Here are some useful tips to help you enjoy the MotoGP Brno racing weekend as much as possible.
Use the shuttle bus — There are free shuttle buses from the city centre to the circuit. These do not need to be booked in advance. For more information about the shuttle buses to the Brno Circuit please see this page.
Take your car — There are parking areas next to the circuit, but be aware that traffic can be very slow, especially on race day. Always check the parking provisions prior to driving as you may need to pre-purchase a parking pass. For more information about the parking at Brno Circuit please click here.
To make sure your journey is as quick as possible we do not recommend using a sat nav when approaching Brno Circuit. Instead, follow the signposts that are situated on local roads and on the D1 and D2 motorway. More detailed information about how to get to the Brno circuit by car/motorbike is available here.
Take a Taxi — Taxis go to and from most circuits but traffic can be slow as well. More detailed information about how to get to the Brno circuit by taxi is available here.
Take a GProoms bus — Every GProoms (official accommodation provider during MotoGP Brno) guest can take a special GPbus on his/her way to the circuit. There is a GProoms bus stop by each GProoms hotel. Book your accommodation with GProoms and don't worry about a thing.
Whichever option you choose, keep in mind that a very large number of people will have the same idea as you. Everyone will want to have the best spot to see the Márquez vs. Rossi battle. And everyone will want to leave as soon as possible when the race is over. It can be, therefore, worth staying to allow any congestion to calm or, if you do leave immediately, allow a generous amount of time for your exit.
Mother nature can be unforgiving, so always check the weather forecast before you set out each day. In hot weather do not forget to take a hat, sunglasses and sun cream for your protection, as well as staying hydrated by drinking water... or beer.
No rain has fallen in Brno in the last three years, but you never know! It can be great for the action on-track but make sure you bring waterproofs to stay comfortable and dry. We do not recommend taking umbrellas, as they are not practical at all. Even if rain is not forecast, it can be worth bringing a mac or poncho in your bag, just in case of showers.
As well as dressing for the weather, wear clothing that is comfortable. You may end up doing a reasonable amount of walking over the weekend, both getting to the circuit and within the grounds, so an appropriate pair of shoes can be essential.
If you're staying at the circuit into the late afternoon or evening, the temperature may start to drop. So consider taking a jumper or jacket in case you need it. The same also applies to spectators sitting in higher rows in grandstands, as there may be more of a windchill up top.
Some hospitality areas have some level of dress code, but for most spectators, you're welcome to dress as you wish.
Don't worry, Brno Circuit offers the widest selection of culinary delights and refreshing drinks to keep you well fuelled on your Brno Grand Prix visit! Veggie? Gluten-Free? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
The Brno Circuit prohibits the use of photography and video equipment for anything other than personal use and enjoyment, as there are legal and copyright issues surrounding photography. With this in mind, we recommend you avoid bringing larger, professional-level equipment as this can sometimes raise questions regarding its usage and in extreme cases may prohibit entry. This particularly applies to large telescopic lenses, which can also inhibit the view of other spectators in grandstands.
If you're just taking personal photos using smartphones or standard cameras, then you should be absolutely fine.
If you're in a grandstand, then seating is reserved and not a problem. However, if you have a general admission ticket, then some spectators like to bring their own seats and 'set up camp' for the day.
We also recommend general admission ticket holders think ahead about their position on race day. It can get very busy for the main race, so if you're at the circuit on the previous days, it can be worth having a scout and choosing your spot for the race. Either way, getting there early for the race day can help you to secure a more advantageous view as the most popular areas can fill up quickly.
