The Barcelona-Catalunya route is located in the town of Montmeló, next to Barcelona. Surprised or not, but since 1991, it has never left the calendar of “Formula 1”. Let’s take a look behind the scenes of the most prestigious auto racing competitions in the world.
Every year, the Barcelona-Catalunya race track welcomes over 95,000 visitors, pouring around 120 million euros into the local economy. Over the last 27 years, the track has brought fans of the sport a wealth of memorable moments, with Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso gracing the track, as well as Mika Hakkinen, Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell. To take in the full size of the installations, we will also visit areas normally closed off to spectators, such as the press area where up to 800 accredited journalists huddle in to cover the Grand Prix. We will also visit the boxes, with their smell of burnt rubber, and make our way up to the command stands, where the team technicians oversee the race. We can also visit the Paddock Club, where visitors can get closer to their famous drivers. After all that, you’ll get the opportunity to sit at the wheel of a Formula 3 race car with 240 horsepower and that can reach 100 kilometres per hour in mere seconds! Prepare for an adrenalin rush!
