Valencia F1 circuit crumbles

2013-01-24 11:35

FALLING TO PIECES?: The famous Valencia street circuit's hopes of securing an F1 race in 2014 look to be over after it was revealed that the track had become vandelised and dilapidated.

VALENCIA, Spain - Valencia's Formula 1 foray is apparently over with reports that the street circuit is now falling into disrepair.

The chances the former European Grand Prix venue will return to the calendar therefore seem dim, as Marca newspaper publishes images that suggest the facility is no longer being even minimally maintained.

Thieves have stripped the circuit infrastructure of any valuable items like electronic control boxes, while an access tunnel is completely flooded by standing water.

RANSACKED

The report said: "A bridge that cost two million euros is now used only by vagrants."

The pit boxes have been "ransacked", manholes stripped of their covers, and wires pulled out of light posts.

The last Grand Prix at the Valencia street circuit was held in July 2012, and won by Spain's Fernando Alonso.

Marca: "Now, far from the glamour, the neighbours complain that there is no supervision and that thieves have taken everything of any value," said Marca.
