The 2014 FIM Superbike & Supersport World Championship and Superstock 1000cc Cup Regulations were approved by the Commission. The Sporting Rules will be as similar as possible to the 2014 GP Regulations. The Technical Regulations were also accepted. Some minor details are still to be reviewed and the complete regulations will be available on the FIM website shortly.

A long discussion took place between the members to review the homologation procedure for 2015, especially to review the minimum number of machines to be produced by a manufacturer for the purposes of homologation and to fix the maximum retail price for a model to be homologated. For the next season, the time-schedule of an entire SBK event will be as follows:

Friday:
10.00 – 10.45 / 45’ / SUPERSPORT FREE PRACTICE 1
11.00 - 11.30 / 30’ / SUPERSTOCK 1000 FREE PRACTICE 1
