Second British Grand Prix

Post by bob_suru » 25 May 2007, 11:07

Now Lewis Hamilton is going to be the greates f1 driver of all time, should the uk get a second grand prix?. Silverstone looks a bit dated now. How about a London Night race?

a london night race!!!!! :O

i seriously doubt it, however i would love to see f1 return to brands hatch! that would be sweet...

im racing a tvr tuscan race car round there and a 500bhp ford escort mk1 :D

so to have driven on it and for it to be a formula one track would be awesome!!!

YEAH! Brands Hatch would be great! Senna was a master at brands hatch.

I took a lesson with the mansell school of racing out there first in the Audit TTs and then in the single seater 1.8l cars arnold palmer uses... Great Great track...

TVR tuscan or 500bhp escort MK1 would be an entirely different experience m!nd you! Wow!

actually has anyone been to Buckmore Park in Essex? Racing karts there with friends was my favorite weekend passtime... We'd do the 3 hour enduro with 4 drivers... what a good time! terrific competition too... I saw some amazing drivers out there...

That is way to American I recon. F1 is not football nor Nascar or Dragster... I dont agree with the new night race somewhere in "Turkmenistan" either! Changing F1 so that some people will make more money..

sorry to burst everyones brands bubble, but run offs are too small for todays speeds and safety standards and apparently too many trees would be lost if they were extended. shame. :(

I've heard some rumours that Donington might replace Silverstone in 2011, I certainly hope it's just a rumour :frown:
