The total journey time from Lloret de Mar to the circuit is expected to be around 2 hours and further details on the timetable will be released closer to the race.
Taxis can drop-off and pick-up at the main circuit gates. If possible, try to book your pick-up in advance to avoid a long wait.
BookTaxiBarcelona is a Barcelona based taxi company who offer return trips from Barcelona City Centre or Airport to the track. In order to minimise waiting times at the end of the race, the taxi service will wait at the circuit, and you will meet the same driver in the same location for your return trip. More information can be found on by clicking here.
You can also take an official taxi from Barcelona, the official taxis are black and yellow and are usually affordable, we advise you to check if the meter is being used. The fare should be on average around €10 per fifteen minute journey.
The nearest stop to the circuit is Montmelo Station. You can take the Renfe R2 (dark green) or R2 Nord (light green) train from Barcelona Sants, Barcelona Passeig de Gracia or Barcelona El Clot-Arago stations in the direction of Granollers or Saint Celoni directly to Montmelo. All of these Barcelona stations can be reached using the Barcelona metro service. From Montmelo station, the circuit entrance is approximately a 25-30 minute walk. For a nominal fee, the town hall also operate a touristic shuttle service from the station to the circuit, although this service is very limited.
Barcelona Sants is served by trains from most large cities in Spain, so if you are travelling from further afield, you may want to arrange travel to this station and then onward to the track.
Helicopter transfer services are available from a range of local and regional airports, as well as Barcelona Harbour (Port Vell), directly to the circuit. Information and pricing for this will be available at a later date.
