Leyton Orient Enters Race To Occupy Olympic Stadium After Games
Published July 18, 2012
F1 TRACK CONSIDERED: The PA reported that Intelligent Transport Solutions Ltd., who are based at Wanstead in East London, have already "held preliminary talks" with Ecclestone in regard to using the stadium as an F1 circuit. Any potential race would form a second British round of the world championship to run alongside the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Ecclestone has "tentatively given his blessing," stating a month ago ITS Ltd. are a firm "bidding for use of the stadium, not to own it." Ecclestone added: "They came up with a scheme whereby Formula One would race around the stadium, inside it, outside it. They wanted to make sure I would be interested" (PA, 7/17).
