Well, there was the 2011 Japanese GP at Twin Ring Montegi which was called off prior due to an earthquake..... but that race was held later in the year at Aida I think it was.
You're not talking F1 I'm assuming..?
I got a few things wrong. I was thinking Pacific GP 1995 at Aida! Something in my head said it changed venue and I posted without checking anything.. Senior moment. :blush:

Irony is that, when you remove the Indy 500 races in the 50's from the list, the 1000th race would have been: Monza 2019.

Aida was such a fun, ittle and much-loved circuit. I wouldn't mind to have it back on the calendar.

I thought people loved the beautiful surrounding landscape and the flowing nature of the track?

The surrounding landscape meant that the teams had to locate miles from the circuit. It was a logistical nightmare.

I loved driving it on gp2 though

In more Chinese news, I hear they're thinking about a second Chinese grand prix.

But don't worry, they want a street circuit so it'll be fine :)

Really unusual to see this - Vettel asking his mechanics to help out the Toro Rosso of Albon, which had its brakes on fire. The Ferrari people came to their aid until the STR mechanics were on scene to take over:
