4 quintals more than Assen
Extending over 3.933 km (2.4444 mi), the circuit has 15 turns and on 11 of these, the Superbike riders use their brakes for just under 30.5 seconds per lap. This is the record value in the first half of the championship. The total value of decelerations that the riders face is also a record: 12.1 G per lap compared with 8.7 G at Donington Park.
The pressure exerted on the brake lever is also high: half a quintal per lap per rider which amounts to 1.2 tons from the start to the checkered flag. This is 4 quintals more than Assen and, together with the heat, will be very challenging for the riders.
