With the Boston race cancelled it now seems IndyCar will go to Watkins Glen instead:

No complaints here about that, it’s a belting circuit. However the possibility of a post-season non-championship race in China has ‘I’ll believe it when I see it’ written all over it:

Some useful advice from the race organisers themselves:
> Use public transport
In addition to studying various options with Catalonia’s police force (Mossos d’Esquadra) for getting
to and leaving the Circuit in such a way as to keep traffic problems down to a minimum, the Circuit
will be continuing to offer options for getting to Montmeló by public transport:
– The Sagalés coach company will be making it possible to get to the GP by coach from
Barcelona. The bus stop is located in the Barcelona North Bus Station, platforms 25, 26 and
27, and arrives at the Eastern Area of the Circuit. Tickets cost 12 euros and reservations can
be made from the Sagalés company (www.sagales.com – tel. 902 13 00 14).
-The Spanish railway company Renfe will be reinforcing its line-2 regional-train service from
Barcelona by putting extra places to facilitate getting to the F1® Grand Prix. Renfe will be
putting on special trains linking Barcelona and Montmeló. Once at Montmeló, there are
three ways of getting to Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya: using a special shuttle service, by
taxi or going on foot, which takes about 30 minutes (www.renfe.es).
> Taking advantage of the areas set aside for private vehicles
Recommended exits from the AP7 motorway and the C17 main road are shown for getting to the
Media Car Park, as well as for getting to the other car parks at the surroundings of the Circuit.
> Follow instructions from the police and the organisation staff
Take note of the information posters put up outside and inside the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
For security reasons, no cans, bottles, fireworks or any other potentially dangerous objects may be
brought into the Circuit.6th May 2016, 19:17 at 7:17 pm #319375
The drivers are racing there this weekend’s here’s an onboard lap of the circuit narrated and driven by Tom Coronel:6th May 2016, 14:31 at 2:31 pm #319367
Formula E has abandoned its efforts to host a Russian round of the series in Moscow on June 4th. Attempts to organise a replacement race in Monaco have also failed. Both events were part of the series’ inaugural 2014-15 schedule.
The news means there are only two race weekends left for this year’s championship – Berlin on May 21st and the London double-header on July 2nd/3rd. It’s good news for championship leader Lucas di Grassi too as his 11-point advantage over Sebastien Buemi counts for more now there’s only 90 points left on the table instead of 120.22nd April 2016, 8:14 at 8:14 am #318301
cannot see RB getting rid of DK
Why? Ricciardo’s doing much better. And Ricciardo has already indicated he may not be able to leave Red Bull next year.21st April 2016, 10:56 at 10:56 am #31828220th April 2016, 22:55 at 10:55 pm #318275
@robinrhysjones Thanks again for that tip – they were only on for a brief bit at the end but it shows just how grave the situation was for Lotus last year. They had creditors queueing up…20th April 2016, 22:07 at 10:07 pm #318274

It’s hard to tell much from the picture. Wouldn’t be surprised if they want to fix the awkward pit entrance Tilke put in. But not sure how they could do it with the space they’ve got.

The project has hit a significant setback as Wales’s economy minister has declined to give a guarantee for the £357m investment the circuit is trying to raise:5th April 2016, 15:41 at 3:41 pm #317098
