If you are a motorhead looking for a final resting spot, there's a place just outside Barcelona, Spain that may be your ticket. It's the Circuit de Catalunya, host to both MotoGP and Formula 1 races. The track is now permitting human remains to be scattered across the course. While the circuit isn't allowing whole bodies (or even partial ones, for that matter) to be buried, an initial fee of €1,500 (about $1,950 at today's exchange) will get your cremated remains distributed at some of your favorite turns. Before you sell your loved ones on the idea, make sure to tell them that there is also a €50 ($65) annual maintenance fee to ensure what's left of you stays off the racing surface and in the gravel traps. Although spending eternity at a track may appeal to you, keep in mind you won't be watching any races. Thanks for the tip, Jensen!

      Annual maintenance fee? Isn't that like renting a coffin? Sounds like a pretty bad (and expensive) idea.

      Laff a maint. fee? chances are the weekend after your scattered across turn 10 its going to rain...and you will eventually (your ashes) be miles away. unless there is a ziploc bag available

      Yeah haha, what if you just decide to not pay the annual fee? :D
        • 6 Years Ago
        Good point! Buy it in advance of your death, pay for it, then let them come collect. I'll be in the gravel traps.

      It would be great telling drivers just before the race something like hi, see, there are remains of 6 dead people scattered around that corner...

      Anyway, they should mix it right into the tarmac mixture.

      Bah. Tell me when the Nuerburgring, in their sell-out phase, lets people to the same as I'd really like my ashes to be scattered around the Karoussell area.

      So when Jorge Lorenzo crashes his Yamaha, he'll be rolling around in Uncle Ricardo's ashes. Sweet.
