this seemed to be a odd race from the start. Qingdao those not have a racing track and it's not among the best cities in China to hold a street race due to many different factors. I wonder who advice Indy to chose Qingdao! There are many great permanent tracks in China besides Shanghai Zhuhai has a great track with hosts WEC (LMS) and many other great events. Beijing two very good tracks so does many other cities which have a racing pedigree in them. I just holding a race in Zhuhai near to the time the Macau GP is held. The cities are side by side and other many other factors would make this race a great race!

They can leave the stands from the Nationwide even up a week or two longer and have it on the same date in Montreal at Circuit Gilles Villeneve.

Who do I call with this idea?

Go to India mate ... It's very easy to host it in no time at all through the help of American Diplomacy & possibly involving Chevrolet India for Hosting the event.

Rockingham Uk would be really good but I reckon they'll want somewhere with more predictable weather if they go for another oval.

Was watching the NASCAR race from Pocono on Monday night, that look's a real cool track and it's tradditional Indy car circuit.

Maybe they should go for that street circuit in Mexico they used to use.

I would love to see Burke lakefront airport in Cleveland on the schedule again. Always a cracking race when CART were there and the unpredictable weather adds to the excitement and challenge. In all the years CART were there I dont remember a boring race.
