After a two-year break due to the pandemic, MotoGP returns to Thailand and like the two previous years will race at the Chang International Circuit. According to Brembo engineers, this is a very demanding circuit on brakes. On a scale of 1 to 6, it is rated 6 on the difficulty index.
The track has been designed by the German architect Hermann Tilke and is 410 km (255 mi) north of the capital Bangkok, at Buriram which in the local language means “town of happiness”. The track's layout alternates very long straights that end with a hard braking session with second and third gear curves where gaining the right pace is essential.
