Has anyone ever stayed in Sitges and taken the train to the circuit? Thinking of going again in 2013, was there in 2011 stayed in Castelldefels and really enjoyed it, but heard Sitges was better for restaurants, beaches, shopping, hotels, etc.
need info on best places to stay hotels and means of getting to the track might be taking wife with us so making a city break of it. hotel in centre and travel to track how easy is it to get there by train and bus? any info please thanks
I need to know whether it is worth getting a hotel in Barcelona and getting either the bus or train to the circuit, or camping at campingf1 in a pre-erected tent!?
I see tickets are dirt cheap in comparison to Silverstone, so therefore I was thinking of doing grandstand J (the cheap main straight grandstand) then stay at Campingf1 for convenience, but is it very hard to actually get to the circuit!?
very easy and much cheaper than silverstone. 92 pound for a general admission ticket which gives you pit walk thursday grandstand friday general areas sat/sun. buses run from city centre in barcelona to track. think about 9E return
After a fantastic Silverstone trip this year – this Mrs is now hooked!
Pre Silverstone I said – ‘Hey, if we enjoy, we can go next year!’ ‘You got no chance mate!’
…After Friday she was already hooked, regardless of the little wet running!
So I’m looking at Barcelona – it’s so much cheaper than Silverstone!
I’ve got a few great hotel/flight/car hire packages I’ve found on Expedia, and the race tickets seem a bargain.
My only concern is that the 2013 race calendar isn’t finalised… I don’t want to be ending up booking and then the date changing! Especially since the official F1 site (Or Catalunya site) say nout yet…
Getting the real itch to just get on and book though! :D
Might see you there! Adam x
Ok… after Silverstone, Spa and Monza am thinking of trying Spain next year. However not sure whether to drive or fly or hotel or camp. I would appreciate some advice before booking, and would be really grateful if anyone could answer some questions: -
1: – How far is Barcelona and are there regular trains / buses to and from the track, if so how long does it take and how far is the track from the station.
2: – Is the campsite near the track and are there plenty of bars / resturants around the circuit.
Cheers Mark, I was thinking of camping but if Barcelona is only 25 mins away and the transport is regular and good may be a good idea to stay in town. If you could tell me where the trains / buses go from would be a big help in looking for hotels in the vicinity.
Can anyone help me please? I’m thinking of going to 2013 Spanish GP in Barcelona and I’m not too sure of where the best places to say would be. I was thinking Barcelona will more than likely be expensive? I’ll be usuing the public transport rather than car. I would appreciate any help anyone could give me. Thanks in advance.
