Trip advice

General Information
The Automotodrom Brno is set amongst the trees in a forest approximately 15km outside Brno in the east of the Czech Republic; about 200km from Prague.

Pole Position Travel operations are based in Prague, and we know Brno and the Czech Republic intimately. We can take care of you from the time you land, and indeed advise best strategies for getting here. We can book flights as a consultant to your group, we are not IATA agents.

By air
If you are flying from London, Brno-Tuřany Airport is your nearest option, located approximately 18km from the circuit and close to Brno itself. There is a bus to the city centre every 20-30 minutes. Alternatively you could fly in from either Prague (200km away), Vienna (150km), Bratislava (135km). Try www.skyscanner.com for cheap flight options.

Prague to Brno by coach
There are regular train and coach services between the cities. we can arrange a public coach service that will take you from Prague airport, Prague centre, Vienna airport, Vienna centre or Bratislava centre to Brno. It is very cheap and comfortable. Please ask for a quote.

We can also organise private car/minivan service; or even chartered flights or helicopter.

By road
Travelling from either Brno or Prague you will be on the D1 (E50/E65). If you come from Prague use the exit no. 178 (Ostrovačice), or exit no. 182 (Popůvky). If you come from Bratislava or Vienna use the exit no. 182 (Popůvky). Follow the signs to the circuit.

In and around Brno
To get to the circuit, if you are not on our coaches, there is a free coach service number 400 from Mendlovo Namesti. Taxis are possible, but can be expensive (700 CZK / 35 EUR or more, one way) and increasingly they are difficult to get into the circuit on Sunday. We can organise a private car for circuit transport; we provide special parking passes for access.

Brno itself has an excellent tram system - tickets are available at 'Tabak' shops (tobacconists) and newsstands. When you board the tram, you validate the ticket.

At the track
Parking at the large car parks PO (for Ostrovacice) and PZ (for Zebetin) is free, however they are about 2km from the track. There is a free shuttle bus service from the car parks but these can get crowded. PVN is near the entrance by T3, but this fills VERY early (and there is a cost).

We sometimes have space available on our coaches (which go right into the track), please enquire if this is feasible, however first priority is of course to our package customers.
