Hanoi Formula One Grand Prix in 2020
I still can’t believe this, but Vietnam is hosting a Grand Prix for the Formula One World Championships in April 2020. We were in Vietnam when this was announced and now that the circuit designs our out, it’s really exciting to see that this is going to happen.
It’s been designed with one of the longest straights on a race circuit calendar, so expect the highest track speeds, Maximum POWER and driving to the absolute limit! If that wasn’t enough, the track will have 22 corners and is considered to be the 4th street race for the 2020 season.
Construction on the racing track, located just west of the city, reportedly started on in March 2019 breaking the ground for hosting the countries first ever F1 Grand Prix event.
As huge F1 fans we are really excited about this new track and can’t wait to see this event in 2020.
