ABOUT POLE POSITION TRAVEL

history || our mission (what we do) || your money || our guarantees || what people say about us

polepositiontravel.com is part of the Pole Position Travel group of web sites dedicated to providing travel solutions for motorcycle fans world wide. We currently provide services for customers seeking to attend MotoGP, World Superbike and the Isle of Man TT.

We enjoy a close working relationship with circuits, riders, teams and tournament organisers and other suppliers to bring you the best possible experience.

We attend every MotoGP, and we are in all VIP Villages as well as our private hospitality units at several events, giving you the assurance that there is someone on hand. As of 2014 we also have our own in-paddock hospitality, as well as work with several MotoGP teams to bring you "team experience" packages.

We can handle groups, clubs, corporate hospitality, and of course simply individuals. If you have a special request, please contact us.

Pole Position Travel SE is a European Join-stock company with seat in Prague, Czech Republic and a subsidiary company in the UK. Most of our team now reside in lovely Prague.

 

Brief history

Pole Position Travel grew out of a software company in Scotland run by founder and managing director Gordon Howell. In developing an "enterprise management system" for small tour operators, we required a pilot project. We chose the2002 Brno MotoGP in line with Gordon's keen interest in motorcycles.

Following this successful pilot, our first commercial event was in 2003 when we brought over 500 people to Brno Czech Republic under our flagship travel web site www.BrnoGrandPrix.com

In 2004 we had over 800 customers in Brno, and brought people to the new track in Qatar (www.Qatar-GrandPrix.com).

In 2005 we had nearly 1400 ticketholders in Brno, and groups in Laguna Seca, Germany, the new circuit at Istanbul, Assen and Valencia.

At this point, realising that he preferred motorcycles to software, Gordon took the MotoGP business out of his existing company, set up Pole Position Travel and re-based in Prague, Czech Republic, where we remain headquartered.

In 2006 we had the largest VIP VIllage presences in: Brno (in a private lounge), Laguna Seca, Sepang, Valencia. In Brno we had nearly 1500, with 16 buses, an opening Pig Roast at the Monasterey, a charity event at the Brewery with Randy Mamola and Steve Parish in benefit of Riders for Health, a Karting miniGP on Friday and more.

In October 2006 we took over the bookings for Valencia from the defunct company moto-events. This entailed us re-booking some 750 tickets, 80 hotel rooms, buses, ViP, reception and more in a space of 2 weeks. Several of the comments below reflect customers' appreciation of our 'rescue' of their MotoGP break...

In 2007 we brought customers and attended all 18 events, developing the total portfolio of events and products. We held parties at all events, rapidly becoming one of the highlights of a GP weekend! Our largest party at Brno attracted over 400 people, despite the rain! We also started sponsorship of some riders and teams, helping us to get more ínside the sport and share this with our customers. Finally, we are proud to have been able to expand our our charity work with several events in benefit of Riders for Health and Down Syndrome Ireland (see www.charity.gp)

2008 saw us going to all events again, and consolidating our position as market leader; seeing a nearly 50% rise in turnover.

At the end of the year we launched our new ClubGP giving customers an opportunity to get ''inside" MotoGP, as well as enjoy special privileges as one of our extra-VIP customers! We expanded our charity events, and have now raised in excess of €50,000.

2009 brought a downturn in line with the world economy, however we still found we were consistently the largest group in the VIP Villages and we have been pleasantly surprised that some of our events did even better in 2009! In 2010 we expanded our sponsorships and launched our "MotoGP Team Experience" in partnership with Honda Gresini - for the first time offering in-paddock experiences as a full guest of a MotoGP team.

2011 saw our first venture in World Superbikes with our partner team Alstare Suzuki. Alas they retired at the end of the season, and in 2012 we partnered with an up-and-coming team, Kawasaki. In the space of that thrilling season, their lead rider Tom Sykes caught up with the leader Max Biaggi and came to within 0.5 points of taking the world title! We continue to work with Kawasaki, and in 2013 they fulfilled their dream of becoming World Champion. 2011 also saw the arrival in MotoGP of British World Supersport Champion Cal Crutchlow, with whom we have enjoyed a partnership since.

Also in 2012 we launched our first tour to the Isle of Man TT, immediately setting a new standard for top VIP tours. We managed to get all of our customers into the course cars for a lap at speed on the closed course just prior to the race on senior race day! We are now the acknowledged leaders in top VIP tours to the TT.

In 2013 we expanded our team, now 7 full time with part time representation in USA and Australia. We expanded our sponsorships as well, to 5 riders in all three grids, plus SBK and Isle of Man enabling us to deliver more Team Experiences than ever before!

In 2014 we have launched the "Pole Positipon Club" - our private in-paddock hospitality. We added another British World Supersport champion, Sam Lowes, to our sponsorships. We are running a new pilot into World MX, and looking into other events to add to our growing portfolio as we continue our policy of re-investment into the sport.

Our Mission

Our mission is to be the world leading destination specialist for world motorcycle event travel.

if you want to go to a MotoGP, Superbike or Isle of Man, or want to bring customers or clients, we will take care of all your needs. We have a specialism in VIP requirements (and a dedicated web site for this, polepositionVIP.com)

Our main customers are:

  • Individuals, families and small groups of friends.
  • Companies for incentive trips and client entertainment
  • Clubs and other loose associations of people (if you are a club travel coordinator we will make your life a lot easier!)
  • Agencies, especially those targetting their regional market (sell on commission or re-package)
  • Teams and others involved in the sport itself

We are about the largest specialist in MotoGP travel. In fact, our strength derives from our exclusive commitment to moto sports- we don't do anything else. This enables us to focus on the key areas of knowledge which we can pull together in bringing you the best possible experience:

  • Commitment to the sport and 'inside' knowledge and contact
  • In-depth, on-the-ground research into the destinations; to enhance your experience off-track as well as on.
  • We are bikers ourselves!

We appoint local 'destination managers' who help ensure that all goes smoothly and you get the best from your short GP weekend. Local knowledge and local language are critical to success. We speak Italian in Italy, Spanish in Spain, German in Germany, Czech in Czech Republic and even American in the USA and Australian in Australia!

Together with our event managers, we:

  • Secure tickets in the grandstands we believe provide the best experience
  • Select hotels which offer outstanding quality and services in their range. All hotel rooms are en-suite, and we cater for different party sizes (singles, triples, families) and stays (you must only obey the minimum length requirement and stay the night before the race day - usually Saturday night) Our deluxe packages always feature the best hotel in the region to guarantee the top event experience.
  • Organise ground transport (and sometimes air!) to get you as efficiently and comfortably as possible from hotel to circuit.
  • Plan parties and cultural excursions to provide you with a full programme of activities for the weekend
  • Learn all we can about the destination to be able to help you plan your travel and maximise your weekend!

Us and your money

We appreciate that going to an event can mean a substantial outlay; not just in purchasing tickets and accommodation, but also your air travel, incidental costs and of course your planning time and committment of your precious holiday days.

We want you spend your money wisely. We will help you work within your budget, we will NEVER attempt to 'oversell' you, and indeed where we can suggest costs savings we will !

We promise "no traumas". We are fully insured; and enjoy strong support from our private investors. Owing to our financial strength, we pre-pay all tickets, accommodation and other services (usually long before you arrive) so there is no danger of you losing your money -- or your holiday.

Indeed, as many of our customers are painfully aware, at the failure of one agency just prior to Valencia 2006, we were able to step in 3 weeks before the event and repurchase all the tickets and hotel accommodation, and re-organise the event. To the their immense relief, some 85% of the former customers' holiday plans were recovered.

Our Guarantees

Our guarantee to you is simple: we strive for complete satisfaction. If you have any complaint, please contact us as soon as possible.

We treat the very few complaints we get quite seriously. Nobody is perfect, and when we have made a mistake we will bend over backwards to rectify it or compensate you for inconvenience (within our terms and conditions, limited to the total value you have paid us)

While our terms and conditions state that we can't be responsible for third party failures (typically hotel problems, issues with your tribune seat, bus breakdowns, etc.) we are here to help overcome these issues; and we will help pursue compensation where we feel it is reasonable.

As the old saying goes: if you like what we do, tell others. If you have complaints, tell us!

Testimonials

Here is a very small selection of customer comments from events back to 2005. It certainly helps our hard-working team feel good that we can share our passion with you!

[motegi14] That was awesome I have always wanted to wander around a MotoGP grid. Carlo is an excellent host and really appreciate his hospitality.

[aragon14] We wanted to say a big thank you for all the help you gave us with our booking, my sister and I had a great time at Aragon for the MotoGP - a trip we'll never forget.
Pleas ... pass on our thanks to Gordon and Laura for all their kindness and super hospitality - they are lovely people and we greatly appreciated all the arrangements they made which made our weekend hassle free and so much fun. We met lots of wonderful people in our group and you never know, we may just meet them again on a future trip with Pole Position - that would be really great.

[misano14] Just want to say thank you so much for the experience you all gave us...loved every minute of it, its a top service you are providing, keep doing what your doing.

[misano14] I had a truly extraordinary experience at Misano and Aragon that I'm still trying to mentally reconcile. I still find it difficult to believe that I was able to talk with riders from all three classes, pour over motorbikes and watch two very, very good MotoGP races. I cannot thank you enough for your efforts. You made doors open through your relationships with the teams and riders. I still cannot believe the photos that I had taken with so many riders, was able to walk down pit lane or exist in a MotoGP garage for several hours. ... Of the two races Misano was the absolute highlight, mostly because everything was new and because of Valentino Rossi's win. I purchased your ClubGP MotoGP Insider's Night and (Thursday) and ClubGP MotoNight (Saturday) products. Both are faultless products. Thursday evening was something else because of access to riders such as Karel Abraham and Jakub Kornfeil. Regarding the ClubGP MotoNight, I had the most amazing experience. I really felt as though the red carpet was rolled out for us by Honda Gresini. The hospitality provided by LCR was also great and welcoming even though I wasn't one of their guests.

[jerez14sbk] I would just like to say thank you for such an amazing weekend at Jerez WSB. I cannot put into words what an amazing time we had. We got everything we expected and so much more. I will never be able to go back to watching a race from a grandstand!!!! Our guide, Laura, was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Nothing was a problem and she saw to it that we got the most from our experience. I can't thank her enough. So needless to say, we will be back. Can't wait to book again. Thanks again and see you soon!

[jerez14sbk] I just wanted to get in touch to say what a wonderful time we had in Jerez, at the WSB...Laura was our host. She is a credit to your industry, and was a world of knowledge for our weekend to be made very special.

[jerez14sbk] Got back last night from the WSB weekend in Jerez, I'd like to thank you & your team for an excellent weekend, something we're sure to do again.

[silverstone14] Now we're getting back to normality, just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for making a perfect weekend possible. The Team Experience was fantastic, way beyond our expectations; we met some great people; and the whole weekend was AMAZING in every way. Thank you! ... Also, please pass on our thanks to Matt, Patrick and all the team. Everyone was so helpful and made our visit thoroughly perfect.

[silverstone14] Big thank you ... for making the weekend and our first anniversary great! See you in Valencia!

[silverstone14] Just a quick line from us to thank all at pole position for an ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS time at Silverstone last weekend.
We have so many memories of incredible moments throughout the weekend, culminating on walking on the grid, then sharing the celebrations under the podium. If you didn't believe it before, it Is real champagne! We will send some more pictures when we finally get home to Australia.

[silverstone14] Thanks guys for a fantastic few days. The racing was great but what really made it was the hospitality suite and all the stuff that went along with it. But what was really special was the way we were looked after, we were treated more like friends than customers which really gave it the X factor.

[silverstone14] Thank you ever so much for our amazing weekend at Silverstone

[silverstone14] Thanks on behalf of Alexander and myself, we had a fantastic weekend. Great company, hospitality and Patrick was superb. Pramac were good hosts too.

[lemans14] I sincerely thank you for all the arrangement over the entire weekend, especially for the track tour on the scooter with you! It was just fabulous!!

[jerez14] We have recently come back from Jerez MOTOGP and we had a great time. Thanks to Roberto who was our guide for the weekend.

[jerez14] Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Roberto for a fantastic day at Jerez. We met so many riders, the food was fantastic and the trip round the circuit (3 up on a scooter!!) was the icing on the cake.

[texas14] Hi Gordon,
I just wanted to say a big thanks for all you did in Austin. For me going in the gresini garage was the highlight and that's all thanks to your time and generosity. We had another awesome trip and hope to do it again next year! hope to see you again at Silverstone once again you were awesome and a fabulous host.

[aragon14sbk] I had a fantastic time at WSB in Aragon, Spain. Tom Sykes winning both races was the icing on the cake. Roberto was an excellent host for Pole Position Travel in the Kawasaki team experience.

[qatar14] Great weekend and a great crowd. Thanks to Mark and Roberto.

[qatar14] We enjoyed Qatar very much, the whole weekend was every thing we had hoped for and so much more.
We had a fabulous time and got to meet all the stars of the paddock. Please pass on our sincere thanks to Roberto and especially Mark as we were in his group, who worked very hard and went out of their way to make the weekend such a special experience for us.

[jerez13sbk] The best motorcycle event I have ever been to! Being in the pit when Tom won the world championship was an indescribably privileged experience! Pass on my thanks to Kawasaki and of course to the Pole Position Team!

[phillipisland13] Meeting Gordon, Suzie (what a sweetheart!), and the rest of the PPT team was a pleasure, our accommodations fantastic... Having dinner (and breakfast!) with Cal Crutchlow's Dad was supercool, and meeting Alvero Bautisto at dinner - well, we're fans.

[phillipisland13] Thanks to the team for working so hard to accommodate my health issues you guys went above and beyond the call of duty to get me to the race on Sunday. You set the bar high for a travel experience... Would recommend PPT highly to anyone

[aragon13] Hi Patrick, my thanks for a great weekend at Aragon. It was an experience
that I will never forget.

[lagunaseca13sbk] Wanted to thank Pole Position and especially Herod for a great weekend in Laguna. We were a small group but had a blast and meeting Tom was the highlight of our trip, too bad he didnt podium on Sunday. Anyway thanks again and will see you in the future.

[misano13] Hi Mark
Hope you and the others had a safe drive back home. Thank you again for the lift to Bologna airport, that was very kind of you.

Just wanted to say thanks to you and Roberto for helping make my time in Italy a fun one. Really enjoyed it as I had nothing to worry about apart from the evil mosquitoes.

Hopefully see you all at another GP soon, sadly I don't think I can make it to another one this year but probably next year :o)

[misano13] I have to tell you, we had an incredible weekend at Misano MotoGP. I met a lot of riders and with one or the other I could also talk personally. Furthermore, I had a backpack with me, which was signed by many prominent riders. For example, Valentino Rossi, Loris Capirossi, Colin Edwards, Fausto Gresini, Simone Corsi, Randy Mamola, and much more riders have signed. Now I have a priceless souvenir. It was a real highlight for me, to met the riders and to get all this famous signatures.

[brno13] Dear Jana
Just a brief note to say how much we enjoyed the MotoGP experience with Pole Position Travel, the racing was superb.
The Wine tasting evening combined education and enjoyment which is always a winning formula.
Would you please convey our appreciation to all the team who worked tirelessly and professionally to ensure we all had a wonderful time, particularly Mark and Patrick who went out of their way to look after us all.
When Gordon and yourself come to Scotland Campbell and I would be happy to meet with you, if you have time, and we can perhaps show Gordon "The Whiskey Society" which is a must if you enjoy a "tipple" (particularly with Gordon's Scottish roots !)
Kind regards
Roger and Campbell.

[brno13] Hi, I recently went to the Check Republic MotoGP and just wanted to say thank you for a great weekend. I would like to specifically say a big thank you to Mark, who I felt went above and beyond what was expected of him. Holiday dates permitted, we will definitely be booking for another MOTOGP with Pole position Travel.

[lagunaseca13] Hi Gordon, just a quick shot to thank you for a great track experience at Laguna. It went just as we had hoped. Sadly we couldn't join the last night festivities, but we did meet Cal Crutchlow in town for a chat, and Marjorie got her photo taken with Colin Edwards, so again thankyou.

[valencia12] Thanks to you and everyone at Pole Position for helping make my trip to Valencia a really memorable and fun time without any worries.

[valencia12] I would like to thank everyone at Pole Position Travel for making the Valencia MotoGP 2012 weekend the best time I've ever had. I would like to thank you again for my making my dream to see a race possible.

[phillipisland12] Jared and I had such a fantastic time at the MotoGP at Phillip Island. I got pretty much everything I wanted out of it and we plan to go to more events in future. We loved it so much we're considering sponsoring some new Australian talent through our company.

[sepang12] Gordon, please allow me to also agree with Gavins sentiments below. You and your team were all extremely friendly, approachable and accommodating which has culminated in a fantastic weekend and set the bar for future Moto GP events to come. Many thanks again.

[sepang12] Dear Gordon : I am writing a note to you and your team on behalf of Ian, Ken and myself. It is difficult to come up with the right words to describe the experience you created for us over this weekend without gushing like a little girl and sounding like a crazed fanatic!
When we first committed to the package, I made sure that I played down expectations with Ian and Ken just in case the weekend turned out a bit ordinary. I didnt want to set up expectations that just couldnt happen. I guess we had no idea of what to expect!
What we all experienced was seriously mind-blowing. Mostly we thought it impossible to have the opportunities we had. Everything about our time over this weekend was truly fantastic. We have sincerely had the best of times, the most amazing experiences and you have shown us so much generosity and genuine hospitality.
You are a very professional, friendly and sincere person, who has by far gone out of the way to deliver more than promised. Thank you.

[sepang12] Hope you had a safe journey home - this is a HUGE THANK YOU for such a fantastic time in Malaysia - it was just outstanding and brilliant and at a perfect time to lift Dan's spirits.
Thanks a million from the bottom of our hearts.

[sepang12] "Gordon,
Just like to pass on a big thanks from the Milnes. Words can not explain the week that you gave us. I am sure we will see you next year. Thanks a million."

[sepang12] we would like to thank you all for such a wonderful experience. From the moment we sent an email requesting information about your travel packages to saying goodbyes on the Sunday afternoon we have nothing but praise for your team We will definitely be visiting Pole Position Travel again.

[magnycours12sbk] I just wanted to thank you belatedly for a fantastic WSBK trip to Magney Cours , it really was a great weekend with some great people and your planning was world class

[misano12] just a short note to say we enjoyed our Team Experience, and I hope your visit to Tavullia went well. Thanks to you and the PP team.

[nurburgring12sbk] Just want to say, What a weekend..! Fantastic.! Friday we met Susie and she was super, she and kawasaki
really made us feel welcome and part of the team.

[brno12] Still drooling over the time we spent with you in Czech Rep. What an experience, all the attention you guys give to all the clients is unbelievable. Patrick was especially accommodating to all our needs and always had time for a laugh... Eva remains bouncy and joyful, what a personality.
Still need to do the trip again as there was so much we missed. We need 2 full weeks to do justice to all the activities. Thanks once again.

[moscow12sbk] Thanks for a memorable weekend at the Moscow WSBK. Natasha and I had a great time, and the opportunity to interview Sykes after his 1-2 finishes for the Moscow news channel was the icing on the cake (with me wearing the inaugural gift polo to boot!). We also would like to extend our gratitude to the Kawasaki team for their kind hospitality and informative garage sessions, with special thanks to Guim and Marta. Although it is unclear when, we are looking forward to our next team experience with Pole Position Travel either at a WSBK or MotoGP event in the future.

[brno12] Thanks for that, I have raved about your service to anyone I have spoken to
about MotoGP - I wish I could find agencies like yours for other sports.

[brno12] Just want to say a HUGE thanks again for making my weekend an amazing one, I really don't think it could have been better!

[brno12] Just a short message to say what a wonderful week-end we had at Brno, the free bus service from the town centre to the circuit each day was excellent, we did not have to wait at either end, going out to the circuit or our return journeys. Good Hotel, plenty of places to eat and drink, and the weather was dry and not too hot. We will be going back again to this race in the future.

[brno12] Liz and myself are back home now but felt a little thank you for giving us such a great time. We'll have fond memories for quite some time...

[indy12] "Finally back home 24hrs later than planned. Had a fantastic time in Indianapolis and a big thanks to everyone who made it so special! Great way to celebrate my birthday!!!"

[indy12] Just wanted to let you know we had a great time again with Pole Position. Indy is a great venue. Gordon did an excellent job. Carlo was wonderful and accommodating.

[indy12] "On behalf of myself & my mate we would like to thank Gordon Howell from Pole Position Travel for all his tireless efforts in organising things for us @ IndyGP including having Ant West come up & give a talk to Pole Position customers Ant was great with everyone that approached him including some off us that may have questions that might've made no sense to him .
It was one off my best experiences in my life & thank$ again Gordon . This is the view from the stretch limousine that we were lucky enough to have pick us up from hotel as part off our hotel to airport transfer i am not sure it will always be a stretch limousine but having your name held up when you arrive @ an airport makes you feel like a superstar :)"

[lagunaseca12] I wanted to write formally and thank you for all you offered James at Laguna-this was our first time at this track and we can't wait for 2013 and we have just returned yesterday.
We had a fabulous time!

[lagunaseca12] Gordon: We have just gotten home and we wanted to drop you a note to thank you for a
great weekend at Laguna. Your connections and passes made a great weekend
truly unforgettable. We had a lot of fun and you will definitely be seeing
us again. Thanks Again

[lagunaseca12] Thank you Gordon - we (my sons Dominic and Alex) had a fantastic time at
Laguna Seca and much of it is a credit to you and your staff. The corkscrew
and garage tours were highlights of a weekend full of memories that my sons
and I will have forever!

[lagunaseca12] I want to write you a note of thanks for the experience of a lifetime I had at Laguna....you came through for us in a big way to make the weekend better than what it would have been had it all gone to perfect plan! First of all I got there early and came out with you to the track on the Thursday and you handed me a 'backstage' (not the garden variety) pit pass and I was able to wander around the motorhomes and the catering tents for hours seeing riders and crew go about their business and play. I got to go in their several times more over the weekend getting close to all the riders. Then there was the Gresini pit pass allowing us into their pit box to see its machinations. This was amazing. But the creme de la creme was the Track Access Passes you got hold of letting stand where the marshals stand. I got to watch the race from THE dream spot at Laguna- the Corkscrew. Wow! I was within spitting distance from the bikes as they snaked their way down. Valentino crashed right in front of me and Spies just down from where I was. When the race finished I was standing behind the marshals waiving their flags.
I forgot to mention the hotel. The respol team was staying there, the Ducati team, Gresini Honda team. I got to meet Valentino and Pedrosa at breakfast, and shake Bautista's hand at check in. And then there was the Red Bull riders after party on Sunday night which your contacts got us into. Very cool. Was nice to talk with Jorge, Elias, Dovi and Nicky.
I had never been to MotoGP before, and now I won't be able to go again without booking through Pole Position Travel otherwise it would be a let down. I appreciate your efforts to make our weekend great.

[lagunaseca12] Just wanted to say a big thank you again for your hospitality over the Laguna Seca race weekend, we had a fabulous time!

[mugello12] I'd just like to take the opportunity to thank Denis and Eva, for rescuing my apparentley doomed trip to Mugello. After my airline/car hire company let me down you guys saved the day. Thank you so much, a small effort went a long way.

[iomtt12] "Thank you so much to Sammy and you for facilitating my first TT experience Gordon. I will certainly be recommending Pole Position Travel. Might even consider Valencia."

[catalunya12] Eva
thanks from me and Louise (and the Youngs) for being such a great host. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

[catalunya12] Thank you for a nice weekend in Barcelona. It was a great race, and many thanks to Eva.
We hope to come back an other time.

[catalunya12] Hi Patrick. Just to let you know we had a fab time in Catalunya and all went very smoothly thanks to all of your planning.

[utah12sbk] Hey Herod .A sincere thank you ,for an unforgetable WSBK experience,your tireless arranging for a behind the scenes look at how WSBK works will always be remembered regards

[lemans12] I just wanted to e-mail you to say thank you for all your kindness in keeping me informed and the good and clear advice that you provided me with.
You are a credit to your organisation and because of the professional manner in which you have handled me as your customer I shall definitely be using Pole Position again to book my tickets in the future.

[monza12sbk] Patrick, Thank you once again for your great customer service. Regards, John

[estoril12] Second event we have been to with your and thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the position of [the] Hotel. Loved the trip to to the curcuit on Thursday night for the Insiders Night, meeting lots of riders and hospitality of Gresini and their staff. Eva as always very helpful...

[estoril12] We would like to thank you for your great support during the MotoGP of Estoril. You were very friendly and courteous. I hope we can go to Brno next year!

[jerez12] Jerez 12.Hi,just want to thank Richard for an excellent Motogp night with team Gresini. You showed us aroud the paddock and we got some great photos and some autographs from riders as Ben S and Bautista. We will se you again.

[jerez12] We are just back from our MotoGP trip to Jerez (as we stayed on in Spain for the rest of the week) and had a great time with the Pole Position Team. This was our first MotoGP trip and we enjoyed it so much we are already looking in to another trip for later on this year.

[assen12sbk] Back from SBKS, had an excellent time. The Effenbert team looked after me very well.

[qatar12] It was nice to meet Richard who was very knowledgeable and really good company. Looking forward to a fun time with him in Indy this year! Had an incredible weekend as usual all expectations were exceeded. It's so nice to be treated as a person rather than a number.

[qatar12] An amazing weekend! Stephen and I loved every minute...Our hotel was more than adequate...having a bar made a huge difference! Losail is amazing as a spectacle and the intimacy of the event is breathtaking...We both had a brilliant time and you will see us again soon.

[qatar12] Wish I'd arrived a day earlier.
Richard Gledhill was a brilliant rep & very proactive. A feather in the cap for Pole position travel.

[imola12sbk] First of all, thank you very much for your attention to us. Really excellent the visit to the garage. Please send my congratulations to all the team of polepositiontravel.

[jereztest12] All in all, a brilliant holiday - even though we have done tests in various different forms since 2006/7 - we love this circuit and love the area. May they NEVER stop racing there!

[sepangtest12] Just got home in Singapore from the 2012 MotoGP test in Sepang, had a great time and enjoyed every minute of it. We were very much taken care by Richard Gledhill, our guest speaker Neil gave wonderful insight about MotoGP. Really loved the experiences and with great company too.
Can't believe we had the pit lane to ourselves!!!

Thanks to all in poleposition travel.
This won't be my last test!!!

[sepangtest12] Thanks to Pole Position Travel who gave me the opportunity to have this once in a lifetime experience during the testing at Sepang. Richard is a great host who makes it obvious following the bikes is a passion and not just a job.

[valencia11] Thanks again to Denis, Eva and yourself for the great time we had in Valencia it truly was a memorable one.

[valencia11] I just want to say hi and thank you, Denis, Eva, LCR and your sponsored drivers for a great weekend in Valencia! I was hoping to be a guest with Marco when he would take his first victory, instead I was there for a great tribute to a great rider. I will be back next year! Stay safe

[valencia11] Just want to say that we had a fantastic weekend, excellent company and excellent racing. will be in touch very shortly to sort out 2012.

[sepang11] Hi Denis.Id like to thank you for all your help over the last two years of us going to Sepang. We are really looking forward to it.Once again thanks.Go the mighty all blacks in the rubgy world cup.Bye Wendy Forsyth

[imola11sbk] ...we had a great time. Thank you for taking care of us. Was good to meet you.

[imola11sbk] Just wanted to let you know that Imola was great!! We ended up at Marco Melandri's energy drink party which was lots of fun and nobody was there so we got to see Marco djing pretty well ;D
Eva was great, also my mother agrees.

[aragon11] Trip was fantastic and we will definitely book with pole position again!

[misano11] Just writing to tell you that both my father, Peter, and myself had a fantastic time at the Misano Motogp this year, thanks to yourselves.
You could not have organised the weekend any better!. The weekend went superbly and we did everything we wanted to do.

[misano11] Hi Gordon. On behalf of John and myself, I would again like to express my immense gratitude for spotting us at the entrance to the pits at the San Marino GP and providing us with temporary passes for the pits. The tour you gave us was very enjoyable. Its not often you get something for nothing these days.

[misano11] Just felt that it was very important to make quick contact with you to thank you and all the team at Pole Position for making the trip absolutely brilliant. As you know Mary & I arrived earlier in the week and the hotel did provide us with possibly the best room in the hotel, we had a great time both before the MotoGP and also at the circuit.

Thanks to all concerned, keep up the very good work.

[indy11] Thanks for a great weekend at Indy, you looked after us really well and we had a fabulous time. As promised, heres the photos of me with Valentino.

[brno11] Thanks for organising our trip to Brno, we had an amazing time.
Many thanks

[brno11] the overall weekend exceeded all our expectations, the staff were all great fun and a pleasure to be around. We must give a very special thank you to Eva as she went above and beyond her duties by lending me her flip flops on Saturday as i made the mistake of wearing heels. This has truly been the best weekend of our lives to date and we cannot wait to rebook with Pole Position and we will recomond you to all our family and friends as we believe everyone should experience your hospitality, profesionalism and friendship.
Thank you all for the best 40th birthday ever

[mugello11] Dear Gordon, Jana, Patrick, Ava & Denis,
Just a quick note to say a big thank you for a wonderful experience at Mugello.
We all had a superb time sightseeing in Florence, then at the track followed by enjoying
more scenery and relaxation during the Chianti tour.
We really appreciate everything you did to make this a great trip for
us and we hope to see you again ....

[mugello11] Many thanks to you and Denis, and to all the Pole Position team for your friendly and efficient service. I look forward to seeing you all in Italy!

[mugello11] Top wekend, thanks again. Great welcome party and the Sat night in the pits was excellent so will be doing that one again.

[mugello11] u guys did u great jod at Mugello ,thanks so much...form Singapore

[mugello11] Wow, what an incredible weekend, the result didn't go the way of the Aussie's nor Italian's but that didn't matter. Just wanted to give a special thanks to Dennis for the contact through the booking process, Gordon and Eva for the hospitality over the weekend - especially the Friday - to almost be run over by Rossi within 5 minutes of entering the paddock, lunch with the Ongetta 125cc team and MotoGP afternoon practice from pit lane - wow.

[mugello11] We have had some pretty amazing holidays in our time, (in fact we were cruising the Carribean only seven months ago)... but this...well, this completely outstripped all of them! We both had the absolute time of our lives, with experiences we could have only dreamed of before. We took over 2300 photos, which we have managed to get down to just under 600, and we have to show people our pictures because if not, they simply wouldn't believe us!

[mugello11] Further to our conversation this afternoon, I wanted to take the opportunity to email you to let you know what a fantastic time myself and my husband had at Mugello earlier this month.

[mugello11] On behalf of Mick and myself we would just like to express our sincerest gratitude for your and for Pole Position's hospitality during our stay at Assen and Mugello. It was our first Moto GP experience and we have the time of our lives!

[assen11] Just a very BIG thank you e mail for everything at my FIRST MotoGP at Assen 2011...Once again....THANK YOU very much ALL, great time
Hooked.....

[silverstone11] Belated thanks to everyone who made the Silverstone weekend one to remember. Please pass on my thanks to all and hope to catch up with everyone in the near future

[silverstone11] Belated thanks to everyone who made the Silverstone weekend one to
remember.

[silverstone11] Ihave to say the boy's really enjoyed it. I'm sorry i missed it now.
The really appreciated everyhting you did for them. YOU WERE A STAR.
And we really are looking forward to booking with you again soon.

[silverstone11] Just to say thanks for the weekend at Silverstone. Andrew and I had a fab time - Andrew was so chuffed to have been allowed out in Pit lane and on the Pit Wall during the race - definitely a moment to remember! Big thanks to you and the Gresini Team for allowing that to happen

[lemans11] It was the first time I have used your company for the Le Mans Moto GP round - just to let you know that you have been a great company to deal with - good communications and easy ticket collection. Many Thanks for a great customer experience.

[jerez11] Just a short note to say many thanks for facilitating my late request for alternative tickets for Jerez....Until next year! Thanks again.

[qatar11] What a great weekend guys. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Magili and Gordon were excellent hosts, very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere at the track was exactly as you said, very relaxed and plenty of opportunities to wander around the paddock/pit lane. Service road tours at the track were amazing. Day tours, particularly the desert safari, added a lot too.

[valencia10] I am just writing to say a huge thank you for everything you did at Valencia on Tuesday. We stayed until ...Rossi came out ... and signed my crash helmet. Well worth staying for.

[motegi10] Just to say how much Kenny and I enjoyed Japan. Magali was great and everyone loved her.It was great fun and she even managed to arrange a sunny day...We're discussing which one or two we should go to next year.

[brno10] [Brno, San Marino, Valencia] Hallo Gordon, Pat & Eva,
I finally made it back to Australia, But in some ways I wish the GP season had never ended. Thanks to you all I had a very enjoyable time I hope we can catch up in 2010 & we can do it all again. All the best for Christmas & New Years.

[sachsenring10] Could you just pass on my thanks to Gordon and Eva for a truly wonderful German GP.
I had a fantastic time and I'm already planning for another PP event next year

[assen09] Your guys Patrick and Brett were awesome. Brett went out of his way without blinking an eye to get our tickets to us and Patrick was always willing to put the extra effort to help the guests...

[mugello08] "I have to say this year I have been trying out different companies to see how different people operate and I have to say Pole Position has proven to be the best by far so we will definitely be using you again next year".

[sepang07] Thanks again for a truly amazing race weekend - though it all seems a long time ago already.

[lagunaseca06] Great meeting you at Laguna. Can't thank you enough for hooking us up with the VIP passes. My wife had a great time because of them, and I hope we get to see you at more events down the road. Many, many thanks.

[brno05] Dear Gordon hello!!
I wanted to thankyou for eveything!!
We had a fantastic time and certainly it was the best race till now!!
