Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya: New paddock


At the end of November 2021 it became known: The Spanish Grand Prix will remain on the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya until 2026. The prerequisite for the contract extension was to modernize the 1991 racing facility.

In November 2021 Josep Lluís Santamaría, Managing Director of the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, proudly announced: The Spanish Grand Prix will remain on the Catalan racetrack, which opened in 1991, until 2026.

The prerequisite for the new five-year agreement was that the system, which is almost 31 years old, had to be modernized. This includes a rebuilding of curve 4 with a larger run-off zone, here a boundary wall has been torn down in the past few days, as the latest pictures show, which the slope operators have posted on Twitter.

The paddock is also currently being torn up in order to lay new lines.

The Formula 1 winter tests 2022 will begin on February 23 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

The circuit was built in the late 1980s and early 1990s on the initiative of the Catalan regional government, the Royal Catalan Automobile Club and the city of Montmeló. Today it is run by a private company, under the control of the Economic Department of the Autonomous Community of Catalonia.
