A1 GP lost to Durban

The Mercury of June 10, 2008, reported that the A1 Grand Prix, which we had hosted for the past three years, is not returning to Durban. This after being being voted best host city. The reason given is that the cars are to have Ferrari engines next year, which will make them too powerful to negotiate our street circuit. I don’t know about that but I bet money comes into the equasion somewhere. It isn’t yet known where the race will be held in future, maybe at Kyalami. I was fortunate to get a press pass to to the 2007 event and had a great sunburned time. By the way, this isn’t the first time street races have been held in Durban.
