ASBK Rule Change: Front Brake Ducting


Superbike Teams have been advised that ASBK Management Team have provided the opportunity for Superbikes to be fitted with Front Brake Ducting prior to ASBK Round 4 – Darwin. This gives us a chance to see what new innovation ASBK teams can come up with!


Any such Front Brake Cooling Ducting fitted to a motorcycle MUST fit the criteria:

  • The purpose of the Front Brake Ducting is for the cooling of the front brake disc and caliper only
  • No aerodynamical advantage can be gained by the design or fitment of the Front Brake Ducting
  • Front Brake Cooling Ducting used must be commercially available
  • Front Brake Cooling Ducting used must be securely mounted to the motorcycle
  • Front Brake Cooling Ducting may be used at all 2022 ASBK events from Round 4 – 7
  • Front Brake Cooling Ducting selected must be approved by MA Technical Department prior to use at ASBK Round 4 – Darwin
  • Submission for approval to the Front Brake Cooling Ducting is to be made no later than 7 days prior to ASBK Round 4 – Darwin. Submissions should include full details of the duct and mounting
  • The final decision on Front Brake Cooling Ducting mounting, design, and/or aerodynamical advantage is at the discretion of the ASBK Management Team and ASBK Chief Technical Officer
