NOTES OF INTEREST

Grand Prix Americas weekend will mark the return of street racing to Miami for the first time since 1995. The city was home to many successful sports car racing events in the 1980s and 1990s, and the international flavor of the American Le Mans Series is a perfect fit for the melting pot of cultures that is Miami. The weekend will also mark the historic first pairing of the ALMS with the CART FedEx Championship Series, as well as a rare motorsports "dual headline" event. The 1.57-mile temporary racing circuit is located in the Downtown section of Miami and includes portions of Biscayne Boulevard, Bayfront Park and adjacent city streets.
