Global Series Round 3: how to be fast at Misano

Situated close to the city of Rimini, the older version of the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli was a fixture on the MotoGP™ calendar until a career-ending crash for Wayne Rainey occurred here in 1993 – and there wasn’t another World Motorcycle Championship held for 13 years. One of three hardest breaking points on the track, corner 1 is a right-hander requiring second gear, however this is also the track’s first corner sequence. That turns the chicane into a triple and riders can take the final section one gear up in third. Hitting turn 4 is one of the longest braking corners and requires shifting all the way down to first gear. The following two right-hand turns will benefit from shifting to third gear, before preparing for Carro at corner 14, which means back to second gear, or even first if it seems necessary. The left turn of corner 15 can utilise second gear, so either stay in second or shift up from first.
