F1 confirms no public allowed at F1 Test in Barcelona

The dates of the F1 Tests in Barcelona and Bahrain had been decided some time ago the details of the tests had still been a mystery.

We learned late on the 26th Jan that F1 have decided to treat Barcelona Test as more of a “shakedown run” – which normally runs as a “private event” and have confirmed that the event will not be open to the public.

A recent statement from F1’s website reads…

“The first outing is a lower key, pre-testing track session at Barcelona on 23-25 February, allowing the teams to shake down their all-new-for-’22 cars for the first time in the same place.

“However, as is traditional with teams’ pre-testing-type events, the running at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya won’t feature live, race-style coverage or live timing, but will include content and best lap times at the end of each day.”

Clearly this has come as a great disappointment to us and our many clients who were looking forward to attending the test in February.

If you had made a booking with us a member of the team will be in touch to discuss your options soonest. If you would like to speak to us please contact us on 01242 527410.
