Circuito de Jerez
Length: 4.43 km // 2.75 mi
Location: Spain // 36.7097,-6.03253
Built in 1986, Jerez hosted its first Grand Prix the following year and has stayed on the World Championship calendar ever since. It is a race that the majority of riders look forward too thanks to the special atmosphere created by the Spanish fans and the characteristics of the circuit layout, which reward good riding. Many of the 13 corners flow into each other, requiring a precise and smooth racing line and a well-balanced machine set-up. The track also demands good front grip, whilst a host of slower corners also oblige the riders to control the rear wheel as it slides under acceleration on the exit.
