ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates – Saturday, September 4, 2010 - The UIM World F1 summer break is nearing an end with crews bracing themselves for a hectic schedule from late September through to mid-December. The programme kicks off with a new venue, Linyi, China, yet another new host city in this growth market.
Linyi is a famous cultural city with a 2400-year history. In the 1970s, the Sunzi's Art of War and Sunbin's Art of War that stirred the world were unearthed here. It is a place propitious for giving birth to a great man, Zhuge Liang, the well-known politician and strategist of the Three Kingdoms Period, and Wang Xizhi, the famous calligrapher in the Eastern Jin Dynasty were all born here. As a new developing modern city, Linyi has perfect infrastructure and the Yanzhou-Shijiusuo Railway at the east section of 'Eurasian Continental Bridge' runs across Linyi City from east to west.
Beijing-Shanghai Expressway passes the city from north to south. It's very convenient for marine transportation for its location, adjoining to Qingdao, Rizhao and Lianyungang ports. The modern and comfortable Linyi Airport plays host to various airlines, which connect Linyi City with large and medium-sized cities all over the country. You can also take advantage of the city's advanced communications, abundant electric power, rich natural resources, developed commerce and trade, charming tourism environment, advantageous investment opportunities and favorable foreign-related services. The most marked superiority of Linyi City is its honest warm hearted Linyi people, as well as in its great potentialities and commercial environment of sustainable development.
After Linyi, the tour moves onto Liuzhou, a city that has already proved popular with F1 before ending the Oriental part of the championship in Shenzhen, just across the water from Hong Kong.
