Asphalt re-laid at Estoril

Asphalt re-laid at Estoril

The Estoril Circuit has undergone some light modifications ahead of the World Championship's visit. The main changes have seen a relaying of asphalt on the first section of the track, in order to improve grip, and also at the ascending chicane.

This final tweak has changed the profile of the circuit enough to render previous records at the Portuguese track obsolete. The chicane's re-asphalting has improved safety for the riders, and Randy de Puniet was on hand before the initial practice sessions to talk to motogp.com about his opinions on the modifications.
