When fall arrives, MotoGP will be moving to the Far East where four GPs will be held this year, including the Australian one. According to the Brembo technicians who work closely with all 24 premium class riders, Twin Ring Motegi is a very demanding circuit on the brakes. On a scale of 1 to 6, it is rated 6 on the difficulty index.
The MotoGPs use the road circuit which has only a few fast corners and many slow ones, interspersed with medium length straight sections: 7 of the corners are taken on by the bikes at less than 100 km/h (62.1 mph). It is the number of corners taken in 2nd gear that make it one of the most demanding on the brakes due to the difficulty in cooling the discs between one braking episode and another.
