History

This race originally was to be return of the Argentine Grand Prix, but those plans were aborted in May 1994 as the track, which was undergoing modernization since 1991, was not finished yet. The FIA moved the race to Jerez and named it the European Grand Prix midseason. The series went to Argentina the following year for the 1995 Argentine Grand Prix.
