MotorLand Aragón (alternative Spanish name: Circuito de Alcañiz) is a 5.344 km (3.321 mi) motorsport race track located in Alcañiz, Spain.

The circuit has been designed by well-known German architect Hermann Tilke in conjunction with the British architectural firm Foster + Partners. Formula One driver and Ferrari test driver Pedro de la Rosa was a technical and sporting consultant on the project.[1]

The facility has been designed to incorporate three main zones - a technology park, a sports area and a leisure and culture area. The technology park will feature research and educational institutes related to the motor industry, the sports area will include the racing circuit (with multiple layouts), a karting track and various gravel circuits, whilst the leisure and culture section will feature a hotel, business centre and shopping facilities.[2]

A race in the Formul'Academy Euro Series at Ciudad del Motor de Aragón (2009)

It was announced on 26 May 2008 that the circuit will host a round of the World Series by Renault in 2009, the first international championship to race at the venue.[3][4] The event has returned to Aragón every year since, until the end of the championship in 2015. Renault Sport Technologies had access to the circuit for thirty days per year for testing and promotional events. When the World Series by Renault championship was discontinued at the end of 2015 and was relaunched in 2016 as Formula V8 3.5, the circuit continued to be part of the schedule. The race remained on the championship for the 2017 season, at the end of which the championship was discontinued.

On 18 March 2010, MotorLand Aragón was announced as a replacement for the Balatonring on the 2010 MotoGP calendar. Aragón was already in place as a reserve event and replaces the Hungarian race which was postponed because of overrunning construction work. This made the Aragon motorcycle Grand Prix the fourth Spanish race on the calendar.[5] In March 2011 Dorna Sports signed a contract with the circuit to make it a permanent entry on the main calendar until at least 2016.[6] On 19 May 2010, it was announced that the circuit will hold a round of the Superbike World Championship from 2011, with a three-year deal being agreed.[7]

The circuit was used as part of stage seven of the 2012 Vuelta a España.[8]

The circuit was planned to host round 6 of the 2020 World Touring Car Cup on the 5th of July, replacing Circuit Zandvoort on the calendar.[9] However, due to COVID-19 pandemic, the race was postponed; and the circuit hosted 2 WTCR rounds (Race of Spain, Race of Aragon) on the dates of 31 October-1 November 2020 and 14-15 November 2020 respectively. The circuit will continue to host WTCR races in 2021.
