That swoop downhill into T1 and along to T2 would be interesting with a grid of F1's!!

The FIA granted a Grade 1-T license and a number of teams tested back in December 2008 and in January 2009. Lando Norris's tested there with McLaren F1 last week.

Also the circuit is kinda in the middle of nowhere, but there's plenty of width to the circuit, which should be good for overtaking

Ricard hoping for a late June early July slot for next year. Traditional period for the French GP to be held. Wouldn't be right any other time although location normally means good weather all year round.

Portimao, is without doubt the best "modern" track suited for F1.

Sorry-I think all events intending to attract spectators should be held in the centre of cities

We saw it at Magny Cours, that too was in the middle of nowhere, which is why it had problems attracting spectators

thinking back, issues surrounding its remoteness and lack of hotels only became a talking point when the sanctioning fees and ticket prices started going through the roof and the new tilke tracks emerged in the mid 2000s.

probably a bit revisionist on my part but it always seemed really well attended in the 90s before the greed of F1 went full blown.
