Built in 1961, this circuit on the outskirts of Johannesburg took over South Africa's Grand Prix from East London in 1967, offering great corners such as Crowthorn, Barbeque Bend and the Jukskei Sweep. South Africa's apartheid laws eventually made Formula One stay away, but now that they're gone the track has been too chopped to be of interest to Formula One.
