Formula One Could Return To South Africa For The First Time In 30 years.

Formula one could return to Africa for the first time in 30 years as Stenfano Domenicali – head of formula one hopes to bring the Grand Prix to South Africa since it was hosted in 1993 at the 100,000-capacity Kyalami circuit near Johannesburg.

According to Sportsmail, there have been advanced talks as Domenicali is keen to take the sport to the rainbow nation.

Domenicali is said to be on tour to South Africa to add the country to the formula calendar, possibly next year.

Should negotiations be positive, the race would be held at the 2.8-mile Kyalami circuit, north of Johannesburg, which last staged a grand Prix in 1993 after being a mainstay of the roster through the Sixties, Seventies and early Eighties.

The Boss of the sport highlighted the fact that the people of South Africa love the sport.

“There is a great following out there and I think it would be great to be able to highlight just how beautiful the motherland is’.

Chief Executive Domenicali said ” On top of America, on top of China, there is a potential to be in Africa soon. There is a lot of interest there. That’s an area that so far is missing in the geography of our calender’.

It should be noted that Alain Prost from France won the last formula one Grand Prix held in South Africa in 1993.
