The Circuito permanente del Jarama (Permanent circuit of the Jarama) is a 3.404 km) (2.115-|mi) race course in Spain which hosted nine Formula One Spanish Grand Prix.

Designed by John Hugenholtz (who also created Zandvoort and Suzuka), the circuit was built in 1967 north of Madrid in arid scrub land. It had a short straight, as most of the course consisted of tight, twisty corners; overtaking was extremely difficult.

Jarama hosted its last F1 race in 1981 when it was deemed too narrow for modern racing; its still holds occasional sports car and motorcycle races.
