Circuit de Catalunya, Montmeló, Barcelona, Spain

A relative newbie in the world of motor racing, this track was constructed in 1991 with a length of 4.6km and has been the home to the Spanish Grand Prix ever since. It’s a regular test location and as such is well known by the teams, and traditionally therefore does not see much overtaking action. Mind you, back in 1991 Nigel Mansell and Ayrton Senna had a bit of a ding-dong and in 1994 Michael Schumacher managed to finish in second place despite driving over half the race with only fifth gear.

DTM and MotoGP also feature regularly at the circuit.
