Whilst not being a fan of the Melbourne Albert Park circuit, I looked up on YouTube of a drive around the circuit layout during the off season. I can't believe how different it looks. Even more so than Monaco, where Monaco at least retains some of the curbs, and obviously the iconic buildings.
Albert Park is almost unrecognisable though, it must be an incredible logistic challenge to transform that each year for the GP. I'm amazed a purpose built circuit wouldn't be a heck of a lot cheaper in terms of holding a race.
I do plan on making a 2021 Motorsport thread, it’ll probably be at the weekend though. Reckon for the calendars I’ll just be linking to the respective official sites as with the above post, I get a feeling a few races could be changed over the course of the year as things get better/worse.
I think we could see quite a few changes yet to the calendar (which is why I’m not going to bother adding it to the 2021 thread).
I’ve just started writing out the 2021 thread anyway I’ll try not to make it too lengthy but I think I might just mainly talk F1 in the opening post and include other calendars for some of the other series, then we can freely chat anything motorsport within as we have this year. How many people have F1 2020 here anyway? Just wondering whether to include a bit of a hot lap competition for the next race (game/calendar depending of course), with a pre season round for Spain of course (which means we could probably miss a round for the Spanish Grand Prix weekend so we don’t do it twice, or pre season could be Albert Park?), we’d have to make a choice on the car though to level the playing ground.
