The Secret of Mugello Circuit

From ..

Mugello is one of the largest circuits on the MotoGP calendar, at 5,245 metres long. The Italian track has remained the same length and shape since its inception, with distinctive gradient changes and fast chicanes combining to make it a magnificent setting for motorsport. Although it has four such chicanes, the track is extremely fast. A firmer suspension is needed for the highspeed sections, but also flexibility is essential for traction on a series of slow corners. Finding the ideal suspension setting is difficult, at a circuit where an entrance to a corner rises and the exit descends. The front end needs to be completely under the rider s control, in particular during the downward turns. Also important is the high speed on the main straight, which requires a hard push on the brakes. Geometry plaFys an essential part in riding at Mugello. The
esses will quickly separate those with a balanced setting from those which are lacking, and is one of the keys to a fast lap in Italy. At a circuit as fast as Mugello, top speed is important. The main straight allows riders to reach speeds of over 300kmph. Tomorrow we offer you the opportunity to learn more about the track as we go OnBoard with Valentino Rossi, accompanied by commentary by the World Champion.
