Valencia hosts MotoGP's epic season finale
It’s only fitting that Spain traditionally hosts MotoGP’s final round. A country that’s mad about motorbikes, the third and final race in Spain takes place at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo. The incredible stadium setup of the grandstands, with views stretching the entire circuit, lends itself perfectly to a fitting stage for the final race.
The 4km circuit is a racer’s dream. A long straight on which the bikes reach speeds of 337km/h, followed by hard braking zones and countless overtaking opportunities to lift the 150,000 fans to their feet. A uniquely Spanish atmosphere runs through the grandstands, as they cheer the likes of Marc Marquez, Maverick Viñales, Pol Espargaró and new world champion Francesco Bagnaia to victory. Moto2 and Moto3 also reach their conclusions, and the last chance for tomorrow’s stars to prove themselves on track.
Fingers will be crossed for a second consecutive title showdown after Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia scooped his first world title in 2022’s final round. Fans will also have extra reason to celebrate in 2023 as the series’ brand new sprint races conclude here too. Valencia itself is renowned for its buzzing nightlife around mazing streets filled with bars, cafes and restaurants.
