Built in 1986, it hosted its first Grand Prix the following year. The Jerez circuit is now one of the most popular tracks of the MotoGP World Championship, the favorite meeting point of a city fanatic for sport. The circuit is located within a valley in southern Spain, a spectacular setting characterized by optimal weather conditions. The steps on the circuit allow for up to 250,000 spectators.
The circuit has two alternative tracks, one of 4,423 meters, the other of 4,428 meters; both tracks were re-paved in 2005. For this reason, the Andalusian circuit is the destination of several MotoGP World Championship teams for the test sessions during the year. The facilities for the media and for operators in the sector have also been recently modernized, as well as the control tower and the pits, guaranteeing the circuit further popularity.
