Formula 1 travels almost all over the world during one season. However, there is one continent that is not represented in the sport: Africa. Fast racing opportunities in Africa are now explored, as are options for the second United States Grand Prix.
In conversation with Motorsportweek.com Global racing promotion director Chloe Target-Adams has announced that Africa is moving towards as one of the places where a new circuit could be built. In fact, Target Adams considers exploring possibilities in Africa a priority.
“Africa is a continent where we do not race and this is just a mistake. It is a place we would like to visit, it is a priority. We have talked about possible options for several years and we hope to be able to race there in the near future.”
Africa is not the only option for a new circle
Target Adams isn’t just Africa in her sights. It also talks about new places in Asia and the US that Formula 1 could do. The latter remains a strategic priority for a second circle as far as Adams is concerned.
The United States remains a clear strategic priority. We have a great race in Austin and look forward to working with our lawns there for years to come. We are looking at options for a second race and venue and hope we can bolster the race proposal for the United States. “
Adams doesn’t have a clear place on his mind yet, but the goal is. If Formula 1 already has a race in addition to the current US GP and a race in Arika, nearly every continent will be equipped with arenas in which you can race. It is not yet known if this also has consequences for the race calendar, but it is conceivable that it will be possible to switch locations from season to season. After all, the Portuguese GP is already back and there is a new GP site in Spain.
