No streets will close
Mexico City authorities have decided not to close streets during the events from Friday, October 30th, to Sunday, November 1st. What they have planned to do is change the direction of traffic on some roads to ensure mobility of the people who live in the surroundings of the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez.
No parking available at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez
This was decided in order to improve the mobility of the 100,000 spectators expected for the three days; instead there will be alternate parking places with direct transportation to and from the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez with a cost of $15 pesos per way. 9,000 spaces have been established and will have a cost between $100 and $150 pesos per day, located in:
