    It's this: http://www.pistasinta.es/

    It seems to be a test track of sorts.

    If you want to read it in somewhat understandable English, paste the url into here: http://www.worldlingo.com/en/website...ranslator.html

    Motor industry test grounds is my guess.
    Everything about says roads. All those markings and no traffic.
    "Sprint" tracks.
    One car on the big round track.

    yeah it's a car manufacturers test track, a high speed ring approximately 4km long with sufficient banking so that at speeds of about 180km/h+ the driver no longer needs to hold the steering wheel, centrifugal forces vs. gravity and whatnot. On the inside is a network of tracks and roads with various surfaces for more rigorous handling and ride testing such as dirt tracks, cobblestones, smooth tarmac and a large skidpan (the big rectangle) that is able to be covered in water for wet driving tests.

    Default INTA is a European Testing Agency

    They test all different kinds of vehicles as well as ROAD construction methods.

    If you google "pistas inta" at youtube, you find some videos shot there.
