Baltimore Grand Prix Changes Again (But Appears to Be Stabilizing)

Share the News

Famed Indy driver Michael Andretti says his Andretti Sports Marketing will be playing a smaller role in next year’s Grand Prix of Baltimore, after the national sports promotion firm stepped in (working in tandem with local Race On LLC) to save the flailing, and much maligned (at least ’round these parts) street race in 2012.

Andretti will be turning over more organizational responsibilities to Race On, the third startup company to helm the yearly event — sorting out messes left by Baltimore Racing Development and Downforce Racing.

While it certainly seems as if the Grand Prix finally has some competent stewardship, it remains to be seen whether the 2013 race will recover from the dip in attendance suffered last year, and whether it will deliver on promises of economic impact made in 2011.
