rcan2010sa37 Hispania Racing Team preview   Europe
Hispania Racing, HRT F1 Team, is looking forward to its second home Grand Prix of the year, at the Valencia Street Circuit. For the third time since 2008, this Valencia track is the venue for the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe. With a total length of 5.419 km and 25 corners, the Valencia track is a unique street circuit where most of the action is carried out along the water’s edge of the Juan Carlos I Marina: skimming past the quay, through the port and the historic fish market, along the docks and shipyard gates, and briefly following the course of the River Turia. The construction of the City of Arts and Sciences by architect Santiago Calatrava and the fact that the city’s marina was the base of the 32nd America’s Cup in 2007, the most important sailing competition in the world, make Valencia a fashionable destination of the Mediterranean.
