The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, also known as "Montmeló", was inaugurated on September 10, 1991, as a project led by the Catalan Government, the Royal Automobile Club and the Montmeló City Council. The circuit hosted its very first race only five days after the inauguration. It was a race of the Spanish Touring Car Championship, while the first Grand Prix of Formula 1 took place a few weeks later, on September 29, 1991. The first MotoGP Grand Prix was added to the calendar next season. Since then, F1 Grand Prix and Catalan MotoGP, two of the most prestigious motorsport championships, have been held here every year. Other events that host the circuit include the FIM CEV Repsol, the Barcelona Speed Festival, the International GT Open, endurance races such as the 24 Horas de Catalunya de Motociclismo, the 24H de Barcelona-Trofeo Fermé Velez and the CER (Spanish Endurance Sup).
For nearly 30 years, the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya has become one of the best racing tracks in the world. Thanks to its convenient location, just a few kilometers from Barcelona, it offers excellent accessibility from all over the world.
