Spanish Grand Prix could become a victim of F1 expansion
The Spanish Grand Prix may be cut as Formula 1 expands into new markets.
The Royal Automobile Club of Catalonia (RACC) has joined the fight to help keep the Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona.
It appears that the annual race at the Circuit de Catalunya could be a victim as Liberty Media makes room for new races at Zandvoort and in Vietnam for 2020.
With the uncertainty continuing, the RACC has issued a statement asking for help.
“The RACC asks all administrations and the business world to make a unity of action to achieve the renewal of the Formula 1 race,” it said. “We want to keep in our country one of the most important sporting events held every year in the world.”
The club said the Spanish Grand Prix contributes EUR 163 million to the economy and 2700 jobs, and also gives the region and Spain “maximum visibility” in the media.
