Race week again!!
This time we are in Italy, on the Adriatic Sea coast (Rimini) at the Marco Simoncelli World Circuit, Again 2 races in a row will take place in a same circuit, and
we expect to achieve some new good results.

In order to host again the World motorcycle championship, the circuit was modified in 2006. The circuit direction was changed to clockwise direction, the track length was brought to 4.180 km (2.597 miles), track width has been widened to 14 m (46 ft), facilities were improved, and all security measures have been applied.
In 2012, the track was renamed to commemorate Marco Simoncelli. Simoncelli was born in nearby Cattolica and had lived from childhood in Coriano. On 8 June 2012 the track's new name was confirmed at the San Marino round of the Superbike World Championship.
