Wow - it is finally here! We took a field trip to the first MotoGP Test at the Kymiring in August: walked the track, visited many hotels, set up the tour. We are super keen on this one and so you should be! You only get one chance to be at the first event! Accommodation is scarce, so we cannot take large numbers, book soon!
2020 sees the long-awaited return of MotoGP to Finland.
The event promises to be very exciting. We visited the track and area in August 2019, walking the entire circuit. The circuit has been hewn from a hilly forested area - the track was originally totally covered by pines. With exciting corners, elevation changes, a huge straight, and many superb viewing points, we are looking forward to a great visitor experience.
Accommodation near the track is scarce -- there are only 4 hotels within 20km of the circuit; so we have chosen to base in the lovely port town of Kotka - just under 1 hour from the track.
You are spoiled for choice. If being in the heart of the town, within walking distance to many good pubs and restaurants is your thing, we have secured the best hotel in the entire region, the 4* Seurahuone for our Superior package. On the other hand, nestled right on the water in the outskirts of town lies the stunning Santalahti resort, where you can take a room in one of our luxury apartments or choose your own private cozy cottage. Perfect for families and biker groups! Both packages include 4 nights (or more) B&B, 3 days track transfers, opening reception and dinner Friday, and closing BBQ dinner Sunday for the Resort package (optional extra for Superior)
At the track, we are pleased to offer a full range of experiences, from standing and grandstands, to top VIP in the MotoGP VIP VIllage. Or opt for in-paddock experience with a MotoGP team or our Pole Position Club with a Moto2 team.
Friday evening we kick off the inaugural GP of Finland with some special guests from the paddock and a rider or two.
Our packages are based about 90 minute drive from Helsinki Airport (HEL). We can organise a private car to collect you, or you can join a shared van for considerably less cost (may involve a small wait at airport as we consolidate flights). But if you really want to do this right, join us Wednesday in Helsinki for our special Helsinki Excursion and Transfer. We stay in a top rated 4* hotel in the city, where you will enjoy a welcome drink, guided tour of Helsinki, Finnish dinner, and in the morning we take you door to door to your package hotel.
Hope to see you there! Remember there is only one opportunity to be first!*
*and of course all package customers will get one of our coveted "Inaugural MotoGP of Finland" polo shirts!
