Specifications Alcarras Circuit
The circuit has a length of 3743 meters. Is very wide AND safe so ideal for motorcycle trackdays. Because the circuit is built against a hill, you first go downhill and then climb back up until you reach the start-finish straight again, which is the highest point of the circuit. You drive it counterclockwise so that the old tires can be driven on further. The circuit has ten left and four right turns. The biggest challenge is in the double left corner going downhill (turns 6 and 7 in 4th gear). With a width of 14 meters, it gives an extra kick to finish the corner combinations.
Transport of your motorcycle + stuff
The transport is arranged in a professional way so that your motorcycle and belongings are transported neatly. The motorcycle goes on a motorcycle crate that also holds your other stuff. Everything that fits on your motorcycle crate can be taken along. Costs 329,- per motor crate for a return from the Netherlands to Alcarras. Loading and unloading takes place near Zwolle, Oss and The Hague. Zwolle and Oss by invitation only. Please note: limited number of places, so sign up for transport as soon as possible.

The participant is aware that health insurance does not cover repatriation and that travel insurance usually does not cover repatriation when participating in dangerous sports, including motor sports. Racecracks wants to warn the participant emphatically about this. It is up to the participant to take out additional insurance for these costs if necessary. So inquire about travel insurance that agrees with circuit riding and reimburses the repatriation costs. De Europeesche, among others, offers this supplementary travel insurance through an intermediary. Or https://www.speedsecure.nl/info-doorlopen-reisverzekering/
Alcarras is a 1.5 hour drive from Barcelona airport, which means that participants who opt for motorcycle transport can also travel quickly. Reus Airport is a 1-hour drive away.
