F1 Circuit de Catalunya
One of the main attractions for those who visit Barcelona on a regular basis is the famous Formula one circuit of Catalonia (Circuit de Catalunya).For those who are addicted to the high speed races, this place is a dream coming true and it can't be missed.
The circuit was founded in 1991 and was host of the Spanish Grand Prix straight away. Today the course is seen by drivers as quite hard, because the wind direction can change dramatically in a split-second. Over 13 races are going to be running in the Montmeló circuit, of which four are motorcycle races and seven for cars.
