To get from Valencia to the track, what's the best and easiest way?





I'm not going to be able to bring my camping gear with me on this trip, so I need to find a place to stay in Valencia, and will come out to the track on on each day.





This is my first time in Spain. I'm going to be a total newb. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

It's a long shot but, i stayed with this member back in 2006. He and his wife are Brittish expats who live in Valencia. They had a lovely little out building on their property that they rented out. It maybe worth messaging him to see if he still does this. You can say i told you about it. He would have known my ps id as Roger-m and this forum as Motogpforum.com. If you do get in touch i doubt he will know what powerslide or chopperman is lol .I stayed with my wife there back in 2006. They were even willing to drop off and pick up each day but i rented a car.

Commuting by car everyday is a nightmare, just be sure to allow 3 hours to do a 20 min drive, especially on race day.





I believe they also had other expat friends that rent rooms for the same purpose during race weekends.





Edit.


i have just looked through old emails. I do have his email, mobile number and address (if he still lives there) should you wish to give that option a try. Just PM me if you want those contact details.

If we can be of any assistance locally, please feel free to ask.





I don't drive a train or own a hotel but I'll be driving an estate car to the circuit on Friday and leaving on Monday if all goes to plan. We have a spare room in our house and park bikes in the lounge (not in the middle of it) but at about 100kms it's not exactly a stroll to Cheste.





Although it's probably a bit late in the day, if anyone wants to send a tent or something like that, I would be happy to meet and drop whatever at the event.





Happy racing! Weather looking fair at the moment.





Regards,


Chris

Hi Mick,





A "Socio" is a club member so presumably not applicable. The 'DNI' is a national identity number but if you change the page to English (UK) that field updates to passport number. I'm not sure about the motor-home thing but I guess if you're not taking a motor-home you would select car or motorbike as applicable. "3d" would just indicate that you selected the three day pass.


Look out for a black VW Passat at the campsite!





Regards,


Chris

Hi Chris, I'll gave that anothergo...but every time you change it to English it goes back a page and back to Spanish ?! Weare taking a campervan....flying onto Barcelona and collecting a VW T4 from Chilli campers at the airport and driving down, hence the 'motorhome' tickets...If I ever get sorted I'll let you know if you have any other idea's they would be greatly appreciated bud, maybe even a bacon sarnie !!





If we do get in look for a white T4 with a funny roof,!!

Hi Mick,


I tried this myself and I see the problem but I'm not sure of the answer. I booked for a car and two people so I didn't really pay any attention to the motorhome options. I can offer two explanations; either the booking form is up the creak or the motorhome option is only available for club members and the membership needs to be verified by entering a DNI number. The second idea is obviously daft but this is Spain!


All I can suggest is give the circuit a call or send an email. I got a reply from info@circuitvalencia.com (in English). The phone number seems to be: (+34) 902012899 although I haven't tried that. If I can help at all, please email direct to: chris(at)panoalto.com. Maybe I'll pop up there in the week and bang a few heads together.


Regards,

Chris

I'll let you know tomorrow if we get sorted one way or another, worse case we'll have to park in a pub car park and have to rough it !!


Thanks again

Glad you got some advice there mate. I remember when i went it was all very confusing with what entrance i was supposed to go in through. I didn't camp so couldn't offer you any advice on that. Hope you get it sorted but by the sounds of it you have a B plane ready just in case.


I hope all those going have a great time. I have a feeling its going to be an epic historic race in the making. Hopefully you will all take plenty of pictures and post them up here for the rest of us to enjoy.
