Circuito Permante de Jerez, Formula One race-track, Spain

January 25th, 2006 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places

Circuito Permante de Jerez is a 4,428 m (2.752-miles) 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, a horrible accident during qualifying for the 1990 race dropped Jerez from the calendar.

However, in 1994 Jerez instituted safety changes throughout the circuit, including a new chicane at the Senna curve. As a result, Jerez hosted the European Grand Prix in 1994 and in 1997 (the memorable race featuring the coming together of Michael Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve).
