Bernie visits Valencia, again

Wed, 29 November 2006, 03:32

Speculation about a second grand prix in Spain stepped up a notch this week, after F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone paid yet another visit to Valencia.

The city is tipped to bid for a race, but previous rumours had linked the ‘Ricardo Tormo’ test circuit with a necessary F1-spec upgrade.

Ecclestone, however, toured the nearby city on Tuesday, increasing suggestions that a street race is more likely.

The 75-year-old is quoted by local publications as saying the existing circuit is ‘very good’, but insisted that a street course that winds through the Valencia port – perhaps making use of the America’s Cup installations – could provide for a better backdrop.
