Introduction

image:eng.gifCircuit of Jerez is a 4.428 m. racing circuit located deep within the sherry-producing south of Spain.

Built in 1986 to host the Formula One Spanish Grand Prix, the circuit's remote location never allowed significant spectator turnout. Despite some great racing, including a race won by Ayrton Senna by 14 thousandths of a second, F1 moved to Barcelona following the 1990 race.

However, in 1994 Jerez instituted safety changes throughout the circuit, including a new chicane (the Senna curve) at the corner where Martin Donnelly had an appalling accident in 1990. As a result, Jerez hosted the European Grand Prix in 1994 and in 1997. Actually the F1 use it for test only.

While the circuit currently does not host an Formula 1 race, it is often used a venue for testing by the teams.

Construido en 1986 para albergar el Gran Premio de España de Fórmula 1, su localización apartada dificultó el éxito en asistencia del público. A pesar de algunas grandes carreras, como la victoria de Ayrton Senna por sólo 14 milésimas de segundo en 1986, un terrible accidente protagonizado por Martin Donnelly a 200 km/h durante las calificaciones de la carrera de 1990 apartó al circuito del calendario oficial.

Sin embargo, en 1994, Jerez realizó algunos cambios de seguridad en el circuito, incluyendo una nueva chicane en la curva Senna. Debido a ello, Jerez volvió a ser sede de Fórmula 1, esta vez del Gran Premio de Europa en los años 1994 y 1997. Actualmente la Fórmula 1 lo utiliza como pretemporada.
