Few circuits sweep and turn like Brno. Even fewer have the deep history and connection with and location like the home of the Monster Energy Grand Prix de České republiky.
The howl of motorcycles and speed have reverberated around this zone of central Europe for a century and only one other place – Assen – has hosted more Grands Prix than the town of Brno. Why ‘town’? Prior to the creation of today’s permanent 5.4km motorsport facility in 1987, the Czechoslovakian Grand Prix was held on a course of more than 13km in length and along many of the public roads. The first edition was in 1965, the track was shortened in 1975 and was then considered too dangerous for bigger capacity bikes after 1977.
