Situated just 10km from the larger city of Mannheim, Hockenheim is accessible via the major cities of Cologne and Frankfurt, HISTORY A circuit that still generates a few misty-eyes amongst purists, the original Hockenheimring is remembered as one of the sport's more remarkable circuits. Long, fast and known as a car-breaker, the quick curves - later punctuated by chicanes - played host to many a classic race. However, with few spectator facilities at the back-end of the 6.8km layout, stretched security measures and concerns over safety, the decision was taken to re-design it. Unsurprisingly, the move to shorten the circuit and cut out the forested sections caused widespread criticism amongst drivers and fans, though its replacement remains well- liked in isolation and is accepted as a far more practical venue. Even if it will never evoke the memories of its iconic predecessor! For full coverage of Formula 1 including driver news, results, qualifying and fantastic images, Www. visit NET
