I've been there, it's one of the most dirt-poor nations in the Western Hemisphere. It's also a little bit dangerous. As in Armed Guard with M-16 standing in front of our Hotel complex entrance dangerous.
Possibly the Helicopter Gunships flying overhead a couple of times in 4 days contributed to my paranoia..
Granted, we were withing 10-15 miles of the Haitian border, but still..
I couldn't conceive of a venue with more of a cultural contrast for F1 on this side of the world.

ha ha ha ha ...imagine that, the teams arrive early in the week and all get a few spliffs on the go! he he, 34 second pit stop for Jenson while the crew look for the other wheel that seems to have been mislaid! Looks like Bernie Shekelstone is forming alliances with any and every current and future despot with enough stolen money to "fund a race"! ha ha, nice work if you can get it!!!! #:)

I am from the DR aand have gone to Montreal's grand Prix in 2 times, the following here is amazing, eventhough it's fan base is upper middle class, but i pitty the previous opinions, this might not be NY, but we are a far cry from the descrption made by the firts guy that gived his opiniion lets get one thin straight WE MIGHT SHARE AN ISLANND, BUT WE ARE NOT THE SAME AS HAITI, we obtained our independence from them in 1844. So back to the important thing, since this is a tourist nation, and a lot of F1 fans around the Americas can't go to the courrent FW venues thats it Canada, Brasil an Austin Tx, DR is smack in the middle and easy to reach. Maybe we wont have it in the next 3or 5 years but why not maybe in leass than 10 years you can come to the DR and watch a F1 cruising in front of a cristal clear beach, ohh my bad red bull allready did that at Cap Cana Juanillo beach 3 years ago. You can see the pictures if you want.

Droog.

Foe shure has dangerous areas like any part on earth, theres good places and bad place everywhere. It only depends on : you get what you paid for.

It is a "poor" country because of the government, but is teh best country. Best climate, you have beautiful beaches, high mountains, a lot of rivers,etc.. You have everything.

Talking about f1 in Dominican.... Dont think so...
