Au­gust 27 Track length 3.67 miles Top speed 206.5mph Av­er­age speed 106.9mph Cir­cuit record 2m 01.941s (Pe­drosa) 2016 podium Viñales, Crutchlow, Rossi Most wins Lorenzo, Stoner (3) MCN’S tip for the win Viñales

The site of some of the se­ries’ great­est bat­tles, Sil­ver­stone was no ex­cep­tion in 2016. Per­haps not the best for track­side spec­tat­ing, it none­the­less cre­ates close rac­ing thanks to a lay­out that has a lit­tle some­thing for ev­ery­one, from fast straights to flow­ing cor­ners and first gear turns. It’s some­where that both Yamaha and Mav­er­ick Viñales go well at though, and he could get his ti­tle as­pi­ra­tions back on track here. And then, of course, there is last year’s podium man Cal Crutchlow who’ll be giv­ing it his all in front of his fans.

Can Cal give us some­thing to cheer about at Sil­ver­stone?
