Aragon Round ROUND 01 08 - 10 APR

MotorLand Aragon, Teruel, Spain

A truly state-of-the-art venue, the MotorLand Aragon road racing circuit was opened in 2009, to continue the rich local heritage of racing which had seen years of exciting street races in nearby Alcañiz, which hosted events between 1963 and 2003.

In 2011, MotorLand became the fifth Spanish track to host the WorldSBK™ Championship and the first visit of the series to the circuit saw Spaniard Carlos Checa finish on the podium in third place in Race 2. That year Checa rode his Ducati to title glory becoming the first Spaniard to win the WorldSBK™ title.

Why we love Aragon and Teruel

The small town of Alcañiz is just a few minutes drive from the MotorLand circuit and is steeped in racing history having hosted some epic races on the Guadalope Urban Racetrack over four decades from the mid 1960s.

Alcañiz sits on the river Guadalope, belongs to the Teruel province in the autonomous community of Aragon and is located 113km from the provincial capital Teruel. The town is home to just over 16,000 people – though of course that number swells dramatically on race weekends – and boasts centuries of history, as you will note from the ancient buildings in the old town centre.

The Teruel province is one of Spain’s quieter regions, but that makes it all the more special to visit, with its sometimes deserted landscape, strong rural culture, fine local Spanish food and its beautiful provincial capital, the town of the same name – Teruel.
