The San Marino GP is the 13th race in the MotoGP calendar. So far, we have had a fantastic 2019 season and we are hoping to see the thrill and exciting action in the upcoming race at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.
Here are 5 things you should know about the San Marino GP-
-The Misano circuit was renamed Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli in 2012.
-Since 2007 Misano has been the venue for the San Marino Grand Prix and it has a contract with MotoGP until 2021.
-The fastest race lap was set last year by Andrea Dovizioso in a time of 1’32.678 (164.1 km/h).
-The top speed at Misano also belongs to Dovizioso: 299.5 km/h (2015).
-The San Marino GP clearly does not take place within the territory of the tiny independent republic, but on Italian soil, because the circuit is about 20 km away from the country that gives its name to the race.
