street circuit - valencia

this is quite late already but what prompted me to make this is when i read the results i noticed something different and catches my attention. the first ever european GP in another street race on the new urban city circuit in valencia. as i count it, there has been two street races this season and one more to go comes 28 september. and that's a different story and another record making in the history of formula one GP, becoming the first night race in another street race. held in the harbor side streets of valencia, the juan carlos I marina circuit has been called a boring track to formula one enthusiast. the race was simply boring from the start as i understood it from reports and news with less or more likely no overtaking until it was finished. instead the most catching and exciting place during the race was in the pit lane when kimi left the pit stop while the fuel hose was still attached to his car and ran over a mechanic who was refueling.

Yes, the European GP this time was held on a different circuit. I don't know why this transition but was not a great GP. The night GP is surely a one to watch. I am kinda very excited about it and am awaiting it eagerly. I hope it will be a treat to watch and a joy for the drivers and constructors.

well that another marketing strategy they had so showcase every corner of europe. i just saw in the news this morning about singapore's prepartion for the coming and the first ever night GP and you are right, it is and would be a race to watch and to enjoy. it's always been fan to watch street races although the race track design would have an impact in it too but ore or less the singapore night street GP will be the GP to remember in the history of formula one. whoever wins it, his name fore sure will be scribbled in the history book.
