Grand Prix motor racing came to Switzerland in 1934, to the Bremgarten circuit, located just outside the town of Bremgarten, near Bern. The Swiss Grand Prix counted toward the European Championship from 1935 to 1939.
The Bremgarten track remained the home of the Swiss Grand Prix until 1954, after which motor racing was banned by the Swiss government as an unsafe spectator sport following the death of 80 people at the 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans race. The Swiss Grand Prix returned in 1975 as a non-Championship Grand Prix just across the border, at the Dijon-Prenois circuit, France. The next, and last, Swiss Grand Prix was a round of the Formula One World Championship in 1982, also held at Dijon.
On June 6, 2007 Swiss Parliament voted to lift the ban of circuit racing in Switzerland, 97 in favor and 77 opposed. However, the legislation was subsequently not ratified by the Swiss Council of States (the Senat) and the ban is now highly unlikely to actually be lifted.
