Verizon INDYCAR Series

No IndyCar Race in Mexico for 2018

By  | 

After much discussion, INDYCAR confirmed on Friday that there will be no Verizon IndyCar Series event in Mexico City in 2018.

“INDYCAR is invested in the process of putting together the right deal with a partner we are certain can deliver this race,” said Mark Miles, CEO of Hulman & Company, the parent of INDYCAR and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “We are not at the point where we can finalize a contract for the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season and felt that we couldn’t delay the decision any longer, in fairness to our teams, manufacturers and other stakeholders who need time to properly prepare for an event of such magnitude. INDYCAR appreciates the rich racing history in Mexico and we would like to be part of that once again. We will keep working with the intent of making an INDYCAR event in Mexico City a reality in the future.”

The series stated that they will not abandon the idea entirely, with hopes to host an event at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez road course in 2019.
