The Brno circuit is famous because it was here that Valentino Rossi won his first race. It was August 18, 1996 and he was riding an Aprilia RS125 equipped with a two-piece Brembo front caliper with a radial mount and four small pistons. The caliper operated in conjunction with a Brembo carbon disc measuring 273 mm in diameter and a standard braking band.
At Brno, Rossi has won seven races, every time with Brembo brakes, while Marc Marquez has been victorious only twice, most recently in 2013. Since 1993, the year the race was named the Czech Grand Prix, the bikes with Brembo brakes have won all 24 editions in the 500 cc - MotoGP classes.
