The Catalunya Circuit opened in September 1991, in line with the hosting of the Barcelona Olympics, and is located approximately 30km north of Barcelona, Spain. This is one of Spains leading race tracks where a variety of races including the F1 Spain Grand Prix is hosted. With a long straight and a large variety of corners, the setting of the car can greatly aﬀect the lap times. For this reason it is often used as a test track. The braking into turn 1 from the slightly descending home straight is a great spot for overtaking.
