Everything you need to know about the Grand Prix
This year’s Valencian Community Grand Prix will be the twentieth and final race of the Motorcycle World Championship. It will take place during the weekend of November 15th to 17th 2019 at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in the city of Cheste, just a one-hour drive from Valencia.
The event has become the traditional end of season finale, with huge crowds at the 150,000 capacity circuit creating a brilliant atmosphere.
About the circuit
The Circuit Ricardo Tormo, in the Valencian Community, is one of the best circuits in the current scene. It owes its name to the double world champion of 50 cc, Ricardo Tormo (the first Valencian to conquer a world title), who died in 1998 after losing the battle against leukemia.
The circuit has won several prizes in the Motorcycle World Championship, being voted as the best track in the world in 2003, 2004 and 2006.
With a capacity for 120,000 fans and some 65,000 seats, it offers a complete view of the entire route.
A must for all fans of motorcycles!
What better track could you ask for to house the end of the 2019 season?
With a design of American influence, there are many positions that give spectators a view of the whole route. The circuit plays an important role in the area, since around 2,000 people work in its facilities when the MotoGP attends its annual meeting.
Valencia enjoys great weather all year round, however the MotoGP arrives in Novembre as temperatures start to drop ahead of winter. Average daily highs are around 20°C and nightly lows of 8°C, so it can get cold after dark. Rain is also fairly uncommon in Valencia during the whole year.
But what about the accommodation?
There is plenty of accommodation near the circuit along the A3 motorway, but the best spots to stay can get booked up fairly quickly and are pretty expensive.
Another option is to book accommodation in Valencia. So what about a hostel? At the Purple Nest Hostel they offer both private and shared rooms at a very competitive price.
