The Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg will take place on a picturesque fourteen-turn 1.8 mile temporary course framed by the city's waterways and incorporating the runways of Albert Whitted Municipal Airport. Drivers are enthusiastic about the passing opportunities and the potential for quality racing on the St. Petersburg track:

"I think the combination of street and airport is going to make for a fabulous course. There are a number of places for passing, which all the drivers will like. I think it's a terrific setting, it's exciting and I'm looking forward to it." - Dario Franchitti

The race, which will be the third of 17 events on the 2005 IndyCar® Series schedule, will mark the first-ever IndyCar Series race run on a non-oval track.

The race is owned and promoted by Andretti Green Promotions, LLC. Led by Barry Green, who will serve as the managing director of the event, Andretti Green Promotions, LLC is focused on continuing the steady growth and increasing popularity of the IndyCar Series as it makes its debut into street racing.

"Andretti Green Promotions is thrilled with the opportunity that lies ahead in St. Petersburg. It's a terrific venue and has all the elements necessary to create a successful event for the city, the fans, the competitors, a national television audience and the Indy Racing League." - Barry Green

This first-ever IndyCar Series street race promises to be an exciting and memorable event. Get your tickets today!

Editor's Note: Also of potential interest to TOV readers is that the World Challenge Touring Car Racing Series will be making its second stop of the season at this venue on Sunday as well. Realtime Racing's Peter Cunningham won the season opener driving an Acura TSX and Pierre Kleinubing (also in a TSX) may have had a spot on the podium as well if not for a MAP sensor failure. The Temple of VTEC will be in St. Petersburg this weekend covering both races. We will provide updates as soon as we can get online.
