Covid rules could derail African GP

South Africa’s Formula 1 aspirations have hit a snag in the shape of ongoing covid restrictions. “If you look at Texas, they had 380,000 spectators,” he told Channel Africa eNCA. “I think that’s more than the Olympic Games and 60 percent of those spectators were foreigners. I don’t necessarily think we’re going to attract that many spectators, but we could have between 250,000 and 300,000. “To only be able to accommodate 50 percent of the spectators could put the whole event at risk,” Roux admitted. “We had an international event earlier this year where 2,000 spectators were allowed but we had 1,800 employees on the circuit,” he added.
