Motorcycle Track Guide: Almeria

Like London Luton and London Stansted airports, the Almeria circuit is not exactly next door to the city itself; however a thirty minute drive into the Andalucian hills is a small price to pay when you see what a treat you have in store. The challenging Circuito de Almeria, first opened in 2001, has become a popular testing ground for MotoGP, WSB and BSB teams mainly during the off-season. Track days take place all year round although the summer months are less popular as high temperatures make riding pretty uncomfortable.

I’ve ridden nearly every sports bike from 600cc to 1200cc round here and there’s more fun to be had on a smaller bike. The long straights are great for giving an R1 the berries but an R6 will ultimately be more satisfying through the many undulations and twists that make up the bottom part of the circuit.
