1993 Indonesian Grand Prix

The 1993 Indonesian Grand Prix was a Formula Brabham race held in August, 1993 at the Sentul International Circuit near Citeureup, Indonesia. It was the first round of a two event Pan-Pacific series for the Australian based Formula Brabham category. It was the first race held at the newly constructed state-owned racetrack, built in an attempt to secure a Formula One Grand Prix, specifically for the 1994 Formula One season.

With no local form of open wheel motor racing occurring in Indonesia as it had been several years since a motor racing circuit had operated in the country, organisers looked into importing a field of racing. After investigating the potential costs of importing the European Formula 3000 Championship and several Formula 3 series, the geographically closer Australian Formula Brabham series was selected.

Famous quotes containing the words grand and/or indonesian:

    We had heard of a Grand Fall on this stream, and thought that each fall we came to must be it, but after christening several in succession with this name, we gave up the search. There were more Grand or Petty Falls than I can remember.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The inference is, that God has restated the superiority of the West. God always does like that when a thousand white people surround one dark one. Dark people are always “bad” when they do not admit the Divine Plan like that. A certain Javanese man who sticks up for Indonesian Independence is very lowdown by the papers, and suspected of being a Japanese puppet.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)
