Clean, Green…And Indy Racing?
If Jay Davidson, chief operating officer of Baltimore Racing Development LLC, has his way, cars will soon be racing around the Inner Harbor. According to a recent article in the Daily Record, plans to bring the first grand prix-style race to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor are revving up and incoming mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is “very excited about the prospect”.
Does burning rubber and large amounts of fossils fuels next to our already troubled Inner Harbor sound like a Cleaner Greener Baltimore to you? According to Rawlings-Blake Roll Call Issue #130, “As currently proposed, the race would take drivers on a course through the streets around the Convention Center and stadium areas. Organizers say the event will not be branded as a race, but rather a ‘three-day festival of speed that’s family-affordable,’ featuring concerts.”
If approved, the Baltimore Grand Prix would likely take place in the summer of 2011.
