Greece Finds Site for Formula One Track

Wednesday March 9th, 2005

Greece Finds Site for Formula One Track Greece has found the right site to build a Formula One race track, the country's tourism minister Dimitris Avramopoulos said on Wednesday.

"There is a location in Viotia," he told reporters without providing further details. Viotia is about 100 kilometres north of Athens.

The Greek government's interest in building a Formula One race track comes as its neighbour and rival tourist destination Turkey makes its Formula One grand prix debut in August.

A new circuit is being built on the Asian side of Istanbul.
