Florida does have the IMSA Daytona 24hr race, too. CART and the old Grand Am used to hold a "Grand Prix of Miami" on the road course at Homestead Raceway. The Tans Am still races there.

Well, looks like the 'Miami Vote' is tomorrow (Thursday) and it's no surprise that this is pretty much a formality as one of Liberty Media's options on their "wish list".

All the best,
Cal :)

Liberty is reportedly in talks with New York and Las Vegas as well.

The city passed a resolution refusing to let the organizers use a piece of city land. If the proposal goes forward, the track will have to be redesigned.

and looks like a current driver on the grid wants to design the track - hardly fair. No prizes for guessing who  ::)

Schumacher was consulted on the design of Malaysia.  I'm surprised that Hamilton wouldn't know that.  I do agree with him that current F1 drivers should have input into F1 tracks.  Things that SEEM like great passing zones just never seem to work out that way.

A metropolitan area with large avenues provides some flexibility for curve layout.

Schumacher also had input into the modern Hockenheim layout, and got a Schumacher Kurve in thanks. Ironically he had less success with the redesigned venue than with the original version...

Granted, but building a city track is nothing like using a blank sheet of paper like Malaysia.  It here are so many considerations regarding local access, track access, view-ability, safety (of community AND competitors.  No WAY would a driver have anywhere near the credentials to make any of those decisions.

Hey, whatever the track if it materialises then I'll certainly be in attendance at this one :)

Presumably it would be akin to an architect working with an engineer, someone has the vision, and the real work is done by the guy who actually has to make sure it can be built.

So, going with the same approach ... if they let Romain or Max provide their "input" and put their ideas forward towards a new track design, would it turn into an indoor stock car arena???  :DD

All the best,

Count me out. Miami is a fine city. But it's a so-so racing circuit at best. Fine for a feeder series like Formula E but no where near F1 standards.

Miami Beach, on the other side of the Intercoastal, is a wonderful city.
