Did you know?

 

  • The first Czech Republic FIM Speedway Grand Prix was held in Prague on 17 May 1997, the winner was 2014 world champion Grag Hancock, who went on to win his first title that year.
  • The Marketa Stadium in Prague is the only venue ever used for the Czech Republic FIM Speedway Grand Prix and it will host its nineteenth annual Czech Republic FIM Speedway Grand Prix in 2015.

 

Directions:

Stadium Marketa can be found in the north-west part of Prague, just above the Brevnov Monastry, in a quiet residential area of Brevnov - Prague 6, about 20 minutes via public transport from the city centre.

 

From City Center to Speedway in 15 minutes

The newly opened section of the metro line A makes Speedway fans’ travels around Prague much easier. Travelling from Wenceslas Square to Petřiny takes only twelve minutes these days, with no further need of transfer.

The line A heading to the Nemocnice Motol terminal.

Markéta Stadium is located in the district of Petřiny, therefore it is necessary to get off at a stop of the very same name. Most people would be heading towards the escalators but the speedway fans should aim for the elevators at the opposite side of the platform. Those would bring up the spectators to Brunclíkova Street, which leads right to Markéta. It is approximately three-minute walk between the metro and the stadium.

 

There is also a direct bus connection to the stadium, bus No. 191 from the airport. Nad Markétou bus stop is right next to the stadium.

 

The stadium is also still accessible by tram. Trams No. 22 and No. 25 run to Vypich, whilst No.1 and No.18 go to Petriny. 

From the airport:

Prague Airport. Take bus No. 191 directly from Airport (approx 20mins).

 

By car:

Motorway D5 (E50) from Plzen (Pilsen) Exit: 1/23 (E48) to left Chomutov, Praha. Repy Airport, after 2kms (Exit 26) turn off to right Praha Repy Centrum straight ahead Centrum Brevnov, on 5th lights left.
