ALMS eyes Washington race

Organisers of the American Le Mans Series are planning to stage a race around the streets of Washington DC next year following recent talks with city officials

ALMS eyes Washington race

The race would take place on a temporary circuit on the streets of the US capital and organisers were given the initial go ahead to stage a motor racing event in June last year.

"We have a very strong interest in holding a race in Washington," said series founder Don Panoz. "The strong international flavour of our series would be a very good fit in our nation's capital, and our racing teams have already demonstrated their outstanding abilities on every type of circuit."

The Washington event is expected to make up part of a festival around the city, in the vein of the series' finale in Adelaide last year on New Year's Eve.

A Washington race would be the championship's second round on a street circuit after Adelaide, although the Australian round is expected to move this year from the South Australia track to Sydney, after funding was withdrawn by the state's government.
