Moto GP Valencia – Ricardo Tormo Circuit Cheste
Circuit de Valencia (officially named Circuit de la Comunitat Valenciana Ricardo Tormo) is a motorsport race track located in Cheste (Valencia, Spain) and built in 1999. It has a capacity of 120,000 spectators and seating for 60,000.
It is often used as a test track by the Formula One teams, because of the mild temperatures in winter, and in recent years has become the first official test where the Formula One teams launch their new car for the coming F1 season.
The track hosts the Moto GP Valencia Grand Prix.
The circuit was basically made for the public. It was studied and built so that no matter where you sit you can pretty much see the entire track. It is a tight, twisty layout which is often used for Formula 1 tests because of these technical characteristics and the mild local climate. In the pit complex there are 48 garages and the circuits grandstands can accommodate 150,000 spectators. This clever positioning of the grandstands means that no matter which ticket you buy you will be able follow the whole race without having to rely on the circuits TV monitors.
The track is named after Spanish Grand Prix motorcycle racer Ricardo Tormo (September 7, 1952 – December 27, 1998).
