The Mexican Grand Prix, which was held on Nov. 1, has been named the “Best Event of the Year” by the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile, or FIA, the Mexican Sports Organization, or OMDAI, said Wednesday.
“It is highly satisfying to know that Mexico once again achieved this,” FIA vice president Jose Abed said, adding that since organizers announced the return of F1 racing to the country the goal had been to host an event of the highest standards.
Formula 1 racing returned to Mexico this year after a 23-year absence, the OMDAI said, noting that the Mexican Grand Prix had been named the circuit’s best event of the year in 1986.
The award, presented during an FIA meeting in Paris, praised organizers for the fine job they did in putting together the Mexican Grand Prix, the OMDAI said in a statement.
The Mexican Grand Prix took place Oct. 30 to Nov. 1 at Mexico City’s Hermanos Rodriguez circuit, treating racing fans to F1 competition for the first time since 1992.
Total attendance topped 300,000 over the event’s three days, with 134,850 fans turning out for the race on Nov. 1.
Mexico City officials considered the event a huge success since it boosted hotel occupancy in the capital to nearly 100 percent.
