WE are pleased to announce that Almeria’s largest daily La Voz De Almeria and Spanish Radio Station Cadena Sur are joining forces with Spectrum FM and The Euro Weekly News, the two biggest English language media in Spain in becoming promotional partners for The Almeria Festival of Speed.
The event takes place at The Circuit of Almeria, Tabernas on Friday 29th June.
This event will equally appeal to the Spanish and English language sections of the area and it a great way to integrate our communities’ said La Voz De Almeria’s Guillermo Rubio after the announcement.
Members of The Voz de Almeria Club will receive a 25 per cent discount on entry into the track day as will friends of Spectrum FM Costa Almeria and Euro Weekly Newspaper on Facebook as a thank you for their support.
The Festival of Speed is now truly an international event and we have entries from all parts of Spain for both the track day and display.
Remember you do not need to own a super-car to enter the track day section of the event.
There will be professional drivers/riders and instructors to teach you about racing lines, apexes and braking points.
The cost for 8 hours track time with unlimited laps is €150 for cars, €100 for bikes.
At the end of the day there will be ‘The Hot laps’ event where one car and bike will win The ‘Almeria Festival of Speed trophy’ to keep for the year.
For an entry form or more info please telephone me on 678 332 815 or email [email protected]
If you wish just to display your car or bike in the paddock area this is completely free of charge but all must be entered prior to the day due to space limitations.
There are also a limited number of trade stands available (€100-€200 dependant on size) and banners that will be displayed on the main straight (€50).
Both of these give access with one guest into the VIP area.
