Liberty still chasing second US Grand Prix

Date published: November 15 2018

Liberty Media are not giving up on plans for a second United States grand prix despite Miami falling through.

Earlier this year all the talk regarded calendar expansation was around Miami joining the calendar.

The plan was to hold a grand prix on the streets of the city from 2020 onward with Liberty even revealing a layout for the track.

Those plans, though, fell apart when local authorities baulked at the idea.

Liberty, however, are still keen on a second US race, it just may not be in Miami.

F1 boss Chase Carey told Speed Week: “The plan is to have a second race in the US. But we are not just dealing with Miami, even if we are convinced that it would be a great project.

“The negotiations are going on. When it comes to street circuits there are many interests that need to come together and it takes time.

“The fan festival [held before the Austin GP] helped, everyone thought the event was great. It was a positive step towards the race.”
