The 'Bugatti' circuit is located 5 km south of the city of Le Mans and about 200 km southeast of Paris. Built in 1965 around the track of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, at the end of the sixties the track was chosen to host a MotoGP Grand Prix. After a few years, the Le Mans race disappeared from the World Championship calendar until the 2000 season, while works were carried out to improve the safety of the track. The track is quite narrow and is characterized by particular curves, which force the pilot to make sudden braking and sudden acceleration. It is famous especially for its long straight, a piece of the RN138 (Route Nationale 138), known among the locals as Ligne Droite des Hunaudières, or in Italian as Rectilineo di Mulsanne. The high average speed and the very shape of the curves mean that maximum commitment and concentration are required of the drivers, with no chance of mistakes being forgiven.
