- The TT Circuit Assen was built in 1955 and is located two kms to the south-west of the town of Assen and is considered 'The cathedral of motorcycling' by the fans. It has a capacity of 100,000 spectators, including 60,000 seats. The current track has a length of 4,555 metres (2.830 miles) with the mixture of super fast flat-out and slow corners. The longest straight is 560 metres (0.348 miles). The curves in Assen were traditionally banked and the surface is extremely grippy, so the riders were able to drive much faster on the course than other circuits. Today these sloped or curved bends have been modified due to safety issues.
