The new MotoGP circuit for motorcycles is basically a street course but designed so that part of it is closed to public traffic during race weekends. The surface of a racetrack is crucial for the grip and tyre wear of the motorcycles. Therefore, the track surface must meet the highest standards.

BOMAG paving and compaction equipment was selected to install the asphalt elements of the track.

For paving the asphalt course layers, two BOMAG BF 800 C pavers where used. The compaction was done by 10 tonne BOMAG tandem rollers BW 161 AD-4 and pneumatic tyre rollers type BW 24 RH.
