Miami Grand Prix Returns to Miami in 2015 (view race course map)
It hasn’t been since 2003 that Formula 1 racing was part of an annual event in Miami. It was called the Miami Grand Prix. Remember that? People would crowd up the metromover in downtown to get free vantage points of the sports cars whisking by. The atmosphere was electric. (remember that word) But then the Homestead Speedway was built and so went the excitement of race cars in Downtown Miami. Yesterday at a ceremony at the Perez Art Museum, Mayor Tomas Ragalado announced that Sports Car Racing will return to the streets of Downtown Miami. This time not Formula 1 but Formula E. The newly electric race car circuit being promoted by Fia Formula e Racing, will once again bring car racing to the streets of Miami. This time the Miami ePrix. Mark your calendars for March 14 2015.
