No more F1 in Africa
The slide in the value of the Rand against the Dollar meant that the race became impossible although there was an F1 test at Kyalami in 1999, 2000 and earlier this year. There will be no such test this winter and that would seem to end all hopes of an F1 race in southern Africa in the immediate future. There are a couple of North African governments mulling over the idea of bidding for a race but to date there are no concrete plans for F1 to return to the African continent.
