HGV heaven as MotoGP rumbles back to Europe

HGV heaven as MotoGP rumbles back to Europe

HGV heaven as MotoGP rumbles back to Europe

The unmistakable rumble of caravans of HGV trucks heading south through Spain earlier this week ground to a halt at the circuit of Jerez, officially announcing the arrival of the MotoGP circus in Europe. After two `flyaway´ trips to Japan and South Africa, the wagons and motorhomes begin their familiar trawl around the continent, providing housing, office space, storage and hospitality to one of the most extravagant sports in the world.

A total of around 250 vehicles have set up camp within the 32,000m² paddock at the Andalucian venue, providing a logistical nightmare for event organisers and IRTA. Approximately 110 HGV trucks are joined by some 40 American style luxury motorhomes and another 100 smaller caravans. It is estimated that parked one in front of the other they would stretch around the entire length of the Jerez circuit.
