Due to travel restrictions, Motor Sports Travel were unable to attend the inaugural race weekend however, we have just returned and Kuta, the closest town to the Mandalika Circuit is cool…really cool and whizzing around here on a scooter is what a race weekend is all about. The location of the circuit could make it one of the most popular events – it is pretty much a beach front location on the stunning island in Indonesia plus, with the limited accommodation in the area, many of the properties host teams and riders over the race weekend, you never know who you may bump into walking around Kuta.

The next MotoGP race is set to be held on 15 October 2023 and, as always, flights, airport transfers, hotel accommodation and MotoGP tickets are included in our packages and AGAIN FOR 2023 we include Fast Track Security and Airport Lounge access on your departure from the UK, PLUS we also include exclusive Motor Sports Travel Circuit Transfers on Saturday and Sunday, hosted by the MST team.
