The Spanish GP

The Spanish Grand Prix is a Formula One motor racing event that is currently held at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain. The race is one of the earliest still held in the world, commemorating its centennial in 2013. The race began modestly as a manufacturing racing event.

After being disrupted by World War I, the race ended up waiting a decade for its 2nd stint before becoming a fixture on the European calendar. It was part of the World Manufacturers’ Championship in 1927, and it was endorsed to the European Championship in 1935, before the Spanish Civil War ended racing. The race was effectively revitalised in 1967 and has been a routine feature of the Formula One World Championship at multiple locations since 1968.

The circuit length of the Catalunya is an impressive 4.655 km. A Formula One race at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya consists of a total of 66 laps on the main race day following 3 practice sessions and a qualifying session ahead of the main race.
