On the Thursday pit walk we used the train. You need to take the train from Passeig de Gracia to Montmelo and then it literally is a 30 minute walk to get to the track! I would recommend trying to get a taxi from outside the station or there is a shuttle a short walk into the town which costs 2 euros and it takes you to about 10 minutes outside the circuit entrance.

For qualifying and race day we traveled via the Sagales coaches and I would say this is definitely the best option. Tickets cost 9 euros per person for a round trip and the coaches are very constant electricity japan and run from early in the morning (7.30am) to about 12.30pm going there and then the return journeys start from about 1pm till about 6pm. There is a slight queue in the mornings however you can buy all your tickets in one go so that you don’t have hp gas online registration to queue for tickets each day. The coaches take you from Barcelona city center to the entrance of the circuit and it is a very comfortable journey. On race day the queue for the coaches back was long but they are constantly loading up coaches and sending them on so you’re probably looking at about an hour… I have just returned from the Barcelona Grand Prix where although the result was disappointing (I’m a Lewis fan!), the experience itself was great.

Facilities in the circuit are good, there are plenty of food options but beware everything is very expensive! A large beer is 11 euros and a sandwich is about 5 euros. There are plenty of toilet facilities and they were as clean as can be expected. We watched from stand L which had fantastic views but there was no cover so do remember to take sunscreen and wear a hat as it does get very hot! Overall I’d say that the Barcelona grand prix was a great experience and one I would definitely look at doing again in the future. More Show less

Brilliant 4 days at Circuit de Catalunya. Very well organised and albeit 84000 people there you electricity 220 volts wiring wouldn’t know it as the grounds were kept clean and queues were kept down. We went for the Thursday pm pit walk which was superb in that I got 2 driver autographs and some fab photos of Jensen Button and Lewis Hamilton. Recommend you join the queue for this about 3 and a half hours early as it really is a rugby scrum and if you’re not the assertive type there’s no point in going to it. The temperature along the pit lane was oppressive with so many bodies however if you don’t mind pushing your way through ‘politely’ I hasten to add as people weren’t rude gas 02, just very keen its worth a go and it’s free ( also to park on this day) Parking for the remaining 3 days was 30 euros paid there and then. Suggest parking up early, especially on race day as queuing to get in and out does get lengthy. Refreshments facilities ample although expensive as you would expect. Numerous supermarkets around Barcelona to buy your lunches and beers and wines (must be in plastic bottles- strictly no cans or glass- you will be searched and sent back out to the back of the queue to get in again if you ignore this ( even energy drinks are refused in cans) Smoking is permitted in the circuit and in the stands. Buy your official merchandise from electricity shock in the body the official F1 site before going as t-shirts are anything from €50 upwards. Toilets are porta cabins as well as permanent and there didn’t appear to be a wait beyond 5 mins at any time. Meh porta cabins are kept clean and plenty of paper however take your own wet wipes as no sinks in these. We had incredibly good seats in Stand L where we had a great view of the 1st and 2 other turns and could see them coming down the main straight. These really were great seats(no cover so must have hat and sun cream and long sleeve and trousers as the sun exposure is extreme even though 21 degrees people were burning to crisps! I’m a sun person and had to cover up. We sat in row 47 seats 7 and 8 which as said were superb, would probably go down a few rows next time. Ear plugs a must especially low down near track as ears were still buzzing 8 hours later! Suggest getting mini radio electricity lesson plans 8th grade and tune into local frequency as the cars are SO loud you struggle to hear the commentator. Also recommend a seat pad for a long time sitting as also GP racing and super cars going on so not unusual to spend a whole day at the track. You can sit anywhere on grass which have some great views and move wherever you like although you will find restrictions to access stand entrances without he appropriate pass. This really was a superbly organised event by the Spanish which I have to compliment them on all round as I have never been to a major event in the UK which could come anywhere near it. The cleanliness, friendliness, lack of queues, clean toilets and general access to the circuit were fabulous and I we think it was worth every penny – in fact already planning next year. Once you’ve seen it for real the TV doesn’t compare! We stayed in Barbera del Valles gaz 67 – perfect for circuit by car.
