Drive an F1 Barcelona GP circuit, Spain


The Circuit De Barcelona-Catalunya just a few kilometres outside the famous city of Barcelona is the well-established home of the Spanish Grand Prix and has been host to some fantastic races over the years. It is also the preferred circuit for pre-season testing. This year is the 30th anniversary for the circuit which saw Nigel Mansell winning that first GP back in 1991. The location benefits from excellent weather conditions with the track offering a challenging mix of twisty sections, fast sweeping bends, slow corners and fast long straights plus a variety of elevation changes. The cars streak past the pits virtually flat-out treating spectators to that incredible sound that only F1 cars can make. The circuit features a mix of fast and slow corners, a long straight and a variety of elevation changes.

The La Caixa corner offers one of the many challenges with the F1 drivers braking from over 300 km/h on the Campsa straight into this, the slowest point on the track, with a cornering speed at just 90 km/h.  The long right hander, Renault, sees F1s accelerating up to 280 km/h as they exit and the long, long pit straight gives the opportunity to max out the car with the F1 cars hitting 325 km/h.

The 4.6km lap has 16 corners and the lap record is held by Valtteri Bottas who posted 1:18.18 in the 2020 GP. Schumacher and  Hamilton tie on 6 victories 

Of course, another advantage is the closeness to Barcelona itself. The track is around 30 minutes away from the city and the airport offers many international direct routes. Barcelona needs little introduction.

Vibrant and filled with outdoor markets, restaurants, busy bars and nightclubs as well as museums, churches, the Gothic old town and the breath taking work of Antoni Gaudi – plus of course, a white sandy beach – this Spanish city has a distinct flavour all of its own.

This kind of events for car is extremely expensive and often too fake/posh. But this one for bikes is extremely reasonable, even cheap I will say and it's a familly. The road books are the best I've ever had. I've just done 3 Cannonballs, and they were all different and all great. The organisers are far better than they look.
