2019 MotoGP season has reached its 14th round which is going to be held this weekend in Aragon. So far, we have seen some great action especially the last-lap battles in the recent races. Perhaps, we would get to witness something similar in the Aragon GP.

Here are 5 things you should know about the Aragon GP:

-This year will be the tenth edition of the Aragon Grand Prix.

-The Aragon circuit is the sixth Spanish track to host a round of the MotoGP World Championship, following on from Jerez, Montmeló, Montjuic, Jarama and Cheste.

-There are seven corners in which the speed drops below 85 km/h, while Turn 9 is the slowest of them all, with a speed of 72 km/h. Despite this, first gear is not used in any part of the circuit, except for the race start.

-MotorLand has a chicane similar to the one at Laguna Seca and for this reason, it is also known as the ‘Corkscrew’, due to the layout of the two corners and the drop between the highest point and the corner exit.

-The longest straight is the one behind the paddock; it measures 968 metres in length, and speeds of more than 340 km/h are recorded.
