Formula One return for Barcelona’s Montjuic Park
« on: October 09, 2007, 04:22:04 PM »
For the first time in over 30 years the legendary circuit of Montjuic Park in Barcelona will hear the roar of Formula One engines this weekend when Martini, one of the circuit's first supporters back in 1933, will pay tribute to Montjuic's 75th anniversary through a retro motorsport festival.

The circuit was home to the Spanish Grand Prix up until 1975 and remains largely unchanged. For the ‘Martini Legends’ event, the streets will be closed and the circuit restored to its former glory, with pit lane, start-finish line and grandstands, in a bid to recreate the heritage and atmosphere of when legendary drivers such as Sir Jackie Stewart and Emmerson Fittipaldi were racing.

On Saturday, October 13 a large collection of classic and collector's cars will be displayed on the Reina Maria Cristina Avenue, with background information on the drivers and races of the day. Then on the Sunday more than 50 cars that competed at the circuit in the past will take to the track and complete a unique parade through Montjuic Park.

Double world champion and Brazilian legend Fittipaldi will drive the Lotus that took him to title glory in 1972 and victory at Montjuic in '73, while Ferrari's Spanish test driver Marc Gene will bring celebrations up-to-date when he demonstrates a 2006 Ferrari F248. There will be 12 Formula One cars in total - including Jackie Stewart's Tyrrell 001 - plus sports prototypes and GT cars that competed at the famous urban circuit.

now this looks like an event we would all enjoy, either as an educational event or just to bring back the memories

There is a clip on one of the Jackie Stewart films on youtube where he is being interviewed by a Spanish TV presenter and is talking them round a lap of Montjuich which is from a vieo game.  I assume GP Legends.  I will see if I can find it again.
