JUST IN: USGP CANCELLED for 2008

I just got this email in and, while also posted in Motorsports, not everyone goes there. Now I am just pissed.

July 12, 2007

Dear Mark:

I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has worked toward securing a Formula One event in 2008 and beyond.

After my recent meetings with Formula One Ltd. CEO Bernie Ecclestone, we have mutually agreed to not schedule Formula One racing at Indianapolis in 2008.

It has been a pleasure having the United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis, and I hope that as we approach our Centennial Era at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, an opportunity might present itself that would allow its return.

I would like to take this time to thank you for your support of Formula One and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway over the past eight years.

Although the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will not be hosting a Formula One race in 2008, we are always looking to the future. With that in mind, we will have a historic motorsports announcement at 3:30 p.m. ET Monday, July 16. I want to strongly encourage you to log on to www.indianapolismotorspeedway.com to view this special event.

On behalf of the Hulman-George family and the staff at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, thank you again for your patience and understanding, and I hope that you consider attending one of our events in 2008.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to give us a call at (800) 822–INDY or (317) 492–6700 if we can be of further assistance.
Sincerely,

Tony George
Chief Executive Officer
Indianapolis Motor Speedway

I never get that pissed.

I have been at every F1 race in the US since the mid 70s [except two] and it is a shame that Bernie doesn't like the fact that ONLY 125-150,000 fans show up for this one.

To be fair, this race had the least attendance of any I have been to. Could have been the 95 degree heat or the complete lack of promotion by Tony George. Living less than 200 miles away, if I did not follow the sport I would not have known it existed. When driving up, I did not see the first sign of the event until I got to Exit 16. Everything downtown was set up for the Jazz Festival and not F1. Maybe ol Tony just didn't want it any more.

Well put. I doubt even Dave Despain could be more eloquent. (And my sentiments, exactly.)

This is a great disappointment.
A purpose build F - 1 track within one of THE historic race tracks of the World is a great concept.
One can only hope, that Tony George's impending announcement for the 16., will be for the Cart & Indy series getting back together (yeah right)?
Two megalomaniacs never get along well. Bernie probably wanted more of everything, including money.
