Formula 1 travels almost all over the world during a season. However, there is one continent that is not represented in sport: Africa. Opportunities for fast racing in Africa are currently being explored, as are options for a possible second GP in the United States.
In a conversation with Motorsportweek.com Global Race Promotion Director Chloe Targett-Adams has announced that Africa is in sight as one of the places where a new circuit could be built. In fact, Targett-Adams considers it a priority to explore possibilities in Africa.
“Africa is a continent where we do not run and this is simply not true. It is a place that we would like to visit, it is a priority. We have been in talks for several years about the possible options and hope to be able to race them in the near future. “
Africa is not the only option for a new circuit
Targett-Adams doesn’t just have Africa in sight. She also talks about new places in Asia and the United States that Formula 1 could do. The latter remains a strategic priority for a second circuit as regards Adams.
“The United States remains a clear strategic priority. We have a great race in Austin and look forward to working with our promoter there for years to come. We are looking for options for a second race, a place and hope to be able to strengthen the race proposal for the United States.
Adams does not yet have a clear point in mind, but the goal is there. If Formula 1 does get a race in addition to the existing US GP and a race at Arika, almost all parts of the world will be equipped with circuits for racing. It is not yet clear if this has consequences for the racing calendar as well, but it is conceivable that it will be possible to switch between venues from season to season. After all, the Portuguese GP is already back and there is a new location for a GP in Spain.
