No disrespect, they're fantastic facilities. They just don't have that exceitment of Monaco, Spa, Suzuka or the old Hockenheimring.
I was a bit harsh, they're not rubbish, they're just not my favourite tracks.

One of many reasons why Turkey is third world: its water generally is quite unclean (my Turkish friend says). And besides there is no point arguing, Turkey, at the moment is third world, but i hope this will get better with contining growth, adding to the strong economy that Turkey already has.

Turkey is first world. Check http://www.nationsonline.org/oneworl..._countries.htm for lists of first, second and third world countries. Of course, there is a level of subjectivity to this but it's generally accurate.

If turkey is so first world how come many people are flocking to the United Kingdom and hardly the other way round. Also this map is wrong. How can south korea be third world and turkey not? Anyway, enough arguing turkey is third world everyone knows that.

I respect your opinion . They probably need time to get used to, with time they'll get the F1 soul.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Developed_country
or write first world countries and Turkey to google
Turkey politically considered as a first world country.
Its economically considered as a "developing" first world country.
and some people's thoughts dont change the reality, Turkey is a first world country but it needs more time to become fully developed.

Hey, I've got a couple good ideas!!

1)No more stupid off-topic fighting about who is third world and who is first world...blah...blah...blah... It's really getting old!!

2)More talking on-topic about this amazing track outside Istanbul and our favorite sport, Forumla One Racing!!!

By the way, look for me at the US Grand Prix in Indianapolis!! I'll be there overlooking the first hairpin turns. YAAAHHOOOOOO!!!!

And they had better let me bring my camera in, because I want to post some great close ups you won't see on any Formula One website.

It's about an eight hour drive from Atlanta.

I know that they Formula One was trying to get a West Coast race going in Long Beach, but as they already have 19 races this year and are adding Cancun, Mexico, next year, I don't think there's much room in the schedule for one more race. Unless of course they drop one of the weaker race tracks like Silverstone in England. But their saving grace is that so many of the top racing teams have their headquarters within a few miles of Silverstone.

Silverstone's one of the better tracks on the circuit, the facilities just suck.

All I know is that Bernie Ecclestone, the basic owner of F1, has threatened to pull the race from Silverstone unless they do some major upgrades.

Yes, that's to do with facilities and transport - the track itself is great.
