MotoGP 22 is the official game of the 2022 MotoGP season. However, while the game comes with the full calendar for this year, it also includes additional content. This includes historical circuits, such as the Czech Republic's Brno.

Brno is part of the 2009 season in MotoGP 22, thanks to its innovative Nine Career mode. Brno has been off the calendar since 2020 thanks to financial issues and safety concerns at the circuit.

There are some decent traction zones in Brno, but none that shred the tyres particularly harshly. Corners aren't too quick, but nor are there many very fast ones.

So, around the middle of the road with mediums on the front and rear is what we've found to be best.

The front suspension has to be a mix of high and low settings for a good compromise between stability and steering responsiveness. The front pre-load needs to be down at 2, with the swingarm extension also at 2.

The front spring hardness is optimal at 4. Lastly, the swingarm compression is also best at 4, with the oil quantity up at 5.

The rear suspension should be higher on the whole to increase stability. The pre-load is up at 4, with the swingarm connector at 3. Both the compression and extension of the shock absorber is also at 4.

Finally, the spring hardness has to be all the way up at 7.

Your Vehicle Geometry is best around the mid-range values, but the exception to this is the steering head inclination, which is best at around 7 for more stability.

The trail is best around 4, with the swingarm length also at 4. The steering plate position is ideal at 3.

The gear ratios need to be low for the low gears and high for the high gears in the Czech Republic. This is to give a high top speed and to also allow for good acceleration out of the slower corners.

The final ratio is best at 5, with the slipper clutch at 1 to help the bike's stability.

Brake System

There aren't many big braking zones in Czechia, but you do need powerful brakes here.

340 mm high mass on the front and 220 mm on the rear is what we've found to be best, as these give good stopping power while also retaining good levels of temperature.

You will have to accelerate while turning around Brno, the long and wide corners make this a necessity. So, the Traction control needs to be up at 4, with the Engine braking at 5 to help shave speed off around the corners.

You can get away with an anti-wheelie aid of 3 though, despite the rollercoaster ride of gradients you get around here. All of these can be adjusted out on track using the HUD in the bottom-right of the screen.
