A tight and twisty circuit, Jerez has held a motorcycle grand prix race since 1987, soon after it was built, and hosted Formula 1 races during the 1990s.
With a track length of 4.428kms, Jerez features eight right turns and five lefts and circulates in a clockwise direction.
Long straights and sharp hairpins tend to favour a hard suspension set up and gear ratios are usually relatively short.
The local airport is located 5kms north of Jerez and the city has good motorway links with Seville. Frequent rail services connect Jerez with Madrid and Barcelona and there are plentiful bus services to transport race fans from the city on race days.
