Enrique Banuelos was bornon 14 February 1966 in Spain. Enrique Banuelos is betting everything he has on two megaprojects: BCN World, a casino playground outside of Barcelona, and Formula E, a Formula 1-style racing circuit with only electric cars. BCN World got a stroke of good luck when billionaire Sheldon Adelson cancelled his plan to invest more than $30 billion to build EuroVegas, a rival casino project slated for Madrid. Fellow investors in Formula E include Wycliffe Grousbeck, co-owner of the Boston Celtics and Valentin Bukhtoyarov, a Russian coal magnate. Banuelos built his original fortune through real estate company Astroc Mediterraneo S.A., which debuted on the Spanish stock exchange in 2006, launching him on the Forbes Billionaires List in 2007 with a net worth of $7.7 billion. He lost $6.4 billion within a year as Spain's real estate market collapsed. After the crash he retreated to his castle on Mallorca, the the luxurious Mediterranean island off the coast of Spain, where he planned the reinvention of his career.
