Unfortuantly this is not the GP I had in mind, A1 does not come near to formula 1, I know the feeling Durbsboi, I am from the Netherlands and I think we didn't have a GP since I was born or something the A1 we do have at Zandvoort/Netherlands. (which is a fantastic circuit by the way, and along the beach, shame about the wheather though...)


Biggest sporting occasion in the world, yeh sure, WC of soccer is even bigger than the olympics bro.

I know but you'll have to share the glory, I doubt if a lot of people can give the cities who host the WC in Germany all 8 or 10, even I don't know if I won't miss one.
Ofcourse it is good PR but to camparison, I could easely give the Olympic cities from the last twenty years, No pro bro.

But maybe I am underastemating Durban, which I think I don't because I have got SA in general pretty high we'll see like always

CHICAGO! The capital of the Midwest and a booming city in the US, if not then Buenos Aires, or an African Nation.

BA is very likely to be the host city.
And for those who mention financial crisis, it happened in 2001...and let me remind you that we're in 2006, not 2001 anymore!!
Argentina overcame its crisis impressively, and is developing fastly in construction of airports, roads, railroads, etc.

Please explain to me why you imagen that BA is "very likely" to be chosen as host city for the 2016 games?

I think BA has a pretty good shot, as there's not yet been a South American games yet. Same as a credible African bid...
