To the Rijeka Circuit

Automotodrom Grobnik

Automotodrom Grobnik is a permanent race track close to Rijeka in Croatia, also known as "Rijeka" amongst the biker community.

The Grand Prix of Yugoslavia was held there between 1978 and 1990.

Action during the 1987 GP of Yugoslavia @ Rijeka

In all those years the GP 500cc was won only by well-known names: Wayne Rainey, Kevin Schwantz, Wayne Gardner, Eddie Lawson, Freddie Spencer, Franco Uncini, Randy Mamola and Kenny Roberts.

In 1988 it was Wayne Gardner who won the GP 500cc

The year that Valentino Rossi was born (1979), his father Graziano Rossi won the GP 250cc.

The track has always been fantastic, but the asphalt has been completely renewed in 2018, making it a real WINNER again!

Beautiful setting - Fascinating track - Renewed asphalt

Rijeka

Rijeka (located 50 km from the circuit) is the third largest city in Croatia (after Zagreb and Split) and the main port city on the Adriatic Sea.

In 2016, Rijeka was chosen as the European cultural capital for 2020. The city is definitely worth a visit.

Download waiver of liability

We will not verify this, it 's only for your own comfort / safety, especially in Spain and Portugal.

VERY IMPORTANT: make sure to have your "European Health Insurance Card" (EHIC) with you. By showing this card, people know - in the domain of health (and injury) insurance - that you're completely covered in your own country and that every other country, that is a member of the European Union, has to give you all the needed care.If you haven't obtained your card from your health care insurance, than :

  • apply for a card immediately;
  • if you cannot receive it in time, ask them to e-mail to you a "Provisional replacement certificate for the European Health Insurance Card" (= 1 page, and this can be done immediately);

A list of "Dangerous sports" that are excluded from "urgent medical care abroad". Usually, "racing with car / motorcycle / outboard engines" is listed. But as we do not "race", our activity is not excluded from any treatment. Check if this is also the case with your insurance, and if it is not, just be sure to get an insurance yourself.

EYBIS has not only a very good insurance as an organiser, but insures also - on every event - all participants with a good TPL (= third partie liability) insurance.

If you have a racing license from your national motorcycle council, be sure to bring it with you.

  • With EYBIS, the Third Party Liability (TPL) insurance is included in your enrolment price since years;
  • Some circuits require a license. The only reason for this is that there is a TPL insurance included in it;
  • Because we provide for all participants - included in the price - such a TPL insurance, a license is not requested during our events and yet you are fully okay;
