The CIRCUIT DE BARCELONA-CATALUNYA was inaugurated in September 1991, just two weeks before its 1st Formula-1 Grand Prix. Located in Montmelo (Barcelona) the circuit of Catalonia is a masterpiece of a modern and well designed racetrack.
It is well-liked by most drivers and so has retained the privilege of hosting the Spanish Grand Prix ever since. The Grand Prix track is a modern road circuit with 8 right-hand and 5 left-hand corners. It includes 3 magnificent sweeping, fast curves, and 2 long, power-sapping straights. There are also two heavy braking areas where F1 cars go from 6th down to 2nd gear.
Being on the doorstep of one of Europe´s great cultural and most fascinating cities is another reason to assist to the next Formula-1 Grand Prix of Spain in Montmelo.
