    So I’m going to stab at Bahrain as the last circuit to be run in a different configuration to its normal one

    They’re all older circuits that have been added to the F1 calendar (in that order) and modified to be progressively slower. Next A1-Ring?

    Hmmm, both configurations of the Nurburgring (well, and Nordschleife) run clockwise.

    I’m thinking the answer is circuits that have been drastically changed from one coinfiguration to another.

    Monza ~ 33
    Spa ~ 78
    Nurgburgring ~ 82
    And Zandvort… which changed around 89.

    Hockenheimring?

    Not there yet but a lot of you are thinking along the right lines including @Heskin-Radiophonic, @F1matt and @beneverard .

    I promise you it is a pretty simple explanation!

    I’m going to say Fuji. The connection is that all four – Monza, Spa, the Nurbrugring and Fuji – were all redesigned, but the public can still access the leftover roads. Monza has its banking, Spa has the roads running through Burninville and Cheneaux, the Nurburgring has the Nordschliefe and Fuji has the banking that extended in a two-kileomtre loop from the first turn. All four circuits were modified and unlike the original Hockenheim, their original layouts are still intact.

    Good shout Prisoner…

    @Prisoner-Monkeys Nope.

    Remember it’s not just a connection, it’s a sequence. The four are in some kind of order.

    Okay, Monza was reprofiled before both of them. Spa was reprofiled in 1979; Nurburgring reprofiled in 1984….

    Imola?

    maybe its the length of the “old track”….

    @m2kk You’d need a pretty big track to beat one larger than Nordschleife

    Suzuka (Japan). They were the last 4 races of the 1998 F1 season.

    It’s definitely a true sequence but probably not the one Keith’s after…

    EDIT: I’ve misread the source material – it’s not even a sequence (or at least not a valid reasoning for the sequence).
