F1 Barcelona Test
F1 Barcelona testing is going to be smoking hot

By Paul Yates

Wait for the best bit. Whether you're a F1 addict or a novice who just wants to understand what all the fuss is about, the daily entry price to the circuit is small. It covers entry to the circuit and seating in the grandstands so I can't think of a better place to do my sunbathing.

Entrance fee: €8.10 - €16.20
Daily from: 10:00 - 12:00 Noon

Transport to the Circuit

It is important to remember that the shuttle buses from Barcelona or from Montmelo train station do not run on test days. The Circuit is not particularly easy to get to so it is worth planning in advance.

You can catch the train from either Barcelona Sants, Passeig de Gràcia or Clot rail stations in Barcelona centre. You will then need to get off at Montmelo station which is the nearest stop to the Catalunya F1 race circuit.

Train Tickets, may be purchased from any of the rail stations mentioned above. Montmelo station is in Zone 2, which means you will not be able to use the Zone 1 T-Casual card. However, if you intend to see the Grand Prix for all three days consider buying the Bonotren ticket zone 2 ticket (see pricing details below).
