Los Arcos is a beautiful town in northern Spain with some great restaurants. It is, I promise, well worth a visit.
However, a pretty town and a good dinner isn’t what I’m going there for.
I’m going to the Navarra race circuit to spend three days tearing up the track, or at least thinking I am!
Circuito de Navarra is one of Spain’s leading motorsport venues. It’s a 4km track that can hold any class of racing up to World Superbikes.
The circuit has 15 corners, eight of which are left handers and seven right.
The track’s width ranges between 11 and fourteen metres. That’s plenty of room for passing in safety. I know, as I’ve seen plenty fly by my leather-clad self.
The last time I visited I found facilities which were second to none.
The pit garages all have toilets, showers, full power and Wi-Fi.
There’s even a decent café on site and a petrol station just outside the main gate.
As a special treat for people, like me, who love the smell of two stroke, there’s also an impressive 800m karting circuit behind the track. I was delighted to find that it’s open in the evenings after Navarra has itself closed.
The team organise bike transport to and from Dublin and in addition to the track time they also include accommodation as standard.
Numbers are limited as part of the company’s ethos is to allow their clients plenty of space on the track so that they can explore their potential as riders.
I for one can’t wait to shake off the back of winter with this one!
The price for all of this is €1,339, with a €189 deposit securing your slot on the grid.
See www.motocraft.ie to book a slot and I’ll see you there. I’ll be the first person that you pass…!
