Located in the city of Barcelona, this route, used from 1946, was extremely fast because it was made up of long straight lines and fast turns.
After the disaster of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1955, which called into question the safety standards of the time, new rules were established which had the consequence of definitively condemning this type of circuit.
