Spanish Grand Prix


Taking the top three places in the Inaugural Spanish Grand Prix, the team led by Marquis of Salamanca the RR importer from Madrid, won the race at 87 kph. The race was 309 km in length using public roads from Guadarrama, on the road to Valladolid, and crossing the steep Navacerrada Mountain. Three by one hundred kilometers laps on a rough and grueling road, caused many repairs to be carried out. So they dug pits on the side of the road so mechanics could work underneath the cars. This was the first Spanish Grand Prix in 1913, and very different than today. Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya promotes the Spanish Grand Prix today, but you will not find pits dug in the pristine garages that are still called pits.

During the first half of the century, Grands Prix was a hit and miss affair, there was WWI, the Wall St Crash, a recession, promoters in financial difficulties, the Spanish Civil War and WWII, making racing take a back seat. Spain only returned to the Grand Prix calendar a couple of times until 1951, when the F1 formula brought back the Grand Prix cars to the Pedralbes circuit. Then came the 1955 Le Mans tragedy, the scheduled Spanish Grand Prix was cancelled and the pedestrian-lined street track at Pedralbes was then never used again for motor racing.

The government stepped in and built the Jarama circuit near Madrid which alternated with Montjuic a street circuit in Barcelona. Safety was an issue in Barcelona with the barriers not being safe. The drivers refused to race and the organizer threatened to lock the cars inside the local stadium. The drivers relented and the race took place. After 26 laps four spectators were killed by an errant car and the race was stopped-never to return.

Jerez took over the race for a few years but didn`t attract large enough crowds. So a new location in Barcelona was developed to coincide with the Olympics Games. Circuit de Catalunya first race was in 1991 and now the Spanish Grand Prix has a permanent home, near the incredible city of Barcelona.

Barcelona


Barcelona is different, close to your hotel it is like no other place on earth. It has its own personality, emphasized by art and architecture, from the genius of Dali, Gaudi, Miro, and Picasso. It has a vibrant street life that runs mazelike around the hotel area. Its many restaurants, some owned by the same family through many generations, they serve wonderful Spanish dishes. Quirky art in the famous galleries and imaginative food in the tapas bars leaving lasting memories and tastes.

Especially remarkable is the work of architect Antoni Gaudí, which can be seen throughout the city from Park Guell to the Casa Mila. His best-known work is the immense and still unfinished church of the Sagrada Família, which has been under construction since 1882, and is still financed by private donations. Completion is planned for 2026.
