The Brno track (officially called the Masaryk circuit for the first Czechoslovakian president Tomáš Masaryk) is the historic site of the Czech Republic motorcycle Grand Prix and it is located 14 km north-west of the town with the same name in the Czech Republic. In the twenties, following the example of other particularly long European tracks like the Nürburgring, for the first time a 29.142 km long track was created on roads normally open to traffic.
After the second world war the track was shortened to 17.8 km (and the direction was reversed) and then to 10.9 km in 1975. Finally, in 1987 the new permanent installation was opened in an area not far from the original location where the pit area was maintained as a memento of days gone by.
The World Motorcycle Racing Championship has raced regularly there ever since, with an interruption in 1992.
