Novem­ber 12 Track length 2.49 miles Top speed 208.7mph Av­er­age speed 97.5mph Cir­cuit record 1m 31.171s (Lorenzo) 2016 podium Lorenzo, Mar­quez, Ian­none Most wins Lorenzo (4) MCN’S tip for the win Viñales

Could we see the 2017 ti­tle go right down to the wire come the fi­nal round in Va­len­cia? Given that only 10 points sep­a­rate the top four af­ter nine races, it’s an ab­so­lute pos­si­bil­ity and one that fans will rel­ish. The only left-handed cir­cuit on the cal­en­dar where Mar­quez can’t claim com­plete dom­i­nance, the Va­len­cia track has tra­di­tion­ally favoured the Yamaha of Jorge Lorenzo. And, with Viñales’ pace on the bike this year noth­ing short of ex­cep­tional, woe be­tide the racer who goes into the fi­nal round need­ing to beat him to win a ti­tle!
