An ultra-modern facility, MotorLand Aragón is the venue for the 14th MotoGP of the 2012 season – the Gran Premio Iveco de Aragón. The circuit's roots were firmly established due to a solid history of street racing in Alcañiz, which hosted events between 1963 and 2003. Safety advice warning against the continuation of this led to the proposal and construction of a sporting complex dedicated to motorsport.
Well-known, German architect Hermann Tilke, with support from local institutions, was commissioned to design the facility. The circuit, which has 17 turns and is 5,078m in length, was widely praised by riders following its first Grand Prix in 2010, and Motorland was rewarded with the IRTA Best Grand Prix of the Year award – the first time a circuit had received that particular prize in its debut year.
