In an effort to further cut costs, teams in all British Superbike classes will be limited to one bike per rider for the 2010 season but in the event of it being a write-off, parts can be used from another bike.
A statement from the MCRCB reads:
At each Championship event a rider may use only one motorcycle which will be marked and presented at Technical Control.
In the case of proven total wreckage the use of a replacement motorcycle is permitted once only during an event, however this must be constructed from sub assembled parts and authorised/verified by the Chief Technical Officer.
Sub-assembled parts means that no engine can be fitted into a frame. However typical assemblies that would normally be used to repair a crashed machine can be complete. Examples: handlebars, forks, foot pegs, front nose cone, front/rear sub-frame, swing arm and linkage assemblies are all considered acceptable.
The process of authorising the use of a new machine is not possible during a practice session or after the pit lane closes for the sighting lap of a race.
The organisers reserve the right to inspect any working area or vehicle within the controlled areas of the pits and paddock.
