Estoril

Portuguese Grand Prix
The former host of the Portuguese Formula 1 Grand Prix joined the MotoGP calendar in 2000. Estoril is a track of extremes. The 4.182 km (2.599-mile) lap has one of the slowest average speeds of the year, with a lap record averaging just 153 km/h (95 mph). But in terms of maximum speed, only Mugello saw the MotoGP bikes go any faster than the 341.8 km/h (212.4 mph) recorded by Max Biaggi's Honda last year.

That tells you a lot about the nature of the track. The fast bits are very fast; the slow bits very slow. There is a long straight entered via a fast corner where the bikes can stretch their legs, but it ends with very hard braking for a tight right-hand corner, and the rest of the lap is slow and highly technical.
