This page will give you all the essentials to the MotoGP Gran Premi de Catalunya de Moto GP 2016 in Barcelona. Find out how to travel to the circuit, how to buy your MotoGP tickets and how to prepare for the day.
After Rome, Barcelona is the city in Europe with the largest quantity of motorcycle owners. The relatively small city contains over 300,000 motorbikes. It is, perhaps, for this reason that the Gran Premi de Catalunya de MotoGP is so popular. It may also explain why an impressive selection of its competitors are Catalan.
The Barcelona Moto GP will be staged at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya which is 12 miles (20 km) North East of Barcelona city centre.
The event will take place on 03 - 05 June 2016 .
The easiest way to buy your Grand Prix Tickets is to buy them online.
If you would prefer not to buy your ticket online, it is also possible to buy them from the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya Ticketing Hotline

We have been informed by Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya that the price of the shuttle bus single ticket is between €1.00 - €2.00 each person. The circuit representative could not provide us with an exact price.
Walking from Montmelo train station to the circuit
If you decide not to take a bus from Montmelo station there is a long 45 minute walk to the circuit. We do not recommend this especially as you will be fully exposed to the sun for the entire walk with busy roads along the way.
