It will certainly be "interesting" but will Jorge do what he did when he went to Ducati ? and take a time to get used to the bike ?
On the other hand Marquez will be as determined as ever to prove he is "top dog" and it might well get to the stage when Lorenzo and Rossi were at loggerheads at Yamaha

I have "strung" a few bits of video together that I have taken at the Almeria circuit from loads that I have taken at various times, just to show you what it's like if you have never been there.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmx-ASSx9GQ

One main thing, they don't get any complaints about noise

Looks great. Like a club racing circuit in the old days, but a bunch safer.

Do they ask everyone present to drive around and clean the sand off the circuit before they begin testing ?

Will they allow you to hire and use the track?
Track day business and holiday centre is looking good.

Michelin actually own the track and had it built as a test facility in the early 70s. I've no idea how much it cost to hire the circuit but the cost to individual riders on track days is very reasonable. Since I have been going there it has grown outwards and now incorporates another separate race circuit and various off road tracks for testing all sorts of vehicles.
I just go up there and take "pot luck" but mostly it's corporate days for motorcycles and occasionally cars on the actual original tarmac circuit with a lot of "born again" bikers reliving their "yoof" ! The winter testing for the various championships can be "locked down" but I normally find a way in.

This is from their blurb.
In order to ensure customer satisfaction and safety, Michelin must evaluate the performance of its products on test tracks. Its Centre d’Expériences Michelin Almería (CEMA) experimentation center in Almeria, southern Spain occupies 4,500 hectares in a beautiful desert area with the lowest rainfall in Europe. Michelin decided to integrate preservation of this area as a core objective of its presence in the region, proving that technology and ecology can go hand-in-hand.
