OK, this probably isn’t really worthy of a Forum topic, but I can’t think of anywhere else to put it. It’s too long for Twitter, and too random for the round-up. It seems a bit complicated as well so I hope people can make sense of my ramblings!
Anyway, I was thinking about how much the calendar has changed over the years, and I wondered how long you’d have to go back to find a sequence of 3 (or more) consecutive Grand Prix’s which are no longer on the calendar.
I reckon you’d have to go back to 2006 to find a three race sequence of circuits which aren’t on the 2011 calendar: Indianapolis, Magny Cours and Hockenheim. Also, the race that preceded that sequence, Montreal, wasn’t on the calendar in 2009, so there was a brief period where all four circuits were gone. However, Hockenheim still has a GP every two years, so maybe it doesn’t count?
So, are there any other statto’s out there who can think of any more multiple race sequences from past calendars that have now disapeared?
