2012 US Grand Prix confirm for November date



Aug.11 – Formula 1 United States GP is confirming for a considerable date modify, with F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone set his strategy to place the occasion much further into the 2012 season. Instead of its original June 17 slot, the Austin race will now go ahead on November 18, when temperatures have fallen in the state of Texas.

“I have been hoping for a late season race date since this project began and see this as a very positive sign from Formula 1 that it wants its U.S. event to be an over-the-top success,” Hellmund explained. Mr. Ecclestone has dozens of competing issues to consider when it comes to the race calendar. He has to balance the interests of the teams with those of the promoters and even consider the unique situation of each host country. To put our race near the end of the schedule puts us in a prime spot to welcome the world next year – and I could not be more personally and professionally appreciative.”

“The Mayor’s input regarding Central Texas’ air quality during the summer months was obviously important to Formula 1 management,” added Circuit of The Americas President Steve Sexton, “and to their credit, they listened and have responded.First and foremost, we want our fans to have a great experience when they come here. The prospect of milder weather makes that more likely. It also gives us time to better prepare our staff and the thousands of volunteers who will be supporting Formula 1 race week festivities.”
