SVK - SLOVAKIA
DOLNý HRIČOV
Description Circuit used for national motorbikes events with decent international participation. From 1998 to 2000 it hosted motorcycle Slovak Grand Prix, then organizers were nonsensically accused of enriching themselves and also there was a general decline in airport races, so racing stopped there.
Location Dolný Hričov - Žilinský kraj - Stredné Slovensko
Location Žilina Airport, approx. 10 km - 6 mi West of Žilina. Up to 1992 it was in Czechoslovakia
