Arteixo Autocross Club is perhaps the organisation that manages to attract the most visitors to Arteixo. When a championship race is held in the José Ramón Losada track, thousands of people flock to see it. The track has an infrastructure adapted to handle a large number of public and participants. There are bathrooms for both men and women, areas adapted for visitors with reduced mobility, specific areas for the press etc. It has a seating capacity of 5,500. 80 people collaborate with the organisation of each event in the Galician championship, while during the national championship there are as many as 150 collaborators.

Security is checked along the whole track and a medical team headed by Dr. Baldomero Borrajo and Dr. Alicia Freire looks after the pilots.

The history of autocross in Arteixo started in 1982. The track used to be where Sabón Industrial Estate is now located, and the circuit was little more than 800m long.

 

At the end of the eighties there was a move to a new track in Santa Icía de Morás, where many of the best pilots in Spain and Portugal began to compete. In 2000 the new track in Morás was officially inaugurated and has continued to function up to the present day, while each year brings many new improvements. Thanks to the incomparable atmosphere of the events, it has become the most popular autocross track of those which take part in the Spanish Autocross Championship.

This track was named “José Ramón Losada” in 2006 in honour of the man who was its emblematic president for more than two decades.
