Rumors about the return of the city stage in long beach to the calendar of Formula 1 go to the last few years and now have a pretty solid confirmation in the form of an official document.
As AutoWeek reports, citing a document published at the beginning of October last year, the procurement services office of long beach made a request to host the Grand Prix of long beach and finding a promoter for the organization of races on machines with open wheel (Formula 1 and IndyCar series, a contract which runs until 2018).
The goal that was explained in the document, is to increase the income and economic impact on the city as well as the importance of positive exposure in the media and increase ticket sales.
Last day of submission was October 28, 2016, but the 24th the deadline was extended because of “complex rules governing Formula 1”. A new deadline was scheduled for November 18, and, apparently, have been met. Thus, it can be concluded that the application was indeed filed on carrying out of Grand Prix F1.
Requests are confidential, but it is believed that the Grand Prix Association of long beach has applied for further IndyCar races, and world championship car California for the holding of the Formula 1.
Currently, the consideration of the two applications involved in the evaluation Committee, an independent body of representatives of the city, which will be examined further by choice of the organizer.
Recall that the Formula 1 was held in long beach from 1975 to 1983.
