By Chris Boyle

Circuit De Catalunya

Elite Traveler selects the most exclusive VIP experiences in Barcelona


FC Barcelona

There are few things more synonymous with the spirit of Barcelona than the city’s football team.

The pride of Catalonia, FC Barcelona is one of the fivnest football teams in the world, and maintains strong links with the city. This gives a unique opportunity for Elite Travelers: the chance to travel as part of the FC Barcelona entourage. Guests will travel to an away game on the private charter plane with the players, spend time with the team, surrounded by the national press, and then attend the game in the evening. Away games take place at a number of fantastic grounds in different cities around Spain. The following morning, guests will travel on the return flight with the players and soak up the atmosphere, whether it be euphoria or disappointment. A great opportunity to find out what it feels like to be a footballer; this is a unique opportunity to travel with one of the world’s most high-profile football teams. The football season runs from August until May, with matches usually taking place on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon or evening, although some games will be played midweek.


Circuit De Catalunya

If it has ever been your ambition to drive a Formula 1 racecar around a Grand Prix track, then LRS Formula can help you fulfill this fantasy.

The company gives those with a taste for the faster things in life the opportunity to pilot a wide selection of top-of-the-range race cars around two circuits close to the Catalan capital. As well as a selection of Formula 1 vehicles, Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Porsches are also available on the two tracks, one of which is the Circuit De Catalunya, the F1 racetrack used in the 2011 Spanish Grand Prix. This unforgettable day begins with a reception and breakfast at the track, before getting kitted out in full racetrack clothing. A briefing and presentation follows, explaining the cars and the circuit, before a trip around the track in a private vehicle, showing you the best way to handle the turns and the location of the braking zones. After the formalities are over it is your turn to take the wheel of an F3 car, get a feel for the track and receive some final advice on the best way to handle your car. Once lunch has been served, the fun really begins as you take to the track for the trip of your life. The combined total of 22 laps may feel like it has passed in the blink of an eye, but the memories of this wonderful event will last long in the memory. The day includes a presentation ceremony, providing you with a souvenir from the day and a DVD with footage from a camera located in the car.
