Formula 1 in the Czech Republic in 2020

There are no Formula 1 races arranged in the Czech Republic as of 2020. If you are a Formula 1 enthusiast, you better travel to Hungary or to Austria instead to watch a Formula 1 race there. It is also possible to watch all the Formula 1 races and other sports events online, but that can never be compared to actually watching the Formula 1 races at the Formula 1 track.

But, there was a time when they arranged Formula 1 races in the Czech Republic!

Czechoslovakian Grand Prix

Between 1930 and 1988, there were several Formula 1 races arranged at Masaryk Circuit, a track located in Brno. The name was later changed to Brno Circuit.

Since 1988, there have been no Formula 1 races in the Czech Republic, and nothing tells us that there will be any races arranged in the country in the near future.

But, Brno Circuit is still in use, and every year there are fantastic sports events held here. In other words, you cannot watch Formula 1 on the track, but you can watch other events.

The most important events at Brno Circuit

The most important event at Brno Circuit is the Motorcycle Grand Prix of the Czech Republic. It has been arranged there since 1950, and it is the most famous race in the Czech Republic each year.

The venue has also used for the FIA World Touring Car Championship, FIA GT1 World Championship, Formula Two and the Superbike World Championship.
