On Sunday, June 5th, we take our ticket to the Barcelona-Catalunya region to see the latest installment of the MotoGP Grand Prix of Catalunya.
The Barcelona-Catalunya circuit has hosted a Grand Prix every year since it was first included on the MotoGP™ calendar in 1992 and the annual visit to this venue is enjoyed by riders and fans alike, with a superb track producing great racing just 25km to the north of Barcelona, one of Europe’s most vibrant cities.
This is the home venue for many of the sport’s biggest stars; including Marc Marquez, Jorge Lorenzo, Maverick Viñales, Dani Pedrosa, and the Espargaro brothers Aleix and Pol.
The Catalan GP typically falls in June, a great time of the year to visit this beautiful Mediterranean region.

MotoGP Catalunya Race Preview
Home to some of the most spectacular MotoGP races; the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is hosting a Grand Prix for the 31st year in succession.
One of the races that remains a classic of the modern era is the 2009 edition. That time, Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo battled every lap until the final corner.
Leading with just one sector to go, Lorenzo thought victory was his before Rossi invented a brilliant final corner overtake that no one could have seen coming.
With the front tire on the absolute limit, Rossi managed to park his Yamaha on the apex and hold off Lorenzo to the line.
Rossi holds the most wins at Catalunya (10) with six of those coming in MotoGP. Meanwhile, Lorenzo has five in the premier class and Marc Marquez; who won’t be taking part in this weekend’s Grand Prix after electing to have a fourth operation on his right arm since 2020; has three wins in total (two in MotoGP).
Expect this to be an exciting Grand Prix, as everyone will be giving their best to take the win the event.
