    I haven’t got my tickets yet and a little worried. I bought them from Travel Republic in the 3rd round. Has anyone else bought tickets that late through them? I’m not panicking yet, but if they are not here by Friday next week I will start to panic!!

    I did last year Louise and it I remember it was fairly late, I remember worrying and phoned them and then postman knocked. If your worried ring them and ask if they can give you a date

    Just been given some tickets for my birthday by my wonderful wife – can’t wait!

    But, I have no idea about certain bits, my wife even less so.
    Where can I get the public transport from in Barcelona?
    Is there public transport to take you to the airport straight after the race?
    Can anyone recommend a hotel?
    If I hire a car is there ample parking?
    Is GA as packed as Silverstone?

    Thanks in advance

    Chris, same for me, but I knew at Xmas. I doubt you’ll find an hotel in Barcelona unless you are very monied. We are staying it Sitges about an hour away South of Barcelona, although you could try Blanes to the North (both holiday resorts).

    Having a 3-day ticket with parking we are in Car Park C, the entrance to which is near the IBIS hotel next to the circuit at PolĂ­gono Industrial Can Catalá Calle Can Gordi, 1, 08400 Granollers, Barcelona, Spain. We’ve hired a car, but if you trawl this site and the circuit’s website and google, you’ll find you can get there by train with about 20-30 minutes walk from the station.
    Cheers!

    Just had a look on trip advisor and there are still Barcelona hotels showing availability for the weekend at not-too-unreasonable prices.
    I’m at the Hotel Medium City. Never stayed there before so can’t exactly recommend it but it’s 5 minutes walk from the main train station from which you can take a train direct to Montemelo station.

    I’m going to my first Grand Prix this weekend, I have the 3 day GA ticket. Not much hope of McLaren doing well though by the looks of things :(

    Anybody got any tips on good places to watch from?

    hello fellow enthusiasts, I’m currently in pedra santa taking in the sights and getting ready for the pit walk tomorrow.

    I’ve pre paid parking and mine cost 11 quid for the parking, but 14 for the delivery, not sure how it will work out on the day.

    Dave, where do you go to book your parking? Any idea if you can pay on the day?

    Cheers
