Stefan GP Confirms F1 Bid for 2010, Reveals Plans for Serbian F1 Track

It's been a while since we've last heard of the Stefan GP organization, the Serbian project that was very close to make its maiden Formula One appearance in 2010. With US F1 failing to make the grid this year, the International Automobile Federation (FIA) decided to halt the selection process for the current campaign, telling Stefan GP and the other candidates for an F1 spot to show their interest for the 2011 season in due time.

After Epsilon Euskadi and Durango, the Serbian team now confirmed their interest of joining the Great Circus in 2011. Their decision was announced via a press release on their official site, in which they also reveal a new partnership with the Mayor of Stara Pazova for a Formula One circuit 25 kilemeters away from capital Belgrade.

STEFAN GP would like to make a public announcement that the AMCO Corporation and its owner Zoran Stefanovic have today signed an agreement with the Mayor of Stara Pazova, located 25km from Belgrade, Serbia, to build the STEFAN TECHNOLOGY PARK. This will include a racing circuit suitable for the competition of Formula One, and a technical complex that will serve as STEFAN GRAND PRIX’s team headquarters upon completion in two years time,” said the press release.

I think this is an excellent development for our team, Stara Pazova city, region and country. This is proof that we want to put ourselves on the map as a serious hi-tech company, and that we are serious about competing in Formula One for the long term,” said the team's boss Zoran Stefanovic.

According to the press release, the new circuit would measure 3538.57m in length, while benefiting from a main straight line of 807.21m. Additional info on the track is that it would have 5 straight lines and 16 corners (5 left and 11 right).

“StefanGP would also like to officially announce our bid for the FIA 2011 Formula One World Championship,” added the press release from the Serbian team.
