The entirety of rubber from the tyre touching the circuit surface at any one time is about the size of a credit card, even when the motorcycle is going round the corner with his knee and elbow caressing the tarmac.

MotoGP is divided into 3 divisions: MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3. At the moment all the classes use four-stroke engines with MotoGP using a 1000cc motor, Moto2 uses a 600cc engine and Moto3 a 250cc motor.
