F1 CEO Ecclestone Potentially Looking Into Buying Long Beach Grand Prix
Published April 18, 2013
TAKING A LOOK: SPEEDTV.com's Robin Miller reported "at least one group is taking a serious look at making a bid for the longest-running, most successful street race in North America." Every sign "points to" Green-Savoree Racing Promotions co-Owners Kim Green and Kevin Savoree "trying to raise their already robust profile in promoting and track ownership." It also has been "rumored that [ISC Chair] Jim France and the newly formed United SportsCar Racing Championship could be a potential buyer." Gordon Kirby in his latest Motor Sport magazine blog "speculates" that Ecclestone and former CART President & CEO Chris Pook are "interested in re-acquiring the venue that hosted Formula One from 1976-1983" (SPEEDTV.com, 4/15).
