The traditional finale of the MotoGP season, the Ricardo Tormo circuit at Valencia in Spain also hosts the World Superbike championship, usually the opening European round of the season. Other than its 876m main straight, it’s a tight and twisty track – nine lefts and five rights - and is set in a natural bowl with grandstands that offer views of virtually the entire 4.005km length.
The circuit is just 23km from the centre of one of Europe’s most dynamic cities and even less distant (18km) from the international airport.
