The circuit

Fabrizio Giovanardi of JAS Motorsport suggested the circuit is bumpy. Andy Priaulx of BMW Team UK suggested the circuit got a mix of massively fast and then medium speed turns which is not favorable BMW touring cars. Jordi Gené of SEAT Sport suggested that its turns are close to each other and they are high speed. The layout and types of corners on the track is actually similar to Motorsport Arena Oschersleben, but with more dramatic elevation changes.

The elevation changes between Entrada do Miolo and Pinheirinho reward well balanced cars. Confident drivers can gain a serious advantage through the heavily banked turns. Curva de Vitoria has quite a bit of positive camber and your exit speed will carry through, all the way down the straight. However if the car goes even 10 cm wide, it will end in the wall. There is only one racing line through this fast corner, so the driver requires to line up behind the car in front and slingshot past it down the straight.[1]

A1 Grand Prix series

The circuit was scheduled to host a round of the A1 Grand Prix series in February 2006. However, after the schedule was revised, the circuit was removed as a host venue for the series.
