Brembo unveils the 2019 Argentina MotoGP

After a spectacular championship debut, #motogp is flying to South America for the Argentina GP that is being held from March 29 to 31 at the Autódromo de Termas de Rio Hondo.

Located in the province of Santiago del Estero in the north of Argentina, the circuit was designed by Italian Jarno Zaffelli. The brakes chosen by all of the teams and riders in the premium class are also Italian, #brembo naturally.

Every year, the Autódromo de Termas de Rio Hondo hosts dozens of car competitions so when the #motogp bikes land in Argentina, they are faced with a very dirty track. In the first free practice session of 2016, there was a great deal of sand on the asphalt and the lap times were recorded at 1’43’’-1’44’’. These times were reduced by more than three seconds less than 24 hours later and by another second in the Q2.

According to #brembo technicians, the Autódromo de Termas de Rio Hondo falls into the category of circuits that present a mid-level of difficulty on the brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it earned a 3 on the difficulty index, the same score given to nine other tracks including Losail, which hosted the season's inaugural race.
