By totalmotorcycle TEAM $SUZUKI $ECSTAR READY FOR THE #GERMAN @MotoGP™
Team Suzuki Press Office – July 13
After the two-week break that followed the GP of Assen, Team SUZUKI ECSTAR is heading to Germany for the ninth round of the MotoGP™ season this weekend, on the same Sachsenring circuit that last year saw Maverick Viñales and Aleix Espargaró race with a special livery dedicated to the GSX-R’s 30th Anniversary.
The German circuit is a very unique one, with many corners on the left that will require a special attention to the set-up, and for a wise management of the tyres. Last year’s race was a fun one for the Team SUZUKI ECSTAR riders; the two GSX-RRs fought with each other in a spectacular duel until the very end of the race, finally scoring 10th and 11th places.
The history of the Sachsenring circuit is a recent one; initially born as a natural evolution of an open-road race track, it was completely renewed in 2001 to be capable to host bigger events. With a total length of 3.7 km (2.28 miles) and a 700 metre-long straight it is one of the slowest tracks of the championship, comprising only three right-hand corners and 10 left-hand corners.
