395 The record number of points achieved in the MotoGP class Constructors´ championship by Honda in 2003. A victory for any of the Ducati riders in Valencia will take Ducatis score in this years championship up to a new record score of 399.

100 Three riders are scheduled to make their 100th appearance in the MotoGP class at the Grand Prix in Valencia, having competed in every race since the four-stroke MotoGP formula was introduced at the start of 2002; Checa, Rossi and Shinya Nakano.

24 Aprilia have had twenty four Grand Prix victories so far in 2007 (11 x 250cc, 13 x 125cc) with two races still to contend. This is the highest number of wins ever achieved by Aprilia in a single season exceeding the previous best year of 23 wins in 2003.

17 Stoners victory in Malaysia was his 17th point scoring finish of the year, equalling the record for the number of point scoring finishes in a single season set by Colin Edwards in 2005.
