Bavaria City Racing is in Dublin this Sunday, so here’s some travel information you need to know
Bavaria City Racing will undoubtedly be the centre of attention in Dublin this weekend and needless to say, some of the city’s main streets are going to be pretty busy. Here’s some travel information you need to know.
With only four days to go until Dublin becomes the motorsport capital of Europe for a day, we can barely contain our excitement and if you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of people heading along to FREE event, we’re sure you’re feeling the same way too.
With such a volume of fans and with the action taking place on some of Dublin’s busiest streets, there will be a number of traffic restrictions in place in order to facilitate such a brilliant event, so here are a few things to take into consideration.
First off, the best way to get into the city this Sunday is via public transport, although fans should note that Tara Street Station will be closed until 7pm on the day. If you are taking the Dart to O’Connell Street, the Custom House or the F1 Paddock Performance Zones, please travel to Connolly Station and make your way from there.
The schedule of events, which includes Jenson Button driving the bejaysus out of his McLaren Formula One car, kicks-off at 12pm and continues until 5pm on Sunday evening, so fans are advised to arrive well in advance if they want to get the best spots.
Speaking of the best spots, check out the detailed map below to get an idea of where you might want to locate yourself for the day, because you won’t want to miss out on the best views of the Formula One cars, the Superbikes, the other high-performance machines and the bevy of beautiful Bavaria Babes that will be in attendance on the day.
Although you’re probably looking out the window and lamenting the departure of the fine weather, it’s forecast to return this weekend so bring the sunscreen and ensure you avoid joining the mass ranks of Irish people currently walking around with extremely distinctive tan sunburn lines.
If you are driving your car around the city this weekend, take note of the range of traffic restrictions which will be in place, all of which can be viewed here. If you’re on the Twitter machine, be sure to follow BCRD Traffic and AA Roadwatch who will be posting regular traffic updates throughout the day.
Got all that? Good. We’ll see you on Sunday.
Bavaria City Racing comes to Dublin on June 3. The event is FREE to attend, but fans who want to get that bit closer to the action can avail of tickets to the premium performance zones.
