New Track Configuration and New Time Schedule2016-06-03 05:48
As agreed with Luis Salom's family, the riders, teams and the Safety Commission, it has been decided that the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya is to go ahead.
In a Safety Commission meeting attended by Marc Marquez, Andrea Iannone, Pol Espargaro, Jack Miller, Bradley Smith, Alvaro Bautista, Aleix Espargaro, Andrea Dovizioso, Tito Rabat and Cal Crutchlow, it has been agreed to change the configuration of the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit to race for the remainder of the event on the F1 track configuration.
This layout was tested 2 years ago in an official MotoGP Test - back then this configuration wasn't elected for Grand Prix Racing as deemed less attractive and demanding in terms of sport than the one usually used.
As riders will have to deal with a new track configuration, practice time will be extended with a new schedule for Saturday (available to download, see button below).
