Brno - track information
Grand Prix motorcycle racing started on the old Brno road circuit in 1965 with Mike Hailwood winning the first Czech Grand Prix on the 13.940 kms track, riding the MV Agusta. Like so may other road circuits, Brno was deemed too dangerous for grand prix racing in 1982, but already plans were being prepared to build a magnificent purpose built circuit in the hills above the city, which was famous for its beer and the manufacture of crystal glass.
The new 5.394 kms circuit was opened in 1987 with Australian Wayne Gardner winning the first 500cc grand prix, on route to his 500cc World title, riding for Honda. The circuit was slightly modified to it's present day 5.403 configuration in 1996 and most riders class the track as one their favourites, with it's undulations and mixture of corners.
Max Biaggi has the best record at the new circuit, winning four consecutive 250cc races starting in 1994 and three premier class grands prix in 1998, 2000 and 2002.
