Streets of cap­i­tal could host Ir­ish Grand Prix

Irish Independent - - The Week -

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.
