Barcelona revamp - A new chicane is introduced at the Circuit de Catalunya

Published by Christine

The circuit at Barcelona looks slightly different now, after renovation works on a particular corner have been completed.

Safety fears sparked the introduction of plans for a chicane between the Europcar and New Holland corners. That's for those of you who have memorised all of the circuits. It took me long enough to remember what the Barcelona circuit is like anyway.

The new chicane means additional corners, and the existing ones being much tighter than before, plus improved run-off areas and safety barriers.

How long will that keep them happy for, do you think?
