Sep.3 (GMM) The Spanish grand prix venue in Barcelona has undergone a name change.

Since it was built in 1991, and began hosting the Spanish grand prix the same year, the track has been called Circuit de Catalunya.

But after a new sponsorship deal with the Barcelona City Council was agreed recently, the track will now be known officially as the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

The news, reported in Spanish newspapers including El Mundo Deportivo and the sports daily Marca, was confirmed by circuit president Vicenc Aguilera.
