Baku hosts the 2016 European F1 grand prix.
Private jet European F1 Grand Prix
The European Formula one (F1) Grand prix is the eighth race in the 2016 Formula one (F1) season in Azerbaijan at the Baku City circuit in Baku on the 19th June 2016.
The European Grand Prix (sometimes referred to as the Grand Prix of Europe) is a Formula One event that was introduced during the mid-1980s and was held regularly from 1999 until 2012. The most recent host venue for this event was the Valencia Street Circuit in Valencia, Spain, hosting the race from 2008 until 2012. The race was removed from the calendar in 2013. In 2016 the race will return, being run on a street circuit in Baku, Azerbaijan
In earlier years, the European Grand Prix was not a race in its own right but just an honorific title; one of the national Grands Prix was also designated as the European Grand Prix. The first race to be so named was the 1923 Italian Grand Prix, held at Monza and won by Carlo Salamano in a Fiat and the last one was the 1977 British Grand Prix.
Since its reintroduction, the European Grand Prix has usually been held in a country in Europe that also holds a national Grand Prix in that same year.
The European Grand Prix was created as an honorific title by the AIACR, the FIA’s predecessor in the organisation of motor racing events. The first race to receive the title was the Italian Grand Prix, in 1923, and it was followed by the French Grand Prix and Belgian Grand Prix. After a hiatus in 1929, Spa received the last honorific title of the pre-WWII years, in 1930.
The title was revived by the FIA after World War II, and was first given to the Belgian Grand Prix in 1947, and was distributed across several countries until the 1977 British Grand Prix, the last race to receive the honorific title. All post-war honorific European Grands Prix were Formula One races except for the 1952 event, which was run to Formula Two regulations.
The Italian Grand Prix was named the European Grand Prix seven times, which was more than any other race. It received the title three times in the 1920s.
The Baku City Circuit lies 12 kilometres away from Baku Heydar Aliyev International airport (UBBB / GYD), and takes around 25 minutes by car subject to traffic.
