Circuito de Jerez - Àngel Nieto

Opened in December 1985 and hosting its first Spanish Grand Prix just four months later, Circuito de Jerez has been one of the premier racing facilities in Spain for nearly four decades. It brought the World Driver’s Championship back to the country after a four-year hiatus, and even after giving up full-time status to Barcelona in 1991, returned as host of the European Grand Prix multiple times—most notably as the season finale in 1997, when Jacques Villeneuve and Michael Schumacher set up a title-deciding thriller by posting identical qualifying laps and colliding during the race, with Villeneuve surviving the collision and winning the title.
