For MotoGP, this is the second appointment of the season in Italy after Mugello back in May. In the last two years, Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli has hosted 4 GP races won by 4 different riders, but this year it’s once again home to one single race. According to the Brembo technicians who work closely with all the MotoGP World Championship riders, this is a moderately demanding circuit for the brakes.
On a difficulty index scale of 1 to 6, it earned a 4 , despite the absence of straight sections longer than 530 meters (580 yards) making it impossible to exceed 300 km/h (186 mph). This means multiple braking points, but only 3 of them call for a deceleration of at least 100 km/h (62 mph).
