The most successful: Jerez

Jorge Martinez “Aspar” finished either first or second in the 80cc and 125cc categories from 1987 to 1990 and both Ralf Waldmann and Kazuto Sakata enjoyed significant success here in the mid-nineties on both 250 and 125 machines respectively.

Of the British riders Bradley Smith is the most successful. He returns to the scene of his maiden grand prix victory, when he won the 2009 125cc race by over 13 seconds. In the top class both Ron Haslam and Niall Mackenzie scored third place finishes in 1987 and 1992 respectively.

Of riders still competing in the grand prix classes both Toni Elias and Pol Espargaró are both double winners around the track.

Rossi may be one of the most successful rider at Jerez, 9 victories 5 in motogp.... an his 05 win over Sete was epic looking forward to a tight race with paint swapping battles and carnage throughout the race.
