Circuito Permanente de Jerez

Jerez de la Frontera


Circuito Permanente de Jerez is a 4,428 m (2.752-miles) racing circuit located in the city of Jerez de la Frontera, deep within the sherry-producing south of Spain. It was built by Alessandro Rocci, who was also in charge of Circuito Permanente del Jarama's project.

The circuit opened on 8 December 1985. During 1986 the circuit hosted the first international motorcycle event in Spain in March and the Formula One Spanish Grand Prix in April. The circuit's remote location hindered significant spectator turnout, although up to 125,000 can be accommodated. Because of this, F1 moved to Barcelona following the 1990 race.

Due to the hosting of the European Grand Prix in 1994, the circuit instituted safety changes from the 1990 configuration, including a new chicane (the Senna curve) at the corner where Martin Donnelly had an appalling accident. Jerez also hosted the 1997 European Grand Prix, which was the championship decider between Michael Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve), who collided during the race.

While the circuit currently does not host a Formula 1 race, it is often used as a venue for testing. During 2005, the track was resurfaced. It was expected that the Champ Car World Series would race there in 2008 until the series was cancelled early in the year after merging with the IndyCar Series.[1]
