MotoGP is currently the most exciting form of motorised sport in the world, forget cars of any kind and the boring F1!
The MotoGP "circus" comes to Brno in the third week of August every year to race on the new(ish) automotodrom to the west of the city near Rosice. The area quickly fills with visitors from all across Europe who all come to watch the racing at this exciting track.
As well as having a track that makes the riders work hard, the contour of the track shows a rise/fall of 74m. For westerners the ticket price is very cheap, the beer is very cheap……

The standard outside the top few clubs is not that good and probably equates to the English Coca-Cola Championship or League One level, certainly not the Premiership with it's £90000 a week players.
Over the year Brno's team have had a a few names, once linked to the muntions factory, Zbrojovka, and then to the BOBY empire when a millionaire arrived from exile and spent loads on the club and the surrounding hotel...
The staium has been upgraded over the year and amazingly you can still buy beer and watch the game with it, a practice outlawed in many countries.
