Another big Barcelona sporting weekend arrives as the MotoGP World Championship returns with the Monster Energy Catalonia Grand Prix. There's always a lot of local interest for this event, thanks to Catalonia's tradition of producing world-class motorbike drivers such as Marc Márquez (last year's overall world champion), Dani Pedrosa and Pol Espargaró, while other Spanish stars include Jorge Lorenzo. This race was added to the championship schedule in 1991 although there was already a Spanish MotoGP event because of the level of local success in the sport.

It's run over 25 laps and the popular Italian driver Valentino Rossi says it's one of his favourite tracks. Indeed Rossi has won it six times since 2001, with Australian Casey Stoner - winner in 2007 and 2011 - and the italian Andrea Dovizioso are the only riders who challenge the Spaniards' hegemony over this course. Last year champion was Jorge Lorenzo.

So join the excited crowd and see who will be the champion of this particular crown.
