Like many other Live for Speed leagues, CESAV's origins can be traced back to a group of young enthusiasts (most on their late teens at that time) who organised a series of championships based on the LFS demo. After the release of Stage 2, with the dedication and expertise gained so far, (now defunct) was founded in 2006 to bring the championship organization up to a whole new level. By that time, Liga Internacional held races on Sunday evenings and soon enough they met with other drivers belonging to (another S2 site, now also defunct) who used to race later, on Monday nights. After a while, Liga Internacional was renamed to as the non spanish-speaking drivers attendance was very low and continued to organize leagues on its usual Sunday schedule. renamed to around 2009, and closed doors for good in 2014. Drivers belonging to that site sought its place then at, which began to hold league races on Monday evenings and was renamed to, becoming as it is today.

While nowadays the vast majority of CESAV users are based in Spain, the administration has made an effort to make the website as well as the Insim messages available in English, and the league is welcoming again drivers from Europe, America, and the Middle-East.

Present and past seasons
