Name tweak for Formula 1 track in Barcelona

3 September, 2013

Circuit de Catalunya

Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya

The Spanish Grand Prix venue in Barcelona has undergone a name change.

Since it was built in 1991, and began hosting the Spanish Grand Prix, the track has been called Circuit de Catalunya.

But after a new sponsorship deal with the Barcelona City Council was agreed recently, the track will now be known officially as the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

The news, reported in Spanish newspapers including El Mundo Deportivo and the sports daily Marca, was confirmed by circuit president Vicenc Aguilera. (GMM.)
