Motul TT Assen, Nederland, vrijdag, 29. juni 2018

Assen is truly historic, having been on the calendar since the very first year. With amazing atmosphere and a true carnival of MotoGP™ taking over the town and track for the weekend, it’s a legend that can still be lived!

Last year, Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) took a stunning win at the TT Circuit Assen, just 0.063 ahead of compatriot Danilo Petrucci over the line as the two fought it out on an increasingly damp track. But the ‘Doctor’ took the spoils, and teammate Maverick Viñales crashed out to keep it tight at the top in the title fight. Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) completed the podium. In Moto2™, Franco Morbidelli (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) dueled title rival Tom Lüthi and the two were only a tenth apart over the line, with Moto3™ another stunner as Romano Fenati was just 0.035 off Aron Canet.

The final chicane at Assen often creates some of the best finishes of the year – and the atmosphere is sure to be addictive once you’ve stepped into a piece of MotoGP™ history at the TT Circuit Assen – trackside.

About the circuit
Assen is the only venue to have held a round of the Motorcycle World Championship every year since its creation in 1949. The circuit was purpose built for the Dutch TT in 1955, with previous events having been held on public roads. The track is narrow, with rapid changes in direction, and is fully surrounded by grass banks and grandstands, providing excellent viewing for the hundreds of thousands of fanatical spectators who are drawn to the most prestigious event in Dutch motorsport every year. A huge favourite with riders, Assen is well known for its festive and extravagant atmosphere.

In 1999 the circuit was modified with a new grandstand, control tower, press centre and renovated boxes. Modifications to the Assen circuit over the winter of 2005/6 saw the length of the championship’s longest serving track cut from over 6km down to 4.555km/2.83miles.
