Bernie sparks Cape GP rumour

2013-03-05 13:37

CAPE TOWN GRAND PRIX BACK ON THE CARDS?: F1 maestro Bernie Ecclestone says he wants a race in Cape Town though he's also been made an offer for a Durban race.

Formula 1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone wants to stretch F1's already bursting calendar to 22 races in 2014.

In 2013, with New Jersey's demise, the schedule has dropped from its original 20 to 19 races.

Russia will join the action at Sochi in 2014 and F1 business journalist Christian Sylt reports that Mexico and Thailand could join the calendar in the near future.

'WANT TO BE IN CAPE TOWN'

Ecclestone said: "Having races in the right place is what matters. The teams could probably deal with 22 races."

He said he would like Africa to host a race in the future - as he said a couple of years ago  when there was much controversy about using the then new Green Point Stadium as the pits.

Which, some say, it is now anyway...

Whatever. He added: "I want to be in Cape Town. I've been offered Durban but I think we would be better off in Cape Town."

Take a look at Wheels24's video of the proposed track made at the time and showing how dof the idea was and still is. Why not use the double-decker Foreshore Eyesore (finished off, of course!) for a true spectacle of the city, the harbour and Our Mountain.

It would blow the crap out of Monaco...
