Trip advice

General Information
Circuit is located in Cheste, only 20 Km from Valencia and 5 Km from Manises International Airport. There will be parking but has been known to block up with people walking miles to get to the track. Even cars with parking passes have not made it to the circuit due to road blockages.

By air
A few km from the Circuit, Manises International Airport has an important network that connects Valencia with the most important Spanish and international airports. See skyscanner.net or kayak.com for further information about schedules and airlines. Travel to the city centre is then just a short journey by taxi and usually costs around 20 EUR. We can organise airport pickups.
When planning your travel, consider flights to Alicante (closest), Madrid, or Barcelona. It is a simple 3 hr transfer from Madrid for example.

By road
•From Valencia leave via Avenida del Cid and take the A-3 dual carriageway in the direction of Madrid. Continue for 20 km, take exit 334 (Urbanizaciones – Circuito) and soon after you will see directions for the Circuit.
•From Alicante take the A-7 leaving Alicante in the direction of Valencia, take the bypass for the A-3 dual carriageway, direction Madrid, turn off at exit 334 (Urbanizaciones – Circuito) and soon after you will see directions for the Circuit.
•From Castellón - Barcelona. The AP-7 Mediterranean Motorway is the axis of communication for the coastal areas. From both cities you take this motorway in the direction of Valencia, take the bypass for the A-3 dual carriageway, direction Madrid, turn off at exit 334 (Urbanizaciones – Circuito) and soon after you will see directions for the Circuit.
•From Madrid leave Madrid taking the A-3 Motorway, direction Valencia, turn off at exit 334 (Urbanizaciones – Circuito) and soon after you will see directions for the Circuit.

Getting around the city
Valencia city centre is definitely worth a visit. Our Classic and Superior hotels are walking distance to the city centre (c. 40 minutes) however the metro is fast and cheap; and both these hotels have very nearby metro stations. Taxis are not too expensive but you can wait a while for one!
Valentaxi is a small but very reliable firm: +34 675 988 675

Getting to the track
If you are driving, be warned that the main car parks close to the track fill up VERY early - you are likely to end up with a several mile walk. Our VIP and hospitality customers can request a VIP parking pass from us.
It is possible to take a train from Valencia centre direct to Cheste, with just a 10 minute walk to the circuit. The trains can get very crowded, but are very inexpensive.

Pole Position package customers benefit from the usual air-conditioned luxury coach transfers. Coaches are also given priority at Ricardo Tormo and despite the huge attendance, the journey times are excellent. If you are a ticketholder of ours, you can enquire near the race if we have space available in any of our coaches.
