Circuit de Catalunya

Catalan Grand Prix
The 4.727 km (2.937-mile) track was built for both F1 and motorcycle GP racing, and this introduces a special complication for riders and technicians. The huge braking forces generated by the cars causes the tarmac to distort on the corner entries.

Historically, this washboard effect has made things difficult for the suspension engineers and even more so for the riders. However, the problem has been alleviated in recent years due to re-surfacing work.
