The Autódromo Internacional Nelson Piquet (commonly known as Jacarepaguá) was a racing circuit which held the Brazilian Grand Prix ten times between 1978 to 1989. The 5km circuit, named after triple World Champion, Nelson Piquet was opened in 1977 and stood until 2012, when the circuit was demolished in order to make way for venues for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.

The most successful driver around the Jacarepaguá circuit was Alain Prost, winner of five of the 10 Formula One races held there. Nelson Piquet was the only Brazilian driver to win his home event there, doing so in 1983 and 1986.

The circuit held its last F1 Grand Prix in 1989, a race won by Nigel Mansell, before being replaced by the Autódromo José Carlos Pace at Interlagos. The circuit was demolished in 2015, to make room for venues of the 2016 Olympic Games.
