Green Savoree Racing Takes Over Ownership Of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course

Business as usual expected at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course this year
Green Savoree Racing Promotions yesterday “completed a deal with TrueSports Inc., to take over immediate ownership and operation” of the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, which will host the Aug. 7 Honda Indy 200, according to Rob McCurdy of the MANSFIELD NEWS JOURNAL. Terms of the sale were not disclosed. The deal includes the “Lexington road course and The Mid-Ohio School.” GSRP co-owners Kevin Savoree and Kim Green's company already “owns and promotes the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg and the Honda Indy Toronto." They become "just the third owners in the history" of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, and this is their “first time owning a permanent facility.” TrueSports Media & Communications Coordinator Jesse Ghiorzi said that it will be “business as planned” at the track in '11. American Honda Motorsports PR Manager T.E. McHale said that Honda “did not act as a broker between Green Savoree Racing Promotions and TrueSports.” Savoree will be President & COO for the new subsidiary Green Savoree Mid-Ohio LLC. Green will be Chair & CEO of the new entity (MANSFIELD NEWS JOURNAL, 3/3). In Toronto, Norris McDonald reported Green and Savoree also “have made inquiries as to the availability” of another race on the IndyCar Series schedule (THESTAR.com, 3/2).
