Description

The Spanish love their motor sports, and Formula One at Catalunya sees the best drivers in the world compete in one of the most important races in the calendar. Held at The Circuito de Catalunya in Barcelona since 1991, the feel of rumble of the engines is incredible, and large screens ensure you don't miss any turns or takeovers or a glimpse of the Spanish favourite, Fernando Alonso. High speed, high performance and high adrenaline is what you can expect from Formula One. The "formula" refers to restrictions and rules placed by race officials and teams, but don't worry, these machines still reach race speeds reach 360 km/h (220 mph) with engines revving up to 18,000 RPMs and the cars are capable of pulling in excess of 5 G-force through the curves. With this kind of performance it is no surprise F1 is the world's most expensive sport. Race weekends are a spectacle even if you are not an automotive afficionado. Typically the first day is reserved for pit tours and inspecting the machines, the next day is for time trials, and race day is usually on Sundays. Sitting in the audience you'll feel your seat rattle as the cars wizz by and you'll be envied by the nearly 55 million fans watching the race on television.
