The Red Bull Ring modified before this weekends racing gets underway

If you're a fan of motorcycle racing, you'll no doubt be watching the MotoGP, which starts tomorrow.

The new addition to the calendar, the Red Bull Ring, has been modified before racing has even started due to some safety worries. With a lot less corners, the track is very fast. 

Due to a number of riders expressing their concern about insufficient run off on some of the corners, changes have now been made to ensure safety and a tigher corner has been introduced.

The Red Bull Ring in Spielberg is located in the Murtal-region of Styria, Austria and was originally built in 1969. Ducati dominated the recent test, will they dominate on Sunday? 

You can watch the practises and race on BT Sports, from Friday 12th August.
