Bring a hat or a cap and your sunscreen lotion

The FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX OF BARCELONA-CATALUNYA 2017 program will take place in MAY. We anticipate a warm and sunny weekend, therefore please protect yourself from the summer sun with a hat, a good sunscreen lotion and sunglasses.

Chairs, coolers and other accessories

The organizers reserve the right to prohibit anything onto the site that could be harmful to spectators or participants at the event, including ladders and other folding items. Glass containers are prohibited. In order to free the circulation in the stands and maintain the comfort and security of the spectators, coolers containing beverages or food for personal consumption must fit under the seats in an area with the following dimensions: 22.8 cm (9 inches) height, 45.7 cm (18 inches) length, 25.4 cm (10 inches) depth.

Being an early bird is an advantage

If possible, arrive early in order to locate and reach your grandstand seat. If you hold a general admission ticket, you stand a better chance of enjoying the best view by getting to the site early.

Relax and enjoy your day

Tens of thousands of people will come to the track everyday. Since nobody wants to miss any of the on-track action, food concessions and restrooms will be especially busy between sessions. We ask you to please be patient during these moments. Exiting the site after the race on Sunday will take time, we advise you to relax and visit the beautiful gardens located around the track. You could also find a shady area to unwind while the crowd shuffles out.
