Three new race venues set to be announced by Liberty Media
- Updated: March 1, 2018
Auto Motor und Sport that Liberty Media is set to announce deals that will see Formula One races being hosted by Vietnam, Miami and Argentina.
“The circuits are already in the process of approval by the FIA,” said correspondent Michael Schmidt.
The report further went on to claim that the Vietnamese venue is a street circuit in the capital Hanoi, while Miami will be another city course.
The old circuit in Buenos Aires will be used in Argentina, it has been claimed.
Schmidt said, “According to our information, Hanoi and Miami will almost certainly be on the calendar next year.”In Buenos Aires, financing of the track renewal and the entry fee is not yet clear.”
This comes after former Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone had recently claimed that a deal with Vietnam was in the pipeline. He didn’t forget to mention that he too was presented the opportunity to add the venue a few years ago.
He told Forbes, “The deal I could have signed with Vietnam would have been $64 million, (Liberty) are going to get the deal done with the people in Vietnam for sure.”
