Jerez de la Frontera, autódromo
Description In Summer 1981 a new small circuit at Jerez was rumoured. It should have been paid by Jerez Municipality and Jerez Consortium. Track designer was Sandro Rocci, the same architect who built Jarama. The circuit should have been used only for national races; if works had started soon, it could have been inaugurated in 1982.
