That’s more like it.
These designs remind me of various half-hearted street circuits we’ve seen in series like A1GP..
@ajokay I thought similar.. but the two cities that have been proposed are both in North America (unless they count Mexico City in that).
Formula E have revealed another of its circuits and this time it’s one F1 cars have on before – albeit a very long time ago.
The Californian round will be held at Long Beach on an abridged version of the IndyCar track, which of course in turn shares some corner with the track F1 used from 1976 to 1983. Here’s the layout:
Hmmm…. going to Long Beach and Monaco makes it almost feel like a reconditioned AVUS should host the Berlin round instead of a track at Tempelhof airport.
I quickly designed a Formula e AVUS and isn’t too crazy or bad.
It would require some autobahn armco to be removed to allow the chicane from one lane to the other but seeing that grandstand reconditioned and filled with fans would be worth it.
Have the track run clockwise (the opposite way AVUS was run), with the start line after the final chicane and just before the nordkurve with the old pit exit being the pit entrance.
The old pit lane could be turned back into a pit lane from a carpark with a grandstand lining the outside of the nordkurve.
Nice to have Long Beach.. another race that fits in with the race at another series.
It would be nice to have AVUS.. I imagine that it’s probably cheaper just to lay a track at the abandoned airport, than reconfigure AVUS back into a race track, after they took that option away sadly.
