honda CBR 500 R products since the year 2012.
•
Kawasaki Ninja 300 R (EX 300 ADF) products from the year 2013.
•
Yamaha YZF-R3 products since the year 2015.
•
KTM RC 390 CUP products since the year 2015.
Except as expressly authorized by this Regulation and the approval files, motorcycles must remain as
originally produced by the manufacturer.
TR 1.3
MINIMUM WEIGHTS
The minimum weight of the motorcycle in running condition must be as follows:
•
Honda CBR 500 R
•
Kawasaki Ninja 300 R (EX 300 ADF)
140 kg
•
Yamaha YZF-R3
140 Kg
•
KTM RC390 CUP
136 Kg
150 kg
3 of 19
At any time of the event, the weight of the whole motorcycle (including the tank and its contents) must not be
lower than the minimum weight.
There is no tolerance on the minimum weight.
During the final inspection at the end of the race, the selected motorcycles will be weighted in the condition
they finished the race, and the established weight limit must be met in this condition. Nothing may be added
to the motorcycle. This includes all fluids.
During the practice and qualifying sessions, riders may be asked to submit their motorcycle to a weight
control. In all cases the rider must comply with this request.
The use of ballast is allowed to stay over the minimum weight limit and may be required due to the handicap
system. The use of ballast and weight handicap must be declared to the Chief Technical Steward at the
preliminary checks.
TR 1.4
NUMBER PLATES / STARTING NUMBERS
The background colours and figures (numbers) for EUROPEAN STOCKSPORT 300 CUP are recommended
as follows:
Number

The sizes for all the front numbers are:
The sizes for all the side numbers are:
Minimum height

Minimum stroke
Minimum space between numbers
20 mm
10 mm
Minimum height
100 mm
Minimum width

50 mm
15 mm
Minimum space between numbers
10 mm
The number must be clearly visible and in a good shape.
The allocated number & plate for the rider must be affixed on the motorcycle as follows:
• One on the front, either in the centre of the fairing or slightly off to one side.
• One, on each side of the motorcycle, the location for the number is on the lower rear portion of the
main fairing near the bottom.
• Numbers must be easily legible in a clear simple font and contrast strongly with the background
colour.
• Backgrounds must be of one single colour and must be clearly visible around all edges of the number
(including outline).
• Any outlines must be of a contrasting colour and the maximum width of the outline is 3 mm.
• Reflective or mirror type numbers are not permitted.
• Numbers cannot overlap.
In case of a dispute concerning the legibility of numbers, the decision of the Chief Technical Steward will be
final.
