A lap at Montjuich Park Circuit
A photo tour around the old Formula One circuit of Montjuich Park in Barcelona, made in the summer of 2008 by Herman Liesemeijer.
We start our lap at the Formula One Start/Finish. As you can see not really a straight!
At the highest point of the track we pass the Olympic Stadium. Originally build for the Olympic games from 1936, who where given to Berlin, but used for the games from 1992.
We're arrived at the first corner which is also he slowest point of the track.
Than the track goes downhill.
Hard braking for the corner around the Museo Etnològic.
Looks like a nice ride trough the park...
Than braking for a long lefthander around a public garden.
After our nice little ride trough the park we're reaching the urban part of the track.
On our left hand the Museo Arqueològic...
And on our right hand the Mercat de les Flors theatre (Flower market Theatre). Once upon a time this was a flower market!
The lowest point of the track...
From here we're climbing.
In front of the stairs to the Passeig de les Cascades we turn right.
One of the few real straights!
Passing the Palau Municipal d'Esports (Municipal Sport Palace).
In front of the Police station we turn left.
This is the longest straight of Montjuich!
Here was the Start/Finish of the 24 hour motorcycle races.
Left the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (National Art Museum of Catalonia).
Here comes the most challenging part of the track...
Long fast corners uphill!
On our left hand the open air museum Poble Espanyol (Spanish Village).
They constructed a roundabout here!
And than we're back at the Formula One Start/Finish.
