Train to Motogp track in Estoril, Oct 29/10 wkend

Travelling to Estoril for Motogp race and not wanting to rent car until after the race. Is it easy to catch train from Lisbon airport to Estoril area, and then daily, transfer between hotel to racetrack.

There are quite a few packages available for fans which include tickets, transfers between track and hotel, but if we can do trains that might be best. Any suggestions of seaside hotels would be welcomed.

hi that is going to be a major problem as the track is NOT connected to the railway network.

best bet and cheaper than a rental car is taxi about 10euro each way from estoril or cascais railway station.

get agreement on price or ensure meter is running 10 - 12 euro each way is MAX you should pay.

cheers

Thanks for your advice. Likely will rent car from Airport and then just do taxi between accomodations in Cascais and track. Have rented a small studio, which hopefully is fairly close to restaurants and marina etc. in Cascais. Address is Ocean Cascais 1, Rue Gomes Freire L1?? Any comments you might provide would be welcomed. Looking forward after the races, to spending two weeks wandering Portugal and Spain. Any suggestions of what we don't want to miss?? Thanks for your assistance. debj
