The action is back for lovers of Motorcycle World Championship. The world of MotoGP lands this weekend with him Shark Grand Prix de France, or what is the same, the French Grand Prix. It takes place on the legendary Le Mans circuit, the cradle of Motorsport and a special track loved by most drivers.
The Le Mans circuit was visited by the Motorcycle World Championship for the first time in 1969, when the most successful rider of all time, Giacomo Agostini, took victory in the premier class of that time, the 500 cc. Since 2000 this route has not missed any appointment.
In the technical part of the circuit, we talk about a track with 4.2 kilometers long and 13 meters wide. Its main straight measures 674 meters and ends in a very fast first corner that leads to a chicane. In total sum 16 curves, being 5 to the left and 9 to the right.
In addition, we must not forget that this weekend there are not only Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP, but also the electric MotoE will face each other.
The fastest lap time in the race for the premier class it is in the possession of a Spanish pilot, Maverick Viñales, who shot in 1: 32,309 in the 2017 race. Can the Yamaha man play a good role in this new appointment on the calendar? Will Marc Márquez find himself better on his Honda? Will Pedro Acosta thrill us again in the Moto3 category?
