European Grand Prix
Valencia, Spain, 22-24 August 2008


Location: Valencia, Spain
Date: 23 August
Length: 3.38 miles
Rating (out of 10): 7

It was not so long ago that the sole Spanish Grand Prix on the Formula One calendar had one of the lowest attendance figures of the year.

Now, in the wake of Fernando Alonso's success, the country has got a second race because the Barcelona event cannot satisfy demand.

The incredible turnaround proves how a top-line driver can ignite interest.

The European Grand runs around an unusually quick street track on Valencia's newly developed waterfront.
