Formula One wants to go back to Africa, with the Moroccan city of Marrakesh and SA’s Kyalami circuit keen to host a race, commercial MD Sean Bratches said last Thursday. "It's a marketplace in which we would like to race," Bratches said at a Sport Industry Breakfast Club event, two days after Formula One announced the return of the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort in 2020 after a 35-year absence. Morocco and SA have hosted world championship grands prix in the past, Casablanca in 1958 and SA in East London in the 1960s and Kyalami 20 times between 1967 and 1993. "We race on five continents now and the last habitable continent that we don’t race in is Africa," said Bratches.
