On the Sherry track, the asphalt was significantly updated after the latest MotoGP tests, which took place in November 2018. For this reason, the manufacturer Michelin has prepared additional rubber.

During the winter holidays, the owners of the road carried out repairs to eliminate the problems with defects that appeared after last year’s asphalt renovation.

In fact, Michelin offers riders a choice of four different front and rear tires instead of three.

Front tires: soft, medium, two solid (symmetrical design). The same set of rear tires, but the design is asymmetrical (the right side is harder), since there are eight right and only five left turns on the track.

Piero Taramasso said that the situation reminded him of the time Michelin returned to the championship in 2016.

“We have a big exam over the coming weekend, which reminds me of our return to MotoGP in 2016,” said Taramasso. – In the first season, they did not have data on a single highway, so they had to experiment and reinsure. The upcoming race will be held on the updated highway, which changed most of the asphalt.

For this reason, we were allowed to prepare four front and four rear slicks. We have created a whole range of tires that should ideally fit asphalt on the road thanks to the information obtained in previous years and from the company that carried out the work. ”
