European Grand Prix in Valencia
Dotted inland along the Mediterranean coast, hotels H2 Castellón, Olympia and Vora Fira each present motor fans with a retreat from the fierce and exhilarating assault on the senses that is the European Grand Prix. The F1 circuit in Valencia’s Alboraya district winds its way past a variety of city attractions, putting drivers, engines and rubber through their paces around more than five miles of twists, turns and hard knocks in the inner harbour basin.

Approximately 13km from the track it boasts a pool and gardens, as well as a restaurant and cafeteria. Hotel Olympia is only about a 6km journey from the action and is situated opposite the Metro station. An indoor pool, gym and relaxing spa are all contained within the swish hotel’s walls.
The Grand Prix
Surveying the action from the Grao balcony, motorheads can take in the smell of burning rubber and the sounds of exhilarating engine symphonies. As the cars whizz past, spectators will catch glimpses of drivers as they try to gain pole position around the 5.4 km street circuit, set against the port of Valencia. After pre-race warm-ups and qualifying sessions, Sunday will see the drivers take their places on the grid for race day, when the wheels and competition really hots up. From lights out right through to the chequered flag and Champagne-popping podium finish, crowds can take in every single twist, turn, tumble and wheel spin along the way.
It’s worth taking a pair of earplugs to give your senses a break from the roar of the impressive engines.
