URBAN CIRCUIT GUADALOPE MODEL IN MOTORLAND ARAGÓ
History, culture, tradition and passion for engines. These are the ingredients converging on Alcanyís (Baix Aragó), and essential destination for lovers of petrol odor and devotees of speed.
Joaquín Repollés promoted fifty years ago el Primer Gran Premi Ciutat d’Alcanyís (1865) in the unforgettable urban planning of Circuit of Guadalope. The streets were the setting for vibrant races and the city became a pioneer in the development of sporting events. Alcanyís became quickly an emblematic model in the history of the urban circuits.
At the beginning of the 90’s the increasing requirement of security measures (because of the improvement of vehicle performances), restricted the activity in the urban circuit. The organization found it difficult to do high level tests and then it raised the idea of building a motor complex to keep the deep link between Alcanyís and the motor.
AN EXCITING PROJECT
The project began because of the citizens’ enthusiasm and the relevance gained during the mythical period of El Guadalope (its last race was in 2003). To set it up, MotorLand Aragó had a team of prestigious and recognized professionals. Finally, the project began in 2006 with the first competitions in the karting circuit or off road. In 2009, with the speed circuit opening the sports complex was finished; it that was born to become an agent of progress for the territory.
Motorland Aragó is a multifunctional complex formed by three areas dedicated to sport, technology, leisure and culture. This diversity of zones and contents gives the area a self-identity, based on a model that makes it unique and that, in essence, has always the passion for the engine at the forefront of its plans.
IN THE INTERNATIONAL VANGUARD
The speed, karting and offroad circuits are authorized to do testings and top level competitions. The track is scheduled in the timetable of prestigious international events, as Moto GP World Championship Race, FIM Superbike World Championship or the World Series by Renault. At national level we must also mention some other prestigious competitions as Spanish Speed Championship (FIM CEV Repsol), the Endurance Car Spanish Championship (CER), the Spanish Karting Championship or the Spanish GTs Championship.
