Snell Parade / North Beach, Durban 4001, South Africa
Racing on the streets of Durban first took place in January 1939, in a simple course using Snell Parade up iuntil the 1950s. Several different layouts have been used since, for SA Touring Cars in 2004, and more recently for the for A1 GP races between 2005-7. The circuit hasn't been used since A1GP moved the race (which was the only street circuit on their calendar) to Kyalami, but the FIA World GT1 championship has listed a race at Durban in 2010, subject to ASN confirmation.
A narrow, bumpy circuit, the first A1 GP race attracted over 100,000 spectators. The circuit runs right alongside the fabulous sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean, with the start finish line on Snell Parade, next to the beach. The circuit runs clockwise, down to a hairpin at North Beach, before heading back down Snell Parade and left onto Argyle Road, before a right onto NMR Avenue. The circuit then turns right onto Battery Beach road, before right again onto Snell Parade which snakes back down to the seafront for another lap.
