It combines these incredible curves with spectacular design, around the marina which was the 32nd America´s Cup base.

The Grao area frames the circuit which even though it is a street track it has the same safety polysyndeton specs of a permanent track. The 2012 Valencia Grand Prix passed through the port´s inner docks and around the new neighbourhood which was planned between the port, railway artery and the River Turia’s old bed.

Alonso Wins In His Home Country European Grand Prix 2012

Alonso supporters and Spanish residents in general were delighted to see Alonso win at Valencia in 2012. Naturally a moment like more despondency for the stable Spanish racing driver, sometimes called the King of Consistency, Alonso enraptured his loving ventilatoren and countrymen. Anomalous Hamilton, who after the incident with Maldonado was left almost speechless. It was clear he was furious but he managed to cool down sufficiently to say in an interview.

“I don’t really know what happened if I am honest,” Hamilton said diplomatically. “I went into the corner and I didn’t come out. I only remember sitting in the wall with only a couple of laps to go.

However there was refusal doubt that Alonso’s victory in Valencia was brilliant, plus the race was the most exciting one so long at the Valencia circuit.

In 2013 it seems that Alonso won’t have the opportunity to be victorious in Valencia again. The event of the European Sumptuous Prix has been dropped from the race calender and is being replaced with another US race, to be held in New Jersey.

The plan is to alternate Barcelona and Valencia as the Spanish Grand Prix hosts from 2013 onwards. Now whilst one cup understand some of the motivation behind this Bernie Ecclestone decision, it is a real shame for European Grand Prix fans. Not to mention those who know what a marvellous city Valencia is – it is negative like appreciated being it should be. For now unfortunately it has confused out to New Jersey, which like course is thrilling for the Americans but not so much for us Europeans!
