Finally, on 10th September 1991, the Circuit of Catalunya hosted its first official race the Spanish Touring Championship (the winner being the former F1 driver Luis Perez Sala). It wasn't until 29th September 1991 that the 35th Formula One Spanish Grand Prix took place here, after 16 years of absence in Catalunya.
