Rome to host F1

Rome is still on track to host a round of the world championship in 2012 or 2013, the Italian capital's mayor revealed recently.

A possible street race in the famous city has been on the cards for quite some time now, but it had been thought that political obstacles had thwarted the plans. But mayor Gianni Alemanno told a morning television programme on Rai 1 television stating that "from 2012 or no later than 2013, a grand prix will take place in Rome. "This will be the second race for Italy, because the race at Monza is guaranteed," he added.

It is believed the city's EUR district has been selected by Hermann Tilke as the site for the race, where the roads are wider as compared to the inner city. Alemanno continued: "There are problems because we have to reach full agreement with the inhabitants of EUR. We have an agreement at the international level. "There are no certainties, but our promise is very solid," he added.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
