The for­mer A-1 Ring presents a mid-level dif­fi­culty for the brakes com­pared to other tracks. The hard­est brak­ing area is at the Re­mus Curve (Turn 2) where driv­ers take the turn at 316km/h be­fore slow­ing abruptly to un­der 70km/h – in a brak­ing area of just 146m. From the start­ing line to the che­quer, each driver ap­plies a to­tal load of 67 tonnes on the pedal, which is the nearly the to­tal weight of 400 KTM mo­tor­cy­cles.
