I’d like to see a Grand Prix in somewhere in Kingston, Jamaica, the atmosphere would be intense as hell. I’d also be interested to see how an Formula One race on the highways of Tokyo would go, but that’s probably because I’ve seen too many movies.
Being biased, I’d love a Finnish GP, even if it’s just a one-off, at some point of my life. I know it’s completely unrealistic – Finland is a very small country in terms of population, though I’m sure the grandstands would be packed. Have you ever watched a race without seeing at least one Finnish flag being waved in the crowd? I don’t think I have. Motor racing is a big deal here.
However. I don’t really like street circuits, so I’d rather see a new, purpose-built track, and that could be anywhere in the world so long as it’s an exciting track.
It’s not a city. In fact, it’s not really a place. It’s a road – the Transfagarasan Highway, which Top Gear declared to be the best road in the world. We just need to figure out how to build a 5-6km circuit on it.
Gold Coast, i seriously love that track..
otherwise, New York.. everyone says it, and it’s probably inpossible to do. but having a race that goes through Times Square would probably be the most amazing thing in the world
It has to be Sydney. Can imagine a track across the harbour bridge, down the Cahill Expwy, Macquarie St, through the middle of town and around Millers Pt and back for a reverse across the bridge for a u-turn. Now that’s scenery!
I’ve always thought a Scandinavian Grand Prix has been missing from the calendar, given the racing heritage and the cooler temperatures could make for some interesting and different racing. I’m not talking the Arctic circle or anything like that (way too cold!), I’m thinking perhaps Stockholm or somewhere south in Sweden. I might draw up a street circuit if I can be bothered.
