The Circuit Calafat was built in 1974 outside the town of the same name in the L'Ametlla de Mar in Catalonia. Private finance paid for the Jordi Xiol designed track, which cost a total of 30 million pesetas. Fans made their own contribution, purchasing shares in the facility worth a total of 25,000 pesetas.

The track closed temporarily during 1982 and 1985 because of legal problems but soon recovered. In 1990 an extension to the circuit was constructed, bringing it up to its current 3.2 km length.
