THE EVENT

The circuit
The Moto Grand Prix of Catalunya is hosted by the Circuit de Catalunya, located approximately 25 km north of the famous city of Barcelona in Catalonia, Spain. The circuit is a testing hotspot for motorsport teams, mainly because of its centralised European location and temperate climate. The circuit also plays host to a variety of other motorsports events throughout the year, including Formula 1 and Sports Car racing.

The Circuit de Catalunya justifiably deserves its reputation as the best run circuit in MotoGP. It has it all – a great track, superb facilities and possibly the best viewing experience of the season. The 4.7km notorious bumpy circuit offers an exciting mix of curves, elevation changes, and long straights, making it a demanding challenge for engineers and drivers alike. The fantastic long straight along the main grandstands makes for one of the most famous start/finish lines in all of MotoGP racing.

Race tickets
We have included a race ticket choice of Main, A, B, C or H grandstands in our tour package, but subject to availability we can offer you any other grandstand of preference.

The Main grandstand offers great start/finish and podium views and is covered, which can be a blessing in the Catalonia sun. Grandstand A is located on the exit of Turn 1 which is a critical acceleration point – however you may see more action from grandstands B and C located on the great north loop. Grandstand H offers possibly the best general viewing, looking up to the north loop and down into the final corner. Finally the infield grandstand M is both covered and a good base for further wandering. You may also upgrade to grandstand F for the notorious Turn 1 race opening action.
