The emotion of the speed

San Jordi with its roses, books, and romantic legends is the traditional day for lovers in Barcelona. But for those with a very different kind of love, the love for the fast cars, smoking tires, and high-octane fuel we offer the always exciting Gran Premio de España Santander de Formula One (Spain Grand Prix), which will kick off the European Formula One season May 20-22. Barcelona has hosted the Spanish Gran Prix every year since 1991. Once again Barcelona will be the center of the auto world. An estimated 500 million will be watching throughout the world.

All the big names will be in Barcelona and the circuit is just 12 miles away in the town of Montmelo, where the Circuit de Catalunya is. You can take a super quick and convenient train/bus combination from Passeig de Gracia (2 metro stops from the Hotel Principal) to the races. The qualifying sessions will take place on Friday and Saturday, the big race on Sunday.

The pit lane walkabout plus an autograph-signing appearance will open the Gran Premio de España Santander de Formula One, on Thursday May 19. All fans with a valid ticket or Circuit de Catalunya membership card, are invited to enjoy the first of the four Formula One days.
