Six racetracks that are special to us

Six racetracks that are special to us
Stages to showcase speed and determination onObjectively speaking, racetracks are nothing more than closed-off loops of tarmac. Made for riders to go round as fast as possible. Whether clockwise or counterclockwise, you’ll always end up back at the start/finish.

It’s when you add the context of speed, emotion, and the kind of dedication it takes to go racing on a knife’s edge, that racetracks become places of history. Racetracks are the stages upon which the world’s greatest show of their speed and determination. Most tracks breathe excitement as soon as they roll into view, but… 

Some racetracks are just that little bit more special. These are those tracks to us. 

01.Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello

Location: Scarperia e San Piero, Tuscany, Italy
Length: 5.245 km 
Turns: 15
Direction: Clockwise
Opened: 1974

Imagine the single-most incredible stretch of winding road. You pass places with illustrious names – Borgo San Lorenzo, Scarperia, Poggio Secco – as you snake your way through the lush, green hills of Tuscany just outside Florence, Italy. This is Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello. Or Mugello for short. 

According to some, and definitely the Italians, this is God’s very own racetrack. And should you ever ride this rolling ribbon of perfection, you would find yourself struggling to disagree. And to us, Mugello will forever be even more special as the place REV’IT! Rider, Danilo Petrucci, finally won his very first race in MotoGP there. As an Italian, aboard the factory Ducati, on home soil – it’s the trifecta of Italian racing glory.

02.TT Circuit Assen

Location: Assen, Drenthe, The Netherlands
Length: 4.542 km
Turns: 18
Direction: Clockwise
Opened: 1984

On paper, the TT Circuit in Assen should not be as legendary as it has become. What started out as a track made up of 28.4 kilometers of cobbled country roads in 1925, became condensed to what we now know as the TT Circuit at just under five kilometers of incredibly grippy, fast-flowing corners. All of them cambered to embolden the bravest of riders to push. 

There’s hardly a straight to the track. Fast and flowing, like the Ramshoek and the ultimate final corner; the Geert Timmer chicane. Even the back straight called “Veenslang” isn’t a straight, as it snakes through the peaty Dutch heathlands. The Cathedral of Speed, as it’s known, has been on the GP calendar since the World Championship’s inception. And of course, it’s our home track.

03.Silverstone Circuit

Location: Silverstone, Northamptonshire, United Kingdom
Length: 5.891 km
Turns: 18
Direction: Clockwise
Founded: 1948

Possibly the world’s most famous circuit and the prototype post-war British racetrack. This is Silverstone. The then-abandoned WW2 airfield in the heart of England became a racetrack purely for the love of speed, as enthusiasts created their own racing layout by connecting the old runways and ring roads back in 1948. The main elements of this high-speed design still shape today’s modern circuit. 

With iconic corner names like Maggotts, Becketts, Brooklands, and Woodcote, Silverstone is etched in racing history as a track that brings out the very best in riders. Obviously including our #revitriders.

04.Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit

Location: Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia
Length: 4.445 km
Turns: 12
Direction: Counterclockwise
Founded: 1952

A favorite to many, Australia’s Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit’s unique, fast, and flowing character makes for a track that rewards rider bravery. Undulating like no circuit elsewhere in the world, the only thing making it even more special than its history of incredible racing – dating back to 1928 – is the amazing location. 

There are more seaside tracks, but none are draped across a gorgeous green island, lined with impressive cliffs, and additional challenges like the unpredictable wind adding yet even more flavor to this already thrilling track. One we hold very dear, too.

05.Laguna Seca Raceway

Location: Monterey, California, United States of America
Length: 3.602 km
Turns: 11
Direction: Counterclockwise
Founded: 1957

Basking in the California sun is a tightly packed track, located on the banks of what once was a dry lake, as its Spanish namesake still attests, this is Laguna Seca Raceway. No longer a staple on the GP calendar, the track in Monterey started hosting the American Grand Prix in the Golden Era of the late-80s, early 90s – lifting the circuit to a cult status. Further cemented by decades of thrilling Superbike racing to follow, both in domestic series and World Superbikes. 

At the end of the day, it all revolves around that one unique corner; the highlight has always been the daunting Corkscrew. Technically a chicane. Just one that drops 17.7 meters in just 135 meters of track. Breathtaking.

06.Autódromo Internacional do Algarve

Location: Portimão, Algarve, Portugal
Length: 4.592 km
Turns: 15
Direction: Clockwise
Opened: 2008

Autódromo Internacional do Algarve, or simply Portimão, it’s commonly called: The Rollercoaster. As the youngest track on our list, Portimão has garnered both fame and notoriety rather quickly since opening back in 2008. Its layout is wide and winding, reminiscing of the Nürburgring or Spa-Francorchamps. 

With several daunting, blind corners – that flow straight into other equally blind corners that riders tackle as the world seems to fall away from under them. Like with the already iconic turn-9 drop and the downhill braking zone into the blind and blindingly fast turn-1, both making for incredible racing across the board in WorldSBK and since 2020 even the Grand Prix.
