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 3 times, most recently in 2017.
Since 1993, the year the race was named the Czech Grand Prix, the bikes with Brembo brakes have won all 26 editions in the 500 cc - MotoGP classes.
