The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is not only a classic circuit, it’s also next to the stunning Mediterranean city of Barcelona to create an ultimate fan experience like no other. A perfect city break mixed with a perfect trackside experience at the world-leading venue makes for a thrilling weekend
The 2017 Catalan GP made it double delight for Andrea Dovizioso, as the Ducati Team rider followed up a stunning home win at Mugello with another victory. The man behind him was key title rival Marc Marquez, and the Repsol Honda rider kept it together after a weekend spattered with crashes. His teammate Dani Pedrosa impressed once again in third, and it was another tough weekend for Movistar Yamaha as they struggled for traction. In Moto2™, Alex Marquez once again reigned on home turf, keeping EG 0,0 Marc VDS on top and destroying the field. In the lightweight class, that familiar name rang out: Joan Mir, another home hero winning on home turf.
Experience the perfect mixture of MotoGP™ and the Mediterranean with a weekend at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, in the stunning city of Barcelona.
About the circuit
In 1989, through the joint collaboration of the Catalan Autonomous Government, the Montmeló Town Council and the Royal Automobile Club of Catalunya (RACC), work began on giving one of Europe’s most beautiful cities a state of the art race track to match. The Circuit de Catalunya opened on the doorstep of Barcelona in September 1991 and welcomed its first international event that same month, hosting the Spanish F1 Grand Prix. It went on to host the European Motorcycle Grand Prix and in 1995 became home to the Gran Premio de Catalunya. Considered to be one of the best designed circuits of the recent era, the Circuito de Catalunya won the much coveted IRTA ‘Best Grand Prix’ trophy for 2001 and has a general admission capacity of 104,000 spectators.
