“ the Formula - 1 “ in Indianapolis
President Formula One Administraion (FOA) and the actual owner “ Formulas - 1 “ Berni Ecclestone has confirmed that since 2000 one of World championship stages “ Formulas - 1 “ will be it is spent on a legendary American line in Indianapolis. It will be the first race “ Formulas - 1 “ in the USA since 1991.
Idea to return “ the Formula - 1 “ In the USA was born at Ecclestone right after how in 1991 the American stage of the championship has been excellent. Though to this city of America invariably received gran - at since 1959. It was sometimes spent even on two stages, and in 1982 - m and at all three. But then interest of the American fans and advertisers to “ to the Formula - 1 “ has sharply fallen, and to spend race it became unprofitable.
since that moment Ecclestone unsuccessfully tried to make the way again on the market of the USA, but, as it is known, local fans are assured that good including races, happens only American. For this reason public preferred series IndyCar, believing what to drink beer and there are hamburgers much more pleasantly under a roar “ the “ cars.
but Ecclestone would not be by itself if has missed such rich market, as the USA. To return, years were necessary for it, but it has made it in magnificent style, having put a lethal blow of the American motor racing, having enticed into a bosom “ Formulas - 1 “ a legendary line in Indianapolis.
the Americans who three years ago have arranged squabbles around IndyCar and as a result disorganised this championship on two independent series - Indy and CART to the aid have come. After that section the most significant line of America in Indianapolis remained for Indy which now it is possible to name the third league of motor racing safely.
such position in any way did not suit owners of the track, got used to receive only the best. Probably, therefore president Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) Tony George with pleasure has accepted the offer of Ekkslstouna to organise on a track a stage “ Formulas - 1 “. Moreover, he even has agreed to pay $10 million for this right. According to George, now the line in Indianapolis for many long years will provide to itself prosperity.
Now the track represents an oval (length of a line of 4 km), and, naturally, is absolutely unsuitable for “ Formulas - 1 “ which racers are able to turn not only on the left. In this connection by 2000 it is supposed to construct one more line in a present oval. It is planned that its length will make 4,07 km and on it there will be 13 turns. Approximate cost of works - $16 million has agreed to incur Tony George`s These expenses. As to terms of carrying out of Gran - at the USA the stage will go most likely after the Canadian. According to Ecclestone, such order is the optimal as commands should not be wound twice for ocean.
