@Llary - seriously?

The purpose of the test is for the riders to take a brand new track for a serious "look-see" - what are the angles, corners, straights, run-offs, pit facilities and so on, all REALLY like. Not what the promoters or Dorna or the track owners or the marketing material says... but what is it really like from a riders perspective.

Probably the most critical aspect will be the data that Bridgestone will collect from all riders on the condition of the track based on telemetry data from the bikes as they ride. This will inform not just the teams, but will feed back into potential tyres appropriate to that specific track - which is what Bridgestone will hopefully bring.

In all - safe, fast and exciting racing... we all hope!
