Circuito del Jarama (formerly Circuito Permanente del Jarama) is a track about 15 km (9 miles) north of Madrid, Spain. The track opened in 1966, and hosted the Spanish Grand Prix a total of nine times, before it was decided that the track was too short and narrow for Formula 1, after the 1981 Spanish Grand Prix.

Circuit History[edit | edit source]

The circuit was a result of the Royal Automobile Club of Spain seeking to create the country's first permanent circuit. They started searching for potential sites and contracted with John Hugenholz to design the track. The actual plot of land purchased turned out to be much smaller than Hugenholz anticipated, but he managed to create a track that was 3.4 km/2.1 miles long, with no fewer than five hairpins.
