The Autodromo de Sitges-Terramar was a kidney-shaped concrete oval that held the Spanish Grand Prix in 1923. Opened by the son of the King of Spain, the race was a duel between Louis Zborowski in an American Miller and the Sunbeam team. Albert Divo eventually prevailed for the latter after Zborowski was forced to change a wheel late in the race. However, it is alleged that unpaid construction workers seized the gate receipts so that Divo and other successful drivers did not receive any prize money. The disused track still exists today but Sitges did not hold another major event after 1923.
