For any track activities occurring on the Thursday of the race weekend, we recommend either walking from the train station or taking a local payable bus.


    Taxis go to and from the circuit, and there are plenty of local taxi companies around the area who will be operating over the race weekend! Try to arrange a pickup in advance to avoid a long wait at the end of the day.
