Former Baltimore Grand Prix Organizer Dissolving Without Repaying Investors
Published February 29, 2012
SCHEDULING CONFLICT: In Baltimore, Jack Lambert reports the Baltimore Grand Prix, "approved by the city for the next five years, can only claim its usual Labor Day weekend date in 2015 if it pays up." The American Legion Convention is "scheduled to come to town that weekend." Visit Baltimore President & CEO Tom Noonan said that if the convention "were to move its date, the partners behind Downforce Racing, the race’s new organizers, would have to pay the American Legion for the change." He said that rescheduling the convention would "have to be done at least two years in advance." Noonan added that there are "no conversations with American Legion representatives about moving the convention at this time." The two events "couldn't coexist because they're both in the heart of downtown" (BALTIMORE BUSINESS JOURNAL, 2/24 issue).
