Andalucia Circuit beckons for Irish riders

Andalucia circuitSpain’s southernmost region is home to a circuit that is as stunning as it is challenging. A testing ground for tyre manufacturers, WSB crews and BSB racers, the track will this autumn play host to us, everyday Irish riders.

The Andalucia circuit in southern Spain is nothing short of spectacular.

It’s located in the desert with a mountain range for a backdrop.

This pretty much assures a dry track every day of the year.

A circuit with a challenge, it offers up no fewer than 17 corners, 6 left-handers and 11 right-hand over its 4.2 kilometre length.

This is combined with a straight that’s just over a kilometre long.

The changes in elevation make for heaps of fun lap after lap.

Overtaking is made a whole lot easier with the track being up to twelve metres wide.

Because of the weather Andalucia is a winter haunt for people who want to set up their bikes and equipment.

Tito Rabat cut his teeth here, collaborated on the track’s design and still uses the circuit as a training ground.

Tyre manufacturers, BSB teams, WSB crews and, of course, Moto GP riders all use Andalucia as a test circuit.
