AT A GLANCE
Dates: 3 Aug 2018 - 5 Aug 2018
Venues: Automotodrom Brno
The MotoGP Czech Republic takes place at Brno, a city with a strong tradition of motorcycle racing which dates back to the 1930s.
The current circuit first hosted MotoGP in 1987 and underwent a name change in 1993 when it became known as the Grand Prix of the Czech Republic. Brno has now hosted the most Grand Prix events on the Championship circuit, barring that of Assen in the Netherlands.
The Brno circuit is popular with fans, as the banked sides offer rather spectacular views; its varied elevation has also attracted many top international riders as it puts talent, skill and engineering to the test. The track is 5.4 kilometres in length with only six left and eight right corners, ensuring a competitive event. The longest straight, measured at 636 metres, is one of the shortest on the European circuit. Valentino Rossi currently holds the record for most poles (3) and most wins (5) for the Czech Republic MotoGP.
Brno is an interesting and unique European city; make sure you enjoy some downtime exploring Brno’s galleries, museums, cafes and city squares. Register your interest now and we will contact you once tickets for the 2018 MotoGP Czech Republic become available.
The centrally-located Czech Republic is arguably one of Europe’s most scenic countries, with mountains, forests and 12 UNESCO Heritage Sites ready to explore. While the capital city of Prague draws most visitors, Brno certainly deserves equal attention. The centre of town is particularly picturesque, with plenty of unique architecture - make sure you visit the Villa Tughenhat or the Petr and Pavel Cathedral. The South-Moravian region, where Brno is situated, is known for its wine farms. Enjoy a bottle or two of Brno’s finest with one of the local specialities: a Sýrová kulička (cheese ball), utopenec (pickled sausage) or Svíčková (beef sirloin in cream sauce), all of which can be found in the many pubs that line the streets of the city. Spend some time out and about discovering Brno’s highlights: the Spilerk Castle situated on the Petrov Hill, and the Veveri Castle near the Brno Reservoir are both popular with visitors. Also worth a visit is the Moravian Karst, a protected nature reserve just north of the city and which includes many unique geological features; over 1 000 caverns and gorges wind their way through the reserve, with five of the cave systems open for public tours.
