Streets of capital could host Irish Grand Prix
IT IS observed that the recent Mexican Grand Prix was run by an organisation called CIE with significant state funding (Irish Independent, October 30).
I wonder if our own similar-named transport entity would be interested in staging an Irish Grand Prix if significant State funding was forthcoming.
Interestingly, Formula One has this
week reached a deal with Vietnam to stage a race on the streets of its capital, Hanoi, from 2020 onwards. Given that our Transport Minister has not given up hope of bringing the Olympics to Ireland at some stage in the future, an Irish Grand Prix on the streets of Dublin would not be half-bad for starters.
