MotoGP’s Game Changer: GPS Data Sharing Set to Revolutionize Racing Dynamics by 2027



GPS Sharing: "It's surprising that the manufacturers didn't catch this"

"The entire concept is about gaining an advantage over your rivals, not revealing your quicker route to them!" – Sharing GPS data will reveal secrets of MotoGP performance starting in 2027.

The most unexpected element in MotoGP's updated technical regulations for 2027, unveiled prior to Le Mans, involved the distribution of GPS data.

The use of GPS is prohibited for teams in MotoGP; however, the organizers install GPS devices on every motorcycle for their own media and promotional activities.

At present, squads engage in video analysis to decipher their competitors' advantages and disadvantages. They achieve this by superimposing footage of their own athletes onto the same sections of the track as their rivals.

Starting in 2027, this invaluable data, along with a wealth of other information, will be openly shared: "Following each session, GPS data from every rider will be accessible to every team."

This unlocks an entirely new realm of scrutiny for the teams, who will meticulously examine the data, allowing them to directly contrast racing trajectories, along with acceleration and braking effectiveness, with that of their own riders and motorcycles.

Jack Miller of KTM believes it would diminish a bit of the allure of MotoGP.

Miller expressed dissatisfaction, particularly with the 2027 regulations making GPS data accessible to everyone, questioning the necessity of such a measure.

Ultimately, motorcycle racing is about gaining an advantage over your rivals and keeping your speed-boosting strategies a secret!

"The beauty of the sport lies in its unpredictability."

"I wasn't really a fan of that one. It's puzzling to me how it got approved by the manufacturers, but somehow it did!"

Undoubtedly, this information will aid manufacturers who are facing challenges by pinpointing their specific areas of underperformance, more so than it will benefit those who are already leading in their industry.

However, it's likely that the five producers consented to share GPS data because they believe that the existing method of video review, which utilizes both stationary cameras positioned around the track and broadcast footage, ultimately fulfills the same purpose but requires significantly more time and resources.

Carlos Ezpeleta, Dorna's Chief Sporting Officer, mentioned that the GPS data will provide fans with significant insights.

"Ezpeleta mentioned, 'For several years now, we have been focusing on implementing GPS technology through the incorporation of new transponders in MotoGP that provide GPS data. This data is being utilized by Race Direction.'"

"In the next phase of our development, we aim to integrate it for manufacturers' usage. It’s crucial to note that this will always happen after each session, not in real time. Therefore, after every session, the organizers will provide all teams with the data from every rider."

"First and foremost, this will significantly enhance our GPS data quality. While we need to discuss the details with the makers, our aim is to introduce time differential GPS by the year 2027."

"This will notably aid the coordinators in aspects related to safety and examining accidents. Imagine understanding both the positioning and spacing of each cyclist and their bicycle. We believe this represents a significant improvement for the race management team as we progress."

"Furthermore, this will ultimately provide fans with considerable understanding regarding the various approaches taken in a chicane or corner, differing from one bike to another, and from one rider to another."

"I believe there's significant understanding to be gained about the delivery process, and manufacturers will have the opportunity to observe the diverse ways in which both bikes and riders are maneuvering."

"It's a significant endeavor, yet I believe it will be highly beneficial."

The additional changes for the 2027 season include: Downsizing engines from 1,000cc to 850cc, along with a decrease in cylinder bore size to 75mm. Teams will also have one fewer engine swap available each season. There will be a decrease in the number of gearbox ratios. The use of ride-height adjustment mechanisms will be prohibited. Fuel storage capacity will see a reduction. The aerodynamic front width and nose size of the fairing will be decreased by 50mm. There will be standardization of the aerodynamics on the rear seat, and the fuel used must be 100% derived from sources other than oil refining.

Miller commented on the additional alterations, stating, "50mm won't make a significant difference in that [aero] area."

"It's great to observe that ride-height mechanisms have been removed. I believe that will lead to a positive adjustment. The shift to 850cc is also beneficial. Essentially, the magnificent circuits we visit are gradually becoming too cramped."

Spectators are increasingly distanced from the excitement as these motorcycles transform into high-speed projectiles, making the circuits seem too compact for their rapid pace.

"This will generate some fascinating concepts, and undeniably, revisiting the motorcycles from the original 800 series, they had an impressively cool vibe."

"Transformation is beneficial. As previously mentioned, it's positive to witness the removal of the devices. I believe that will be advantageous. And I would genuinely prefer to see aerodynamics eliminated."

Completely disappeared?

"Yes, I believe that's the case. At this stage, it seems like everyone's aerodynamics are exceptionally well-developed. However, it's clear that the red motorcycles still possess a strong setup. Yet, I'm convinced that our bikes, or those from Aprilia, don't lag behind in terms of performance."

"Riding motorcycles without winglets requires significantly more effort in controlling wheelies and effectively utilizing power. Now, with the addition of devices and winglets, it's less about brute force and more about precision and strategy."

"I also believe they detract from the bikes' aesthetics. After all, motorbike racing is meant to embody beauty."
