During a visit to Kenya last week the FIA PRESIDENT JEAN TODT has ruled out any possibility for an African formula one taking place within the next three years as it had been said in some sections of the press.
He was meeting Kenyan motor sports officials who are lobbying for the return of the WRC\FIA championship calender to Kenya.
South Africa is the only African country ever to host the prestigious formula one event during the apartheid years at Kyalami racetrack.
The last race during the apartheid era was in 1985 whereby a number of teams boycotted the race due to international pressure.
Formula one returned briefly in the 1990s after apartheid was kicked out of South Africa.
