Well, it's basically an extension of some of the old street circuits that used to hold events.

This video shows a short layout (about 1.2 miles) that is sort of the center section of the bigger F1 proposal (probably about 3.5 miles around). And while the F1 layout appears to be run clockwise, this iteration ran anticlockwise in this case.

What I like about this one compared to Valencia are the elevation changes, the grassy areas, and the fact that there don't seem to be nearly as many of those extra little kinks and bends to mess things up in some critical areas. The braking zones look more straightforward, with with better opportunities to get alongside someone before the major braking zones. Also, Mar del Plata has five good "straights", which are pretty straight for the most part, whereas Valencia really just has two, with the other three flat-out stretches having more significant corners in the middle of them.

Even with Tilke "designing" this, the existing roads, buildings, etc limit what he can mess with.

I did a topic a while back somewhere on here asking the question: 'Why do we have no genuinely fast new tracks?'

It just seems strange what with the significant progress we've made in chassis safety and run-off technology (including things like tecpro barriers etc) that we don't have one.

Use say, T8 at Turkey as an example of how high speed works safety wise today. No injuries (as far as I know), and certainly no fatalities.

What if we had a circuit that comprised mainly of that? It'd be quite the spectacle.. And a big time USP for a Grand Prix.

Plus, it'd add the element of variation that the calendar desperately needs.

It loks like the future Russian GP at Sochi is in doubte following the death of its promoter and various other political problems. The French GP is not signed either with the new socialist government not keen on Paul Ricard leaving two future races in doubt. Bernie is ment to be quite worried about the Russian situation. There is also question marks over Korea. So Bernie's vision of 20 GP's is at risk.

Yeh, looking again, it really is going to be probably the quickest of the new tracks since say, Malaysia?

And I think it'll be quicker than that.

Talking about lack of fast tracks no one ever decides to build a new Monza, Spa, Le Mans or even old Osterreichring.
They keep putting in loads of stupid slow speed corners (see Abu Dhabi) its not even as if these circuits promote better overtaking.

On another matter 'street circuits' i really hope the new races in New Jersey and possibly Mara del Plata are more akin to Monaco or possibly Singapore. Anything but Valencia thats not a street circuit just a crap normal circuit near some walls. I would be happy to see Indycar style street circuits similar to the ones F1 raced in the USA during the 80s/early 90s. Fingers crossed for New Jersey...

Rant Over!

South Africa now looks to be a possible GP in 2015. At least it is country with motorsport history and should make an interesting addition to the calender. The circuit based in Cape Town is to be tempory using existing stadia for grandstands.

Sounds interesting. Not entirely up for another street circuit but the idea of using existing stadia is interesting.

Anyone got any maps/layouts for it?

Is Venezuela rumoured to host a GP soon? Given Maldonado's success and the fact that they have lots of money I would have thought it would have been rumoured at least.

Yeh there's rumours of everywhere, afterall.

You're right, though - especially given that they now have a national holiday after his win!

They have lots of money in the hands of Chavez, that's for sure.

There are rumours for a race in the moon, also...
