Circuit Ricardo Tormo, inaugurated on September 19, 1999, has become a benchmark on the international motorsport scene over the course of its history. Its location in Cheste, close to Valencia, has mild winters, making it an excellent choice for car and motorbike testing. The circuit is made up of 14 turns and a number of straights, the longest being 876 meters in length. The idea behind its design is a circuit inside a stadium. In fact, it is possible to see the entire track from all of 65,000 seats in the stands, without missing out on any of the action.
