Ducati Prior to the Czech Moto GP

The Brno motorcycle circuit is one of the gems of motorcycle circuit racing worldwide. It runs among the hills which border the second city of the Czech Republic. Earlier, the Grand Prix was held on the precarious and out-dated circuit whose replacement the Brno circuit really is. The previous track was a favourite among the riders and that the Brno track retains some of the characteristics from it makes it popular with the riders still. Speedy direction changes, elevation changes and chicanes feature in its fast paced and diverse design, with the track breadth as much as 15 metres in some parts.

Things required for this track are a good rider, a durable and good tyre and an impeccable set-up of the bike being ridden. These are in account of the many downhill areas that require braking. The excess width of the tracks affords a racing line that is precise. The engine performance must also be up to date given the stretches of straights.

The second half of MotoGP World Championship situated on these tracks follows the passing summer break. The Ducati Marlboro Team shall be the event this week.

Casey Stoner has picked up some satisfactorily positive points in the way of his form run, post taking podium finishes in his previous four races. Meanwhile, Nicky Hayden would also be looking to attaining his full form by extracting as much as he from the Desmosedici at the Brno circuit, which has always been best suited for this specific purpose.

The Team Ducati Marlboro has attained successes on this track on a couple of previous occasions, other than 2 pole positions and 2 podium wins. The team also intends to stay post the last race test-session this year.
