The best overtakers at Misano, according to Brembo


 At Misano, the shape of the track means the answer isn't the same as Mugello


During the Italian GP at the Autodromo del Mugello last June, Andrea Dovizioso was ranked first in Brembo's special classification of the best overtakers.

But, this weekend at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, the new track surface s​​huffled the cards also in terms of the riders' ability to overtake, which led to a very different answer.

According to data supplied by Brembo, on the longest and most challenging braking section at the end of the straight that leads to the Quercia curve, the bikes go from a maximum speed of 183 mph to 51 mph in dry conditions.

They pull this maneuver off in 4.5​ seconds, applying a load of 10.8 ​lbs on the lever and traveling 699 feet.

During this delicate stage, the carbon brake discs reach a temperature of about 1,202°F.



The data recorded via telemetry for the respective teams throughout the course of the race weekend is collected by Brembo engineers, who supply their products to 100% of the MotoGP riders.

The data is then analyzed by means of a complex mathematical model that takes different technical parameters into consideration, including: braking point, peak deceleration, maximum pressure applied to the brake lever, braking time, and much more.

By combining this data, it is possible to determine the ranking of the best overtakers or the riders who begin to brake closest to the apex.
