The 1992 South African Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Kyalami on 1 March 1992. It was the first round of the 1992 Formula One season.
Formula One returned to post-apartheid South Africa which had not hosted a Grand Prix since the controversial 1985 event, held during Premier P.W. Botha's state of emergency. It returned to a new Kyalami circuit, which had a different layout and the circuit used part of the old layout.
Famous quotes containing the words grand, african and/or south:
“The Olympian gods cannot have grand passions because they cannot die.”
—Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
“The African race evidently are made to excel in that department which lies between the sensuousness and the intellectualwhat we call the elegant arts. These require rich and abundant animal nature, such as they possess; and if ever they become highly civilised, they will excel in music, dancing and elocution.”
—Harriet Beecher Stowe (18111896)
“History in the making is a very uncertain thing. It might be better to wait till the South American republic has got through with its twenty-fifth revolution before reading much about it. When it is over, some one whose business it is, will be sure to give you in a digested form all that it concerns you to know, and save you trouble, confusion, and time. If you will follow this plan, you will be surprised to find how new and fresh your interest in what you read will become.”
—Anna C. Brackett (18361911)
