What’s the “toughest” track in MotoGP?
Brembo Circuit Identity Cards for MotoGP are available to the public on the Friday before each race at Brembo.com.
Each Circuit Identity Card graphic includes general characteristics of the track itself (layout, length, number of braking events and turns, percentage of time spent under braking per lap), along with technical information of the key braking zones, such as speeds before/after each brake event, braking time and distance, maximum deceleration Gs experienced by the rider, et al.
In addition, each graphic includes commentary from race engineers and a rating of the circuit’s braking severity (hard-Japan, medium-Laguna Seca and light-Indianapolis). The web site also includes “The Best Brakings,” a new feature that illustrates MotoGP’s seven toughest braking zones based on five different parameters.
Attached is the Brembo Circuit Identity Card for this weekend’s Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix.
