Reigning WorldSBK king Jonathan Rea is relishing the pressure of visiting a completely unknown track this weekend when Most opens its doors.
Most is laid out in a former industrial area and the design features several areas where a fast change of direction is required, and a very heavy braking area into the first chicane.
“It is always exciting going to a new circuit. Most is completely unknown to me and the team. Going to any new circuit I would study previous races, either MotoGP or past races of WorldSBK, but even after scouring the internet for footage it is very difficult to find race coverage of Most," said Rea.
"The layout looks nice, some fast and flowing corners so it is exciting to learn something new. When I arrive I will do some laps with my bicycle and do a track walk with my team.
"The base setup of our bike is in a really good window and on Friday it will be very important to find a good setup and a rhythm straight away.
"Step-by-step we will get ready for the race. We do not have much time in practice but I enjoy that - being under pressure.
"I am looking forward to seeing what we can do. We had a great weekend in Assen so it would be nice to carry on with that momentum behind us.”
