hi mclarentastic , me and my partner are staying at the hotel onabrava this year and going to the grand prix,, i was planning to hire a motorbike when i get there to get back and fore, can you remember if the resort itself ran some kind of transport to the track? if so i may catch that instead, we booked stand G zone 21 , cant wait !
HI Justin Herridge and Mclarentastic, The AQUA hotel group arrange the coach transfers from the resorts to the racetack. I think they have about 5 hotels and each pick up is really close to each hotel. Last year they charged 28 euros which I felt was good value and the travelling time was only about 30 minutes to the racetrack after the last pick up. The only downside to the coaches were that they left at a given time and you didnt get to see some of the support races.
I am stopping in Aqua Promenade in Pineda, which is next resort to Santa Susannah, and I was contemplating hiring a car so that I can choose when to go and what time to stay until.
If that is of any use to you then let me know.
This year I have ticket for stand E, purchased through Book F1.com
I had planned in staying in Barcelona, mostly because I haven’t been before, but all this talk of people staying at resorts on the beach suddenly has me wondering… Hmmm… Nah, I’ll probably stay in Barcelona so I can see the city in the evenings.
We’re flying out tomorrow (technically today, given the hour). We’re going to skip Friday practice but try to catch qualifying. For anyone interested in the Thursday pit walk, apparently the McLaren drivers are out from 4.20 pm.
