Everyone remembers that in March this year, Formula 1 teams arrived in Australia, where the first stage of the new season was supposed to take place in Melbourne’s Albert Park, but at the last moment the race had to be canceled due to the threat of the spread of coronavirus.

It is unlikely that anyone will undertake to predict what the situation will be in the spring of 2021, so Australia offered an alternative option for the national Grand Prix, if it cannot be received in Melbourne. There is a certain logic in this, because the epidemiological situation in Victoria remains difficult, it is there that most cases of Covid-19 disease are recorded in this country.

But in the state of South Australia since May 1, only 28 infected have been identified, and there, a hundred kilometers from Adelaide, there is a new Bend Motorsport Park circuit, opened only a couple of years ago.

“I think we are in a very favorable position if the Grand Prix in Melbourne does not give the green light,” said State Premier Stephen Marshall. – If need be, South Australia is ready to host the race. We are not going to poach her, but we have a great track in our state and we are considering any opportunity to host sporting events in South Australia, although of course all of them must be commercially viable.

We don’t have extra money, but high-quality events will help develop economic activity, contribute to economic growth – this is what we are doing now. ”

The Formula 1 race on the city circuit in Adelaide ran from 1985 to 1995, but Bend Motorsport Park is a stationary modern circuit with a track length exceeding 7.7 km – more than at Spa. The maximum configuration circle consists of 35 turns, although many other variations are possible.

However, there is also a serious formal problem: at present, the track has FIA certification at the Grade 2 level, while Formula 1 races require Grade 1. However, the managing director of the circuit Sam Shahin is sure that all the necessary changes and alterations are quite realistic if it will be possible to host the Grand Prix.
