The location of the track site

Motorcycling is everything here. Look at MotoGP - Spain hosted four of the 18 races in 2014.

Eduardo Pintado, Commerce Counsellor for Tenerife, believes that the design for the proposed Tenerife Island Circuit gives it the potential to host races at the very highest level.

He believes that this is because TN y GPO, the firm that designed the circuit, has perfected the art of crafting a track that suits both car and motorcycle racing.

TN y GPO is based in Barcelona, an area known for its love of motorcycle racing, and this has inspired the firm to create MotoGP stalwarts Circuit Montmeló (Barcelona) and Circuit Ricardo Tormo (Valencia).

Eduardo’s passion for motorsport stems from his career in rallying in the 80s, but is not confined to racing on four wheels.

“Although my personal history is in car racing, I cannot deny the huge importance of motorcycle racing to Tenerife and to Spain as a whole.

“Motorcycling is everything here. Look at MotoGP - Spain hosted four of the 18 races in 2014.

“The Tenerife Island Circuit is very, very well designed for motorcycle racing, but that’s only one half of the story. The consistently good climate and the beauty of our island make it a perfect destination for professional and amateur riders alike.”

The location of the circuit is one of its most important assets, as it is located only 2.5km from the Aeropuerto de Tenerife Sur.

The south of the island, where the circuit is located, enjoys year-round sunshine. It also contains Adeje and Abona, which, combined, welcome 78% of the island’s visitors. Both of these destinations are within 15km of the Tenerife Island Circuit.

Eduardo is confident of the success of the proposed circuit: “We look forward to hosting motorcycle races of the highest level in Tenerife. I will be proud to see our island making a contribution to the motorcycling history of Spain.”
