Clean, Green…And Indy Racing?

St. Peterburg, Florida Grand Prix 2006

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.

I would not make any assumptions yet. The development team seems to already be having problems paying their bills. They have one lawsuit pending against them and other possible claims for not paying bills. Our great City leaders better do their homework before we get into bed with these guys. I love my great City of Baltimore. I want to promote business and development but I want to do it in a way that protects our town and people.

Travis – stop spreading lies about this team. Kind of pathetic on your part. We are laughing at you.
