Barcelona is known for its art and architecture, but the Formula 1 drivers are looking to create masterpieces of their own at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
With good weather all but guaranteed, some of the world's best cuisine and a beach to relax on, it is no wonder the Spanish Grand Prix is one of the most popular on the Formula 1 calendar.
Why go to the 2024 Spanish Grand Prix?
Barcelona is a city like no other. Tourists flood to the Catalan capital in increasing numbers each year, drawn by the beach, the stunning architecture of Antoni Gaudi and some of the world's best restaurants.
It is also one of the most important cities globally when it comes to sport. The football team has arguably become more famous even than the city, but Barcelona is also one of the motorsport capitals of the world.
Taking place before the arrival of what can be unbearable summer heat, the Spanish Grand Prix enjoys June temperatures around a pleasant 27°C. Most visitors opt to combine a race weekend with a longer stay in the city - and why wouldn't they? From seeking out Gaudí’s stunning buildings, to relaxing on one of the many beaches, there's something for everyone.
Formula 1's two Spaniards, Fernando Alonso (Aston Martin) and Carlos Sainz (Ferrari), will draw the home crowds and create a buzz for the homecoming heroes. Both will be hoping to produce faultless performances in front of an adoring home crowd when the Spanish Grand Prix returns in 2024.
