Thursday evening in the paddock.
Our traditional Charity party at Valencia always attracts a number of special guests and some incredibly cool unique merchandise for auction in benefit of Down Syndrome Ireland. We have our usual "Irish Invasion" flying in from Dublin, who often bring a star road racer along for the craic! Several riders and other paddock guests are sure to show up; all washed down with unlimited beer/wine and a great buffet. All proceeds from the auction go to charity. Kegs open at 19:30; we wrap up roughly 23:00, but there is always an "after party" where the core group hits the Irish pub... So be warned!

We take over a classic Galician restaurant to celebrate both the end of a great weekend and toast the new world champions. On top of the beer and wine, we sample Galician Queimada from the flaming cauldron brought in for the occasion. The meal is delightful, and after the usual rounds of thanks and congratulations to our sponsored riders the evening devolves into warm and happy haze... Anyone still standing is invited to join us for a little bit of a pub crawl later -- we have been known to end up at the riders' party! We provide the transport from each of our package hotels to the event. Price includes food, transport there and table wine/beer.
Celebrate the end of the MotoGP season! We have been giving a special welcome to our Irish guests since we started in Valencia way back in 2006. Sadly, the leader of the Down Syndrome Ireland bunch, Aidan Lynam, passed away in a motorcycle accident in 2015, but we do what he would have wanted us to do... In both celebration of our long Irish association and in fond memory of our dear departed friend, we have taken a private room at Finnegans Irish bar and inviting all our customers to join us. All package, VIP, Team Experience customers of Pole Position Travel, permanent paddock pass holders & Irish are welcome without charge, just turn up. We do request a cash donatio...More info
