2.8 TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS - SUPERMONO
2.8.1 Displacement capacities
Open to single cylinder motorcycles up to 800 cc.
Engines may operate on the four stroke principle only.
Engines must be naturally aspirated.
2.8.2 Minimum Weights
Supermono: Minimum weight 95 kg.
Ballast may be added to achieve the minimum weights, but it must be securely fixed
to
the frame.
In the final inspection at the end of the race, the machines chosen will be weighed
in the condition they finished the race. Nothing can be added to the machine
including water, oil, fuel or tyres.
A 1% tolerance in the weight of the machine at the post race control is accepted.
2.8.3 Number Plate
Racing numbers must be affixed to the front and the two sides of the motorcycle so
that they are clearly visible to the spectators and officials.
Number plates must be rectangular in shape with minimum measurements 285 mm x
235 mm (see diagram 0).
One plate must be fixed to the front inclined not more than 30o rearwards from the
vertical. The others must be placed, one on each side of the motorcycle. They must
be
fixed in such a manner as to be clearly visible and they must not be masked by any
part of the motorcycle or by the rider when seated in the driving position. Holes can
be
perforated between the numbers on a front number plate. However, under no
circumstances must the actual numbers be perforated.
In place of separate plates, a space of equivalent size in matt colours can be painted
or fixed on the bodywork or streamlining.
There must be a clear area around the numbers of at least 50 mm.
The background colours and figures for Supermono are black background with yellow
numbers. With the RAL colour table values being black 9005 and yellow being 1003
(See Art. 01.55).
In case of a dispute concerning the legibility of numbers, the decision of the
Technical
Steward will be final.
