We hand the reigns over to Calan Williams, who crafts a brand-new addition to the Formula 3 calendar.
Choosing everything from the country, to the celebrity that he would invite, the Jenzer Motorsport driver creates a new race weekend.
WHERE WOULD THE RACE BE HELD?
“I would 100% hold the race in Australia, it would be nice to have a local race at home. It doesn’t rain very often either, so it would make for a nice dry event. I am from Perth and that is where I would hold the race, to be exact.
“We have the Virgin Australia Supercars round at my local track, but other than that, there isn’t a whole lot of racing in Perth, so it would be great to have F1 there with F2 and F3. It would be great for tourism.”
HOW WOULD THE TRACK BE LAID OUT?
“I would like a mixed circuit, part street race, part traditional. The street circuit section would be fast and flowing. I would take the swimming pool section from Monaco and Pouhon from Spa, for a start.
“I would find a way to include Maggots and Becketts too, but in the style of a street track. That first half of the track wouldn’t be great for overtaking, but it would be fun to drive.
“The other half of the track would make up for the lack of overtaking in the first half. There would be lots of opportunities and plenty of side-by-side racing. Some straights and hairpins and a few banked corners.”
DAY OR NIGHT?
“I quite like the concept of a twilight race. Starting as the sun is setting and finishing at night time with fireworks at the end. That would light it up nicely and make everything fancy."
DRY OR WET?
“Ideally, it would start dry, and then there would be a drop of rain during the race. The race would then finish with a dry line. That would make for some interesting strategies and would be good for anyone who can adapt.”
WHICH CELEBRITY WOULD YOU INVITE TO THE RACE?
“Arnold Schwarzenegger would be awesome. He could make an appearance on camera and recreate some of his iconic movie lines. I think that would be great.
“At the start of the race, he could say 'start your engines' over the megaphone in his thick Austrian accent.”
