The management of the Istanbul Park circuit dreams of returning the national Grand Prix to the World Cup calendar, because the Formula 1 race in the suburbs of Turkey’s largest city took place from 2005 to 2011.

This year, the decision to hold it was made at the last moment, when already during the season, amid a pandemic, a special version of the calendar was made up, thanks to which several European tracks, such as Mugello, Portimao and Imola, also received the stages of the championship.

“Our goal is to sign long-term agreements next year so that the race will be included in the calendar on a permanent basis,” said Vural Ak, head of Intercity, which owns the Istanbul circuit. “Of course, this should be done on economically reasonable terms.”

Initially, the organizers of the Istanbul Park race planned to hold it with spectators, but the Turkish government banned this, and the Grand Prix will be held in front of empty stands.

“Of course we’re upset,” Ak admitted. “We planned to create a very good environment for the race, and the audience would have contributed as a record number of tickets were sold in a short period of time. The riders love our challenging track, especially since we have just updated the asphalt surface.

If the race is successful this year, we will have the opportunity to start negotiations with Formula 1 on plans for 2021 and subsequent years immediately after it.
