INDIANAPOLIS (Friday, March 21, 2014) – INDYCAR confirmed today it is exploring a return to Brazil and is currently in discussions with event organizers in the capital city of Brasília regarding a Verizon IndyCar Series race in 2015. “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.” INDYCAR sanctioned a Verizon IndyCar Series street race in São Paulo, Brazil, from 2010-13. “We look forward to continuing these discussions as INDYCAR explores race markets and venues that will further the growth of the Verizon IndyCar Series,” Miles said.
