Valencia to test new circuit in July

The Valencia street circuit will be hosting a round of the Spanish Formula 3 and International GT championships a month before the Formula 1 race to test the circuit facilities and ensure that everything is perfect for when the F1 circus hits the new track for the very first time.

“These races will be a test for the asphalt, the track, the access, and all the installations for the track in general,” Fernando Roig, president of promoter Valmor Sports explained. “Besides which, the racers will become the first to drive on the Valencia Street Circuit!”

Over 20,000 spectators are expected to turn out for the events which take place next month.
