After looking like it was off the calendar for 2020, the Spaish Grand Prix has been given a last minute reprieve after a 1-year contract was signed in August. The 2020 race will be the 30th consecutive running of the event at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. We are big fans of the Spanish Grand Prix. The circuit offers panoramic views from most grandstands and the excellent General Admission areas, and ticket prices are reasonable. Spanish Grand Prix ticket prices have remained virtually unchanged for the past four years, though the organizers removed the generous early-bird discounts (of up to 30%) last year. Single-day grandstand tickets are no longer available, though there are some interesting new single-day grandstand tickets this year with access to all the grandstands on Friday or Saturday. Tickets for the more popular grandstands (such as Main, J, K, F, N & H) sometimes sell out well before the race, so get in early if you want the best seats for the Spanish Grand Prix.
General Admission at Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona
The unique natural amphitheater layout of the Circuit de Catalunya provides plenty of raised viewing areas and making one of the best General Admission experiences of any race on the current F1 calendar. If you have bought a General Admission (Pelouse in Spanish) ticket, you will also benefit from “Free Friday” when you are also allowed to sit in any grandstand you wish (with the exception of the single-day grandstands; B, E & N).
There are six General Admission viewing areas at Circuit de Catalunya, mainly located in the Southern and Western track zones (refer to the circuit map). General Admission ticket holders in Spain also benefit from eight big screen TVs. The most popular General Admission area is the hill between turns 6-8. It gets busier as the weekend progresses; you will need to reserve your spot early for qualifying and the race.
