MotoGP is warming up its engines in Barcelona
Barcelona is getting ready to welcome the stars of world motorcycling with the celebration of the Catalunya Grand Prix, which will take place on 12, 13 and 14 June.
This is an event not to be missed for fans of the top category of motorcycling, who're already getting ready to enjoy the overtaking and the bends at breakneck speed. Former editions of this Grand Prix have seen performances by riders who have gone down in history, like Àlex Crivillé, Mick Doohan, Valentino Rossi and Casey Stoner. This time around the battle is expected to be between Marc Márquez, the current champion, and Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi, contenders and all of them former world champions.
If you want to experience the intensity of the Grand Prix and at the same time enjoy everything Barcelona has to offer, this is your best option
