The Valencia Circuit in Cheste is a popular place to visit to watch motorcycle racing. This circuit is known worldwide for its design and layout.
In November, Valencia hosts the MotoGP World championships, and more than 120,000 fans travel here to watch the events. Since opening in 1999, the Valencia Circuit has won many awards, making it one the best circuits for spectating. The track is made specifically so that viewing the bikes is easy, and will never be out of view from spectators. Even Formula One uses this track for tests.
Events happen frequently, and fans take the events very seriously, so if you plan on going to the circuit, you must buy tickets in advance, because they usually sell out very quickly. Tickets can even sell for up to 1,000 Euros, since people come from all over the world to visit this famous track. In addition to this, hotels can get completely booked very fast, so plan ahead and make a reservation far in advance if you plan on attending.
On the day of the event, arrive with plenty of time because the lines will get very long and you’ll have to wait to enter the circuit. If you book everything in advance, it will be much easier, and it is worth the effort to see the cars racing and drifting around corners on this famous circuit.
The track is named after Ricardo Tormo, who was the first World Champion from Valencia. He won the title first in 1978, and then again in 1981. He also won the Spain Championship three times in the 50 cc and four times in the 125 cc. The Valencia Circuit will host the MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 World Championships November 11th, 12th and 13th this November.
