  • MotoGP 2018 Grand Prix - San Marino and Rimini Coast GP

    "To kick off the last third of the MotoGP World Championship season is the San Marino and Rimini Coast GP scheduled for September 7 to 9 on the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. Located about 12 miles from Rimini and just over 1 mile from the Adriatic Sea, in 2012 the track was named for the Italian rider who tragically lost his life 7 years ago on the Sepang circuit. The Misano speedway was designed in 1969 and over the course of the years, has undergone numerous changes until it completed its current 4,226 meters configuration in 2008. The World Superbike Championship is also held on this track and although the Superbikes use the same track configuration, brake use is very different. The greatest difference is at the Curvone (turn 11) because the MotoGP riders are obligated to tap their brakes (1.3 seconds) in order to drop about 25 mph, while the Superbikes can take the corner at full throttle since they enter it at a lower speed."
