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.

A big blow for the proposed Circuit of Wales, recently.

The Welsh government has withdrawn support for it, certainly from a financial point of view, at a recent cabinet meeting. They have already spent about 10 million of taxpayers' money on this "project" since 2011, yet the developers behind the scheme, HoVDC, haven't even purchased all the land that would be required, and has still to get planning consent for the track.

How long HoVDC can avoid bankruptcy is open to question as they have a binding contract to host MotoGPs up until 2019, and are having to hire Silverstone in lieu of their own circuit. And that arrangement has led to a loss for the last two years, possibly indirectly subsidised by taxpayers.

from the article:

Jonathan Neale, Chief Operating Officer, McLaren Technology Group, said:

“Why not? Why not bring Formula 1 to the streets of Woking? Obviously, aside from the huge social and financial commitment needed to set up the infrastructure, re-profile roads, re-lay Tarmac, fit miles of Armco, build grandstands, pay for race-hosting fees and gain approval and sign-off from the FIA, we don’t see any barriers to our vision.

“In an era that’s often seen as being hemmed in by bureaucracy and narrow-mindedness, that’s actually very refreshing.”


sounds like Mclaren are just having a bit of fun during the summer break! all its missing is a place for Alonso to set up his deck chair!



i wonder if this is at all related to a number of reddit posts over the past few days where members of the F1 subreddit forum over there are having some fun making up proposed tracks in their respective hometowns?

Yes, Charlie Whiting was inspecting Buenos Aires and said that he is a lover of the Circuit Number 12 (with the 2 long straight and the Salotto curvy)
Now it's close to be grade 3 for circuits 6, 7, 8 or 9.
And it will require a lot of work and investment to reach grade 1.

So basically he's in favour of using the full perimeter circuit, not bad
