Grand Prix of the Czech Republic rings the second half of the season in

The upcoming weekend marks the start of the second half of the 2017 campaign of the FIM Motorcycle World Championship after the four weeks summer break.

By this time it is impossible to imagine the Motorcycle World Championship race calendar without the “Monster Energy Grand České Republiky”. Since 1987 the MotoGP circus stops at the Automotodrom Brno, since 1930 they hold races in the city of Brno already.
Surrounded by hills and forest the circuit commands a great view on the track and a special atmosphere for the numerous fans who visit the race every year.

Also most of the riders enjoy racing on the fast and winding track with its many up- and downhill parts. On a length of 5.4 kilometres the track provides six left and eight right corners and a longest straight of 636 metres.

For Peugeot Motocycles SAXOPRINT pilot Jakub Kornfeil this weekend is an especially important one – it´s his home race. The experienced Czech lives only 70km and with that not even an hour away from the circuit.
Of course this motivates the team an extra bit – a good start into the second part of the season and additional points in the overall standing are targeted.
