Description On September 22nd 1963 it hosted ITrofeo Nuestra Señora de la Merced (1st Trophy Nuestra Señora de la Merced), a motorbike race in which the famous rider Antonio Sánchez ("Peluqui") died. Many years after, a corner of autódromo (permanent circuit) was named after him. The circuit was used for some more editions, with one or more different layouts, but I have no more infos. Not to be confused with other Jerez circuits.
