Northern California Site Considered for a Formula 1 Circuit

Circuit of The Americas founder Tavo Hellmund mentioned a new Formula 1 circuit was being considered somewhere in Northern California in an interview published by the Austin Statesman-American this evening. 

Hellmund told the Statesman that a Northern California party was interested in building a grand prix circuit and had approached him in the last year about the possibility.  While permits and additional land would be necessary, Hellmund feels the land would be a good location for a circuit, and good enough to send Formula 1 circuit experts Tilke GmbH to have a look at the site.

This news comes comes after two Formula 1 circuits Hellmund has been involved with recently hosted the United States Grand Prix and the Grand Prix of Mexico in consecutive weekends.  Circuit of The Americas held its fourth USGP on October 25th amidst declining attendance figures, changing political climate towards the race, and severe weather, while Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez held an inaugural race after a 23 year absence from the Formula 1 calendar for a sold-out audience with over 330,000 attendees over the weekend in Mexico City.
