Formula 1 VinFast Vietnam Grand Prix Reveals Hanoi Circuit Logo & Grandstand Names

The Vietnam Grand Prix Corporation (VGPC), Promoter of the Formula 1 VinFast Vietnam Grand Prix 2020, today revealed the Official Logo of F1’s newest track – the Hanoi Circuit – that will host the pinnacle of motorsport for the very first time next April 3rd -5th. In addition, VGPC also unveiled the titles for the circuit’s Grandstands, named after 9 iconic Vietnamese cities and locations.
In naming the Hanoi Circuit Grandstands, the promoter’s aim has been to pay tribute to some of Vietnam’s most famous and important landmarks, major cities and provinces whilst also blending each location’s characteristics with the circuit’s own at each Grandstand’s position along the 23-Turn, 5,607km long track.
As such, the Th?ng Long {Hanoi’s traditional name} Grandstand is located at the Starting Grid, symbolizing the constant forward motion, energy and progress of Vietnam’s capital city, whilst the Grandstand at Turns 2, 3 & 4 – whose winding arc shape symbolises a flying dragon – is named after the world famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ha Long Bay, whose very name means ‘Bay of the Descending Dragons’.
In addition, the names of each Grandstand were arranged in such a way to run in geographical order from North to South Vietnam following the sequence of turns from the beginning of the track to the end.
The CEO of the Vietnam Grand Prix Corporation, Ms. Le Ngoc Chi, commented earlier on today’s Hanoi Circuit logo reveal and Grandstand naming: “We are proud to reveal the Hanoi Circuit logo alongside our Grandstand names to the world. The new logo reflects the energy, dynamism and progress of our capital city and the incredible new Hanoi Circuit while the naming of each Grandstand after iconic Vietnamese cities and landmarks is our way of both paying tribute to Vietnam’s vibrant modern culture and rich history as well as helping to educate our international guests a little more on all this country has to offer. This also reflects our ongoing efforts to promote Hanoi to the millions of F1 viewers aound the world and to demonstrate Hanoi’s pride in it’s capability to build a world-class car racing and entertainment facility and to deliver one of the most prestigious sporting events.
