It was one of the great news of the MotoGP Catar prize.Johann Zarco beat with his ducati desmmosedici GP21.It reached 362.4 km/h on the Losail line, beating the previous brand, established by Andrea Dovizioso also with the Ducati.
Asked about this matter, some brand pilots have explained that it is a very easily overcome figure.In fact, everything indicates that in Mugello we will have a new record.Michele Pirro, Ducati's tester, says he has already made similar tip speeds in some private tests, and offers to look for 400 km/h.
"If you take into account that in Qatar the line is just over a kilometer and that the anterior curve is slow, that means that in about 800 meters of 80 to 360 km/h.Imagine if you were 500 meters of acceleration, "explains Pirro on the Losail circuit, a layout in which it goes very fast but is not the usual point for these records.
In fact, Zarco has broken in Losail what dovizioso established in Mugello in 2019.It is normally in Italy where these records are established, and if we go to that 2019 season we find that Mugello's peak speed exceeded 9 km/h to that of Qatar.That is, if everything goes normal this year you could reach 370 km/h.
But Pirro goes further.He believes that "if you give space to the motorcycle, if you lengthens the ratios and if you do not have the concern of curves, you go up to 400 km/ h without problems, easy".And, in addition, Pirro offers to verify it: "I ask Gigi Dall'igna to let a line of two or three kilometers of track, perhaps an airport, to see how quickly it can be the demo".
Jorge Martín, another Ducati pilot, coincides with Pirro that "in a long enough line we could reach 400 km/h, sure".The new ducati desmmosedici GP21 is a lenus in line that is sweeping everyone in the exits, and also in the arrivals at the finish line, as happened to Joan Mir in the first race of Qatar.
Pirro continues that "what needs to be understood is that it is not just a matter of engine power.We have always had it.That we can now reach these limits is due to the work done throughout the package, both in the aerodynamics that allows you not to fly, and in electronics and in the chassis ".
And the key is not the power of the V4 of Ducati, but that the pilots can open gas before and stop later, since aerodynamics and electronics helps them to have a faster curve step.Go at 400 km/h in a motorcycle race.A dream that is increasingly distant.Ducati can do everything.
