Representative for potential new sponsor and new race site will take a first-hand look at the San Diego races
There are some VIPS that will attending the San Diego races this year.
A potential big-name investor and sponsor is taking a look first-hand at the way a race weekend evolves. This sponsor, a national luxury car manufacturer, would potentially tie in directly as a name sponsor for a new race site.
A committee representing the potential race site will also be there to take a look. The word is that it's a group from another major West Coast city that - pending sponsorship committments - could be up and running as early as 2008.
However, the new race site might not be affiliated with ABRA and might instead look to be sanctioned through APBA. The new site would include an invittation to the unlimiteds for 2008.
The same group of investors may also be interested in bringing race sites to other markets as well.
