Coming to round one of the 2019 OVO Energy Tour Series in Redditch, Worcestershire, on Thursday 9 May? Our spectator guide will ensure you won’t miss a thing!

How do I get there?


Regular trains from Birmingham New Street and nearby stations serve Redditch. From the station the circuit is one minute away (bottom of Unicorn Hill); the start/finish line on Church Green West is just a five-minute walk.

Travelling by rail supports the round’s Sustainable Travel Partner WM Railway: follow the #Rail2Redditch hashtag on Twitter for service updates and offers from WM Railway.


Diamond Buses are offering FREE travel to get fans home on race day evening across the 51, 57 and 58 routes.


The roads around the OVO Energy Tour Series circuit will be closed to traffic throughout the day, so fans are advised to park in surrounding streets and walk to the circuit.

Kingfisher Shopping Centre car parks and the ring road are unaffected by the closures.
