    I’m all booked for the last test in Barcelona, fingers crossed it will be a bit warm and we will see a fair bit of car action as it’s the last test before Oz. Flying out first thing Thur and back on Sun evening, so should be at the track all 4 days. I’m not the least bit excited ;-P

    Mmmm, tempted by the Mugello one. Will definitely be warm by then, and I guess that’s the time of year the San Marino Grand Prix used to take place. There may be a break between races then – who knows whether the Bahrain race will actually happen?

    I’m looking at going to the Barcelona test in march. Cheap as chips style but finding info a little difficult to find and the ball ache of getting to the track from Barcelona city centre! But having said that I really want to see these 2012 cars. Anybody else thinking of going?

    I shall be heading to the final test….. £30 for return flight with ryanair and the circuit is cheap to get to from Barcelona using the train….

    @steve: from barcelona you get the train that came from the airport heading to Granollers central…. Get off at montmelo and then it is about 20min walk to the circuit…. Really easy to find. The train is also really cheap, you can get 10 trips for €7.

    Barcelona sounds easy to get to without a car, great for someone who isn’t old enough to rent a car! I don’t fancy a 1000 mile drive to Spain, I won’t be going this year but I’m tempted to go next year.

    is there anything to see at a test?

    I always thought it would be like watching a free practice session, except spread out over more time.

    We decided to stay up coast rather than Barcelona. we are staying in Calella, which is a crappy sea side resort 40min drive from the track. As it’s the oppisite dircetion than Barcelona there is no real traffic and it’s easier to find parking. It’s also really cheap, we are staying in an all inclusive double room for a single person three nights £102!!! that’s a 4+ star hotel, there were 3 star even cheaper!

    @lamo2741 £30 for flight!!! I hoped we would be able to get something like that, but ended up paying £80 with easyjet. We booked back in Oct last year, and the same flight is now going for £160!!

    Hi everyone ! I’ll be at the last test in Barcelona, and I’m looking for a kind person to bring me to the circuit (I’ll pay for the fuel). I’ve not booked my hotel yet. Thanks for your help, Irfane.
