Maximum force applied to breaks on the Haarbocht curve at TT circuit Assen 2018

Four weeks after the Isle of Man TT, MotoGP is getting ready to challenge its Tourist Trophy, but this one is on the TT Circuit Assen. The Dutch track is the only one to have hosted races since the founding of the World Championship and will play host to the 8th appointment in the 2018 World Championship from June 29th to 1st july. Dating back to 1925, the track has changed its configuration and length plenty of times. In 1992, it was at Assen that Mick Doohan’s right leg risked being amputated after he fell during a qualification lap and got trapped under his Honda. His limb was saved by Dr. Costa, but when he came back to win, credit went in large part to the thumb master cylinder Brembo engineers designed especially for him so he could activate the rear brake without using a pedal. Even though it has 18 corners, TT Circuit Assen is very drivable with lots of fast turns and only one that is tight. This track also stands out because the deceleration is lower than at others. The maximum speed doesn’t go over 310 km/h but the number of fast curves guarantees the braking systems can cool down with ease. There are very few problems at this track, but one involves weather conditions. In 2014, the MotoGP riders started off with steel brakes because of the rain, then halfway through the race the rain stopped and many changed to bikes with carbon brakes. But these brakes hadn’t been warmed up enough and some of the riders complained about problems in the first few braking sections.
