Not sure why it would want to but race-starved fans might find this
Yes. It would certainly be interesting.
Hook up a generator/alternator to Professor Sid's / Dr. Eric
Sidney Watkins grave and you would possibly generate more
energy from the spinning than many F1 cars generate.
At the most dangerous spots, where you normally wish to
find wide spin off areas, you find an abutment and a
crowd filled grandstand. Very interesting.
A brake / DRS / suspension failure as you do the turn in
to apex at the new Copse might be very memorable
(What??? looks like under 50' from where a car would leave
the track to the cement barrier and catch fence??).

The Hutchinson 100 motorbike race used to be run the “wrong” way around
I quite appreciate our fellow motor sports participants,
and we sometimes meet with them (bikers) about common areas
of desired track improvements, however their acceptance
of routine fatalities surprises me. I'm led to recall all the
late 1950 articles about free men able to freely chose their
own passions and risks?
Once personal injury lawyers became able to advertise,
and juries started feeling very sympathetic to widows,
that kind of got diminished.
If you wish a mild amusement and waste of your time,
you might look at a race track that was designed and
built from the beginning, to be run both ways.
Go to Google Maps and check out Oregon Raceway Park,
Grass Valley Oregon, USA.
Now, keep in mind, that track has it's unique nasty
features, but it's not made particularly worse by
going the wrong direction (too many blind nasty corners).
