Circuito de Navarra was built in 2009 to the highest standards by the Government of Navarra. It has been operational since 2010.

The track instantly achieved FIA Grade T1 and Grade 2 licences, meaning it can hold Formula 1 tests and all race categories below, as well as FIM Grade B standards, allowing categories up to WorldSBK. 

The circuit has hosted a number of prestige GT series events, including rounds of the FIA GT and GT World Challenge Europe Series, as well as the French GT Tour and the FIA European Truck Racing Championship. The single-seater Spanish F4 championship races annually as part of the Racing Weekend package.

In 2018, the McLaren Formula One team unveiled its MCL33 car at Circuito de Navarra, as Fernando Alonso drove the car for the first time.

In 2021 the circuit held a round of the World Superbike Championship. Ducati rider Scott Redding claimed the victories in race one and the Superpole race, whilst the second race was won by the Yamaha of eventual series champion Toprak Razgatlioglu. Riders hailed the layout as being fun, unique and full of character. Six-time champion Jonathan Rea described the first corner as "like no other in the world."

The Spanish Superbike Championship (ESBK) races annually at the circuit too.

The largest event to take place at Circuito de Navarra is VOLRACE ICE, which launched at the venue in 2017 before expanding to visit the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia and the Jarama Circuit in Madrid. VOLRACE ICE is held annually in February, and it brings together the best and most extreme national and international drifting, alongside a number of exclusive vehicles on display. There’s also a huge exhibition area, food and drink stalls, trade sites and drag and off-road activities.

Circuito de Navarra became part of the MotorSport Vision (MSV) group on 1 November 2022.

MSV, a private company owned by former Formula 1 driver Jonathan Palmer and Sir Peter Ogden, operates six motorsport venues in the UK: Brands Hatch, Oulton Park, Snetterton, Cadwell Park and Donington Park, while the world-renowned PalmerSport corporate hospitality event is based at MSV's Bedford Autodrome venue.
