The Pedralbes Circuit was a 6.316 km ( 3.925-mi) street racing course near Barcelona, Spain.

First opened in 1946 in the western suburbs of the city, the course featured wide streets and expansive, sweeping corners; both drivers and racing fans loved the course. The course hosted the Formula One Spanish Grand Prix twice in the early 1950s, but the Le Mans Disaster of 1955 meant stricter safety rules and the Pedralbes Circuit was permanently retired as a racing venue.
