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 (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.

This means we can enable you to test the new BMW S 1000 RR on the track!
The cost of a test ride is 20 €.

What to bring along:
Together we will determine in which session you will test the new BMW S 1000 RR on the track.
Then we attend you at the EYBIS pit box 15’ before your test session, where you will be assigned a coach.
After a brief introduction, he will explain the main features of your test motorcycle.
After finishing your test ride you will be "received" by your coach who will be interested in your feedback.
Normally, you can test a BMW during a session of 20' on the circuit.
Renting a BMW for a day or a complete event is usually impossible.
For people who can prove that geographically they come from too far to be able to bring their own motorcycle to our event, we can make an exception.
Concretely this usually means: living outside Europe.
That way, we already could welcome at our events clients coming from:

There is a petrol station in the paddock.
UPDATE: the petrol station is currently out of order!
In the paddock and in the boxes conventional as well as 3-pole (blue) EURO “Camping”-plugs can be used (= of the type “16 AMP two-pole”).

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 :
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.
From the evening before around 19.00
