The second round of the Superbike World Championship is scheduled for 23-25 March on the Chang International Circuit. After an investment of 54 million euros was made to build this track, it was inaugurated in October 2014 and named after a local beer brand. In the three seasons that it hosted the Superbike World Championship, this Thai circuit set itself apart for its especially high temperatures: the air temperature ranged between 32 and 36 degrees and the asphalt between 42 and 50 degrees. According to Brembo engineers, who work closely with 16 of the World Superbike riders, the Chang International Circuit is by far the most demanding circuit for the brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it earned 5 on the difficulty index, matched only by the Imola and Donington tracks.
