* DOTD = Data Of The Day *
The first set of Moto2 data has officially arrived! That’s right, this season the Grand Prix Scout team is expanding our pre-season and in-season analysis to include Moto2 and Moto3.
We thought it would be best to start big picture in order to give a general outlook of the 2020 Moto2 lineup. So let me introduce the pre-season Efficiency Index Ranking!
Grand Prix Scout’s newest performance index, the Efficiency Index, identifies a rider’s ability to make forward progress throughout a race. It takes into account each rider’s performance in both free practice and qualifying as the starting grid position is used to weight/handicap the overall efficiency.
This index rewards riders for 4 complimentary performance factors:
1. A strong starting grid position
2. A positive net movement meaning they finished the race ahead of their starting position
3. A large net movement value which suggests they overtook a significant amount of their opponents
4. A lower volatility signifying productive movement
The 2020 pre-season Efficiency Index Trajectories have been posted and the results are as many would say, on point! Click here to view the full ranking list.
