Report – Spa to alternate F1 race with French GP return? image

(Inautonews.com/GMM) Spa-Francorchamps could be the key to France’s return to the formula one calendar.

The French Le Journal Du Dimanche newspaper reports the possibility of the famous Belgian race alternating annually with a circuit in France.

“I’ve been asked about it earlier this year by French officials,” admitted Belgian GP promoter Andre Maes.

“This may be interesting, so I am waiting for further news,” he said.

The Belgian GP has admitted to worrying about being priced out of F1 due to rising race sanctioning fees.

French grand prix host Magny-Cours dropped off the calendar after the 2008 season due to “economic problems”.
