"Brazil has a real history in Indy car racing and we would like to re-establish a championship race there as early as 2015," said Mark Miles, CEO of Hulman & Co., the parent of INDYCAR. "We are engaged in on-going discussions toward this goal and hope suitable arrangements can be finalized soon.

"There is still a lot of work to be done, but we are encouraged by the efforts from The Government of the Federal District - GDF and the Governor of Brasilia Agnelo Queiroz, as well as the TV Bandeirantes Group."
