Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg Officials Respond To News of Unification of Open Wheel Racing in the U. S.

Quote from Kevin Savoree, Managing Director of the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

"The unification of the two major sanctioning bodies in open wheel racing is perhaps the single biggest development in the history of the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg since we announced the formation of the event in 2004. This historic realignment of open wheel racing brings all of the top drivers and teams to St. Petersburg and will make an event that is already an entertaining and integral part of the region's sports calendar, even stronger."

Quote from Tim Ramsberger, Vice President and General Manager, Andretti Green Promotions, owners of the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

"Over the last three years we have seen racing fans come to St. Petersburg and connect with drivers like Danica Patrick, Dan Wheldon, Helio Castroneves and so many other stars of the IndyCar Series. Now, with the addition of even more drivers and teams to the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, we know this will make a more entertaining weekend for the fans and a stronger event for St. Petersburg. We have been fortunate to not only succeed over the last three years, but have made this a destination event for race fans from across the region and the nation, and this announcement will take that to a whole new level."
