Sports fans all over the world are once again getting excited about the upcoming F1 competition, and the associated thrilling addons, such as the F1 Paddock Club. With the first two races of the season already raced and won, the Fornula One competition of 2013 looks like being an amazing competition, according to my husband. This event brings huge amounts of money into a country but sadly since 1993, there has been no Formula One competition held in Africa.
The first South African Formula One event took place in December 1962 in East London. After a few years the race noved to the fast Kyalami circuit, where it continued to be held until 1993.
In 1985, teams mainly opted to boycott the South African Grand Prix on account of apartheid. After apartheid ended in 1991, two more F1 events were held at the circuit, but when the South African Automobile Association bought the course in 1993, they decided it was to expensive to run the F1, and the South African F1 event was no more.In 2012, the boss of Formula One, Bernie Ecclestone said a new venue in South Africa could be on the cards, but as yet, nothing concrete has materialised.
