“Thanks to the Olympic Games, an Olympic park will be created in the area of the lake, the facilities and capacity of which, including the parking lot, will also be available to WorldSBK visitors,” said Zajíček. “That way, we should be fully prepared for the expected large rush of fans.”
The superbike championship will take place in Most from July 19 to 21, i.e. about a week earlier than this year. The Games under the Five Rings in Paris will start on July 26, and the program of the Olympic Festival will also start on the same day. The circuit under Hněvín hosts WorldSBK for the fourth time, this year the biggest Czech motorsport event of the summer attracted 54 thousand visitors. That is a third more than the year before.
“For past races, we have split the entrance fee between the spectator slope and the racing paddock, which has enabled us to make superbikes available to an even wider audience. Around forty percent of the spectators took advantage of the more affordable tickets and watched WorldSBK from the spectator slope. We will keep the level and the entrance fee system for next year in the same regime,” revealed Zajíček, the chairman of the board of directors of Autodrom Most.
A one-day ticket for the spectator slope costs 750 crowns for an adult in advance, and those who want to go to the paddock will pay double. Children’s tickets are more advantageous.

The second highlight of the season, the Czech Truck Prix & NASCAR, will entertain fans on the last holiday weekend from August 30 to September 1. Not only circuit trucks, but also cars from the European NASCAR series and other accompanying series will compete on the race track.
“We want to attract families, and the Czech Truck Prix has always been associated with a rich accompanying program. We have a Truck Fest, this year the audience saw, for example, a performance by Libor Podmol, and for next year we want to offer more family attractions,” Zajíček said.
Among the top three events of the season this year was The Most CLASSIC car festival, which combines races, an exhibition and a meeting of historic cars. Last time, it was watched by almost ten thousand visitors who admired around five hundred historical vehicles of all categories. In 2024, the calendar moves to an earlier date of September 27-29, and organizers plan to offer more time for the public to ride the big circuit. However, there will also be racing cars and competitive rides.
“We are working to make The Most CLASSIC gradually develop into a really big car festival, where both owners, collectors and clubs of historic cars, as well as fans and the public will meet. We are the leading Czech racing circuit and we want to offer everyone the possibilities that the entire area offers,” Zajíček portrayed. This year, the Czech president Petr Pavel also rode in veterans.

“There will be modifications to the control tower, expansion of radio frequencies, and we are constantly improving the surveillance camera system designed by us. Design work on the new medical center has also started,” Jindřich Hrneček, sports director of the circuit, listed the most important modifications.
