You might have heard of a track called A1 Ring in the late 1990s or early 2000s that hosted Formula 1 racing. This is that same track, which was purchased by Red Bull after falling into disrepair. After reopening in 2011 it began hosting F1 again, and for the 2016 calendar it’s a new circuit for MotoGP. This means learning new braking points, suspension setups, and data acquisition for all of the riders and teams. Cunning of Honda to have a bike like the RC213V-S, which in race trim is the closest to a modern MotoGP bike as a consumer can purchase. This means Pedrosa and Marquez can ride a new track gathering knowledge and track data, all on a streetbike!
