Oh yes! Brazil, Argentina double header would be lovely and then reinstating Mexico to the caldendar around one or two American rounds would suitable.

It sounds like the 70s/80s...

Chris Pook might be interested in bringing F1 back to Long Beech as Indy Car crowds are falling. It would also increase the number of races in the American time zones for TV deals.

http://joesaward.wordpress.com/2012/...-takes-a-peek/

I can see the logic but would 3 GPs in the USA be too many?

Long Beach was a mega event in a good location for the sport. A new layout with a bit of the old would be good.

While I would welcome a race at Long Beach, I think we should concentrate on getting one race off the ground first..

Agreed, any future GPs in the USA will be down to getting 100,000+ fans to pay for tickets at acceptable prices and for Bernie to leave room for a profit for the promoter.

A GP in London using the Olympic stadium has been proposed, could it work? 2 GPs in England is possible but there would be a lot of things to do, including a visit to Westminster to get a new law for a street race.

Reading about another story of a possible new venue for F1, I'm wondering if it's time for the FIA or Bernie to start using/promoting GP2 a bit more or start blurring the lines between F1 and GP2. What I mean is, if 20 races are the limit and there's x amount of venues also wanting to host a race but can't, the only way I can see this being accomodated is for GP2 to have greater status and for them to be used as an alternative for hosting a race. It might not satisfy potenttial organisers completely, but it's a start and can lead to hosting an F1 race later.

Isn't the Olympic park a private venue, and therefore not limited by the laws that rule public roads? I remember that they are trying to use the place at least for a race with electric cars or something similar.

Marcus666 has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I am hoping for the current tracks:

1.Portimao
2.Zandvoort
3.Dubai Autodrome
4.Kyalami
5.Potreros des los funes

But I guess I should get back to realisation now.

Using GP2 to appease circuit owners wouldn't work. There are other series out there such as WSR that is arguably as much an F1 feeder and as such likely to draw a crowd and create revenue for the circuit.

Thinking about that...Do WSR still give out free tickets?
