Another potential African GP venue scratched

Formula 1 will need to scratch Zimbabwe off the list of potential hosts of an African GP. With organisers in Kyalami unable to reach a 2023 race deal with the sport for financial reasons, attention had turned to Zimbabwe – as a $1.2 billion circuit project near the famous Victoria Falls was underway. However, the country’s supreme court has ordered that construction come to a halt due to the objections of local residents, according to Zimlive. Tass, a Russian news agency, says the project was being headed by a Dubai consortium whose lease of 500 hectares of land was nullified by the court.
