MotoGP 23 Great Britain setup
Silverstone has been the home of the British Motorcycle GP since 2010. The home of British motorsport is one of the best circuits in the world, as it has some incredible high-speed corners.
This runway is quite flat as it used to be an air force base during the war. However, it’s anything but easy, as corners like Copse, Maggots-Becketts-Chapel and Stowe are exciting.
Starting with the tyres, we believe that it is best to go with hard tyres. Despite being in the UK, track temperatures can be very hot. That, combined with the high-speed assault course, means you have to choose the most durable rubber available.
A medium tire at the front would mean you have to save tires before the last few laps of the race, so we don’t recommend it.
Front preload should be set to a low 1 to allow for more consistent steering through the longer corners at Sokol. Oil quality should be slightly above 3, with front spring rate at 4.
Front fork compression is best at 4, but fork extension should be less at 2.
At the rear, rear preload should be at 1 with the swingarm connector around 3. Spring rate should also be at 5, with shock compression at 2 and rebound also at 4 to help overall grip. the bike. .
For your vehicle geometry, the steering head tilt should be set to 1 to allow for more responsive steering.
The trail should be down by 1, but the steerer plate should be up by 5. Lastly, the length of the rear swingarm should also be up by 5.
Your UK gears should be around the default of 3. This gives a good compromise between acceleration and overall top speed.
The only exception to this is the final ratio, which is best at 5. The long Hanger and Wellington straights mean you’ll be hitting the rev limiter if you don’t increase this.
However, the slipper clutch should be in 4 to help the stability of the bike.
In Great Britain, there are two large braking zones at the end of the long straights. This just means you need powerful brakes and there are more significant braking zones in other areas of the track as well.
A 340mm high-mass brake at the front and a 220mm at the rear are the best options here.
As usual, the electronic aids that are available to you in MotoGP definitely come in handy here. You will have to raise them quite a bit to keep your bike on the road. However, the traction control can be at 3, as getting back on the gas is usually not difficult.
The engine brake should be increased up to 4 to slow down in long corners. However, the anti-wheelie only needs to be at 3, because the track is flat.
Power mapping is best at 3 for a fast lap, but you will need to change this for a few points in the race. This is to save the engine and fuel.
All of these can be adjusted on the track using the HUD at the bottom right of the screen.
