This will be the 19th time that Misano has hosted a motorcycle grand prix event and below are some facts and stats related to the event:

  • Johann Zarco has twice finished on the podium at Misano: 2nd in the 125cc race in 2011 (when he also qualified on pole) and 3rd in the Moto2™ race last year. Since taking the lead in the Moto2™ championship standings with a win in Argentina, Zarco has increased his lead in the championship at each of the subsequent races.

  • Tom Luthi has had a single podium finish at the Misano circuit – 3rd in the Moto2™ race in 2010. Last year he finished fifth in the Moto2 race at Misano.

  • Mika Kallio qualified on pole for the Moto2™ race at Misano last year and finished second – his first podium finish at the Misano circuit.
