The circuit, inaugurated in 1999 with a Grand Prix race, is located in the village of Cheste approximately 30km from the city of Valencia, and was built in such a way that 65,000 spectators, the grandstand capacity, can follow the entire circuit thanks to the stadium-like layout and the track’s particular configuration.

The circuit is quite small, measuring 4.005 kilometers (2.489 miles) and has five turns to the right, eight to the left and an 876 metre long straight (0.544 miles).

Yonny Hernandez took advantage of the brief stop following the long and difficult tripleheader, to regain strength and mobility in his right hand, injured during the Australian Grand Prix weekend. The indications of the Mobile Clinic together with physiotherapy sessions and a well-deserved rest have helped Yonny prepare for the final event of the year.

Yonny Hernandez – Ignite Pramac Racing Team: “I'm glad to be here because I haven’t ridden on this track for two years and I want to try the new asphalt. My finger doesn’t hurt very badly and I would really like to have a good race. During the week’s rest, I did physiotherapy and some training but of course I couldn’t ride the bike.

However, I feel good. The track is not one of my favorites, it’s technical but different from most of the tracks we go to. Once again I hope to find a good bike set-up as soon as possible in order to be relaxed about everything and fight to get a good position in Sunday’s race.”
