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!!
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?
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 Polígono 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.
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.
@tim neale thats were i normally get my hotel if i go to spain,just remember which exit your hotel is on,i took the wrong exit after a few sangrias and got lost :),but if you come out of the staion to the opoisite side from the hotel thats attached(obvious when your there) theres plenty bars and resteraunts all within 5 min walk
