On Thursday 19th July the organisers of next year's European Grand Prix in Valencia have presented its plans for the Formula 1 Grand Prix in the city in the South of Spain.
In May the organisers revealed their first design, but the final design was revealed today.
The track in Valencia will go through the centre and harbour of the city.
The track will have a length of 5473 m.
Organisers expect to see a lap take around 1 minute and 37 seconds with an average speed of just over 200 km/h.

LMAO you hit the nail on the head there. :D

The new tracks have nothing to do with overtaking Bernie just wants sponsors to be sat in cosy chairs and as long as he is in charge we are gonna keep getting tracks like this and Bahrain :x

If there are places to overtake it could be a nice track, street races in US are a good exemple, though I can see only one place good enough for overtakeing, that straight across the lake

I hope it is going clockwise. Anti-clockwise in certain parts of the track would seem to inhibit overtaking.
I hope Valencia will be a decent track. Looks OK, but a bit too chicaney.

I'm just not a fan of this tracks new layout at all.

The race will be a farce in my opinion but I'll keep my mouth shut about it till F1 gets there. :p
