Spain is the third most popular tourist country in the world, and it’s not hard to see why. Mediterranean beaches, sangria in the sun and paella by the plateful. What will never change is the Spaniards’ passion for partying. Snack on tapas as you skip from bar to bar, before heading off to enjoy Spain’s infamous nightlife. A magnificent backdrop to your 2016 Spanish Grand Prix tour!

Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix

Until 1991 the Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix was hosted by a number of different racing circuits in Spain, including the historic Jarama, Jerez, Montjuich Park and Pedralbes circuits. During 1991 however, the Circuit de Catalunya at Montmelo (just 20 km north of Barcelona) became the permanent home of the Spanish Formula One GP. Originally planned to host its first ever event in 1992, to coincide with the Barcelona Olympic Games, it was actually put into service a year earlier, during 1991.

Like many other European circuits, the Circuit de Catalunya also underwent significant safety changes during 1995, following the Imola tragedies (Senna and Ratzenberger) the previous year. Prior to the arrival of racing circuits like Sepang and Bahrain, the Circuit de Catalunya was the epitome of a modern Formula 1 race circuit. The warm sunny Mediterranean climate of Barcelona makes the racing circuit a favourite with drivers, teams and spectators. So please remember to pack a cap, suntan lotion, sunglasses and an umbrella.

The Circuit de Catalunya is well known for its superb amenities, great views from all around the track, as well as it’s 14 bigscreen TV monitors, on which you can follow the close-up detail of the race. The Barcelona Formula One circuit boasts 14 grandstands, with 65,000 seats, of which 16,000 are covered. Its exceptionally long main straight, allows for breathtaking speeds and impressive viewing for the fans. The circuit is very popular as a winter testing venue with the teams, because it usually blessed with the best winter weather in Europe. Its layout also provides a good baseline for evaluating several aspects of a car’s performance. The Barcelona GP usually provides the best indication of the relative performance of the Formula 1 teams for the rest of the season.
