F1 » Are Long Beach ‘talks’ a shot across New Jersey bows?


Despite reports of talks, it would appear that Long Beach is unlikely to fall back into Bernie Ecclestone's hands... or that he intends it to.

Considering the dire economic environment of California I would be amazed if Bernie were able to do a deal with Long Beech. Would he be doing it for free? No, he always wants more than a pound of flesh which no place in California would be willing to do.

F1 is in Texas because the Texas economy has been booming and continues to boom... they can waste F1 money that other states can't.

To paraphrase that old quote, "Rumors of California's demise are vastly overstated". California is doing fine, thank you, and a return of the F1 circus would be a welcome addition. But I agree that I don't expect it to happen.
Very sad, as the Indy cars don't put on much of a show.

"A shot across New Jersey's bow?" Are you kidding?? If New Jersey was a ship it was the Titanic and it sank long ago. Have you bothered to look at the "pits" and "garages" that are supposedly under construction? The lame photos on the internet (including Sutton Images photos on pitpass.com) show a multi-level parking garage with retail shops at ground level. THERE IS NO CONSTRUCTION!!! The New Jersey deal was a con job from Day 1
