Whiting in Austin to inspect progress of US GP venue
25 September, 2012
Sep.25 (GMM) Two months before the venue’s inaugural US grand prix, F1 race director, safety delegate and technical development chief Charlie Whiting is in Austin to inspect the brand new Circuit of the Americas.
The Austin American Statesman newspaper reports that Whiting must give Austin the nod “or there will be no” grand prix in mid November.
Whiting’s first inspection of the bespoke circuit was in June, and he said at the time: “It is clear that the significant resources Circuit of the Americas has committed to completing this facility on time and to FIA specifications is making a difference.”
