Sept.07 – Iran has declared to construct a F1 track in Parand City, 35 kilometres (28 miles) south of capital Tehran. The project, as reported by news agency MNA, will be managed by Apex Circuit Design.
Track will measure around 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) in length and cost around $88 million (£55m) to complete. Plans condition that the facility, which would be the country’s first motor racing venue, will be ready within six months.
“We were really surprised after seeing the landscape,” says company Director Martin Baerschmidt. “We want to improve the level of immunity and excitement as well.”
Alireza Sabbagh, Executive Manager of the project, adds: – “Iran has so many young people and there is an increasing tendency for them to drive. Formula 1 has a great future in the Asian country.”
