Gimmicky idea anyway, let it die. F1 needs to bring back some of the classic circuits, the REAL circuits, before silly 'publicity-generator' events like this.

Absolutely agree with you Josh. Brands Hatch, and even, dare I mention, Donnington Park, should definitely be on your list. I'm old enough to remember plans that got to quite an advanced stage for racing around the Streets of Birmingham during the 80's. They went the same way that any attempt for a GP in London will go. Ultimately it comes down to money for Bernie's Piggy Bank, and the lack of any political will. Although I thought Boris was up for it, I must be mistaken.
