Seven days after the Portugal Grand Prix, MotoGP leaves Europe and moves to Argentina. For the eighth time, racing will be held at Termas de Rio Hondo, a city on the banks of the River Dulce in the north-west of the country. Due to the clay soil that surrounds the circuit, the Autódromo de Termas de Rio Hondo has a very dirty track.
According to Brembo engineers, it is a track with a medium level of difficulty for brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it is rated 3 on the difficulty index. The circuit houses a museum with a Benetton B196 racing car on display which in 1996 won 10 podium positions in Formula 1, with the help of Brembo brakes.
