MotoGP 2011 Estoril


I will be staying in Cascais and attending the MotoGP this year and would like some advice in getting to and from Cascais to the Circuit, please. Are there buses or trains and do they run at reasonable times on qualifying and race days? Also what about taxis to and from the circuit or is the traffic too bad? Any advice would be gratefully received, OK for accomodation, but will stay on for the following week.

That's what i've found out about it circuito-estoril.pt/en/….

There are no trains going that way, only to Lisboa.

Traffic is going to be bad, the circuit is close to a commercial area with a big mall and at weekends it's always a bit chaotic.

As you can see, no-one is expected to go by bus!

Bus 417 from Cacais goes past the circuit which is just beyond the Cascais Shopping mall in the direction of Sintra.


There are a lot of other buses to Cascais Shopping but it's well over 2km from the circuit and not an easy walk as there is a rather large motorway interchange in the way.

Check out the satellite view of the area on googlemaps www.maps.google.co.uk and you will see what I mean.

Usually, during the MOTO GP weekend, there is special buses travelling from the CASINO DO ESTORIL area, in Estoril, to the MOTO GP event.

This bus ride takes less than half an hour, one way.

Hiya -we will be going to Estoril for the 4th time this year and we usually get a taxi from the hotel to the circuit in the morning then walk back in the afternoon. It's all down hill on the way back...and straight onto the beach for a beer!

Many thanks for the various bits of info - will probably do the taxi thing from Cascais. Like the idea of walking back and going for a beer, may well roll all the back!!!
