The new Valencia Street Circuit in Spain hosted a number of Formula Three and GT races over the weekend in preparation for the venue’s debut Formula One event, the Grand Prix of Europe, in August.

GP2 team mates Mike Conway and Ho-Pin Tung clinched the maiden win at the track on Saturday evening, driving a GT3 Dodge Viper, while on Sunday, local hero Jaime Alguersuari won the Spanish Formula Three race.

Following the successful completion of the rehearsal events, the circuit received its track licence from the FIA, ahead of the forthcoming Grand Prix, which will take place from August 22-24.

Tickets for the inaugural Valencia race are still available to buy through Formula1.com’s official Tickets and Travel service.
