Yes, GB is part of Europe. When I say outside Europe I mean North and South America, Asia, Africa, Australia/Oceania and Antarctica :)

Another note: Dual continent countries (Russia and Turkey) are considered part of only one continent (in this case Europe).

Seperated by a fair stretch of not so fair water, and language. That tends to make me think it aint part of the continent.

Plus those folks (I could easily include you Aussies) drive on the wrong side of the road :) Nevertheless, they sit on the continental shelf of Europe... So they are Europeans.

Oooh, I'm changing my answer...

It's Donnington Park. Senna won his last race there in 1993 with a Ford in the McLaren. It was called the European GP because the "British GP" was held at Silverstone.

Hey, Gkaytaz. You're are tricky! I was ready to argue, but I had to re-read your clues. I don't know about the track length, but Las Vegas (where I currently reside) only hosted the Formula 1 race for 2 years [1981 and 1982]. I thought it was only held in 1982, at which point Prost was the pole sitte, but Michele Alboreto won. The year before, Alan Jones (a former WDC) won it from pole.

Prost was the pole sitter at Donnigton Park when Ayrton Senna obliterated the field in the difficult to drive, Ford-powered McLaren in 1993. It was his last GP win. Some folks don't consider Britain in Europe, so I outsmarted myself thinking that was how you were trying to throw us off the scent!

:furious:
