The Jerez Circuit will be opening its doors not only to general public attending the annual MotoGP fixture, the Formula 1 training sessions, or any one of the other programmed sports fixtures during the season, but also to those wanting to get to know the facilities and how they work.

Starting in September, the race track will be offering several tour options: standard tours (lasting an hour) and special tours. All tour itineraries will include the race control room, the press centre, the podium, the paddock, the boxes, the VIP platform and an audiovisual presentation in the conference room.

Guided tours will also include “The motor exhibition”, on which the circuit is currently working, a unique venue showcasing equipment and kit belonging to drivers, riders and their teams, which have been delighted to collaborate with the Jerez Circuit in this project.

One of the star exhibits will be the Williams FW11 driven by Nigel Mansell in the first F-1 Gran Prix held at the Jerez Circuit in 1986, and in which he came second, 0.014 seconds behind the winner Ayrton Senna, driving the Lotus 98T, the smallest margin in the history of Formula 1.

Other exhibits will include the crash helmets of historical figures such as Ayrton Senna, Angel Nieto and Alex Criville, the full kit of riders and drivers such as Jorge Lorenzo and Lewis Hamilton, the crash helmets of Dani Pedrosa and Jarno Trulli, and the overalls of Pedro de la Rosa, Marc Gene, Jaime Alguersuari, David Coulthard, Robert Kubica, Alex Wurz, Sebastian Bourdais, etc. The exhibition will be updated periodically.
