Rules 2017

Please find a link to download the latest technical rules for MotoE. They have remained unchanged for the last 3 years, with minor refinements concerning safety.   However they will be updated for the 2018 season… if in doubt please call us, we are more than happy to clarify any questions you may have.

As we are a support class running with different promoters and sanctioning bodies these rules only apply to the “technical” aspects of your bike.   They work in conjunction with the host events rules and regulations.

These Technical Rules must be read in conjunction with the Supplementary Regulations specific for the venue and championship series and sporting rules of Host Federation. The Technical Rules, Sporting Rules and the Supplementary Regulations form part of the rules for racing with MotoE at every event.

Compliance with all rules and regulations is a condition of entry to MotoE. E&OE.

MotoE TCF – NEW TEAMS -Please click on the link for a word document outlining the basic technical construction information needed for your build. 

All new teams entering the series are required to complete a technical construction file.  The Technical Construction File (TCF) is a document that has been created by the IET Technical Panel with the sole purpose to allow The Panel to conduct pre event assessments on a team’s machine to help confirm that the team’s machine has been built in compliance with:

  • The MotoE 2017 Technical Rules
  • All relevant Race Regulations

All necessary steps have been taken to ensure that the machine has been designed to be as safe as it can be for the rider(s), team, spectators, officials and marshals.

It is the teams & riders’ responsibility to adhere to and conform to all rules and regulations that are in force from time to time as defined by the Participation Agreement.

The IET Technical Panel and its members are there to assist and advise on aspects of the technical configuration of the machines as submitted by the team and described by their Technical Configuration File. Their  role is to support teams by aiding them to comply with technical rules and regulations of the series.

The Panel are not responsible or liable for any violation of the technical rules and regulations by the team nor are they liable for any damage, sanction, or effect from failure of the team to comply to the Technical Rules & regulations.

The TCF WILL be treated with the strictest confidence between any Technical Panel Member and any MotoE’s employees or any agents specifically instructed to act on behalf of MotoE Limited that handles a TCF in anyway, are all bound by a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA). Absolutely under no circumstances will any information supplied in a Technical Construction File be shared outside such groups.

All TCF’s will be destroyed at the end of the season, once the series is over and/or any legal or appeal process have been exhausted or expired.

This document is designed to ensure adequate thought has been given to risk assessment and the safety features of your design.   You will be taking part in a competition with a level playing field, so coming across teams from universities and technical colleges as well as professional  factory teams.
