IndyCar heads to Brasília in 2015

1957960_10151983345580848_2043962685_nIndyCar has confirmed that it is exploring a return to Brazil and is in discussions with event organisers in Brasília regarding a Verizon IndyCar Series race in 2015.

The race will held at the Autodromo Nelson Piquet, which has a 12-turn, 3.4-mile counter-clockwise layout for most of the races. The governor of the Federal District, Agnelo Queiroz, said the government will ensure all needed improvements are made at the track ahead of the race, which he said would be take place on 8 March.

“Brazil has a real history in Indy car racing and we would like to re-establish a championship race there as early as 2015,” said Mark Miles, CEO of Hulman & Co., the parent of IndyCar. “We are engaged in on-going discussions toward this goal and hope suitable arrangements can be finalised soon.”

IndyCar sanctioned a Verizon IndyCar Series street race in São Paulo from 2010 through 2013, but local promoters weren’t able to secure the event in 2014 because of financial problems. The CART series was in Brazil from 1996-2000 with a race on an oval track in Rio de Janeiro. The race in Sao Paulo was held on a street course.

The Autodromo Nelson Piquet is also expected to host a MotoGP race in 2015.

Confederations Cup 2013 – Host Cities Chosen

FIFA has announced that the host cities for the 2013 Confederations Cup will be Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Fortaleza, Recife, Rio de Janeiro and Salvador. All will be testing stadiums to be used in the 2014 World Cup.

The tournament, which will take place from 15 to 30 June 2013, will feature eight teams including Brazil as the host; Spain as reigning World Champions; Uruguay as the champions of South America; Mexico as champions of CONCACAF; Japan as the Asian champions; and they will be joined by the European, African and Oceania champions.

The eight teams will be split in to two groups with the top two in each group going forward to the semi-finals.

Fan Fest locations confirmed for 2014 World Cup

The twelve host cities for the 2014 FIFA World Cup will offer fans the chance to watch games in special locations known as FIFA Fan Fest.

“The FIFA Fan Fest symbolises the most exciting part of football and the FIFA World Cup: thousands of fans gathered to watch a match together and celebrate,” says ex-Brazilian legend Ronaldo, who is also a member of the Local Organising Committee Management Board. “The FIFA Fan Fest brings together people from all social backgrounds. As Brazilians, we have always had the custom of cheering for our national team in large popular festivals all over the country, therefore I’m sure that this will be the best FIFA Fan Fest of all time.”

Thierry Weil, FIFA’s Marketing Director, echoed Ronaldo’s words, saying “The FIFA Fan Fest provides FIFA and the LOC with a platform to strengthen the fan experience of the World Cup, taking the event to millions of fans outside of the stadiums.”

The FIFA Fan Fest first became part of the official World Cup programme in Germany in 2006, following the huge success of unofficial public viewing events in Korea during the 2002 cup. The success of the FIFA Fan Fest programme in Germany led to the concept being developed further for the 2010 World Cup, when not only the South African Host Cities but also six international venues hosted an event which welcomed over six million football fans over 31 days.

The locations of the FIFA Fan Fest in the twelve 2014 Host Cities are:

  1. Belo Horizonte – Praca da Estacaoo;
  2. Brasília – Esplanada dos Ministerios;
  3. Cuiaba – Parque de Exposicoes;
  4. Curitiba – Parque Barigui;
  5. Fortaleza – Praia de Iracema (Aterrao);
  6. Manaus – Memorial Encontro das Aguas;
  7. Natal – Praia do Forte;
  8. Porto Alegre – Praça Glenio Perez;
  9. Recife – Marco Zero;
  10. Rio de Janeiro – Praia de Copacabana;
  11. Salvador – Jardim de Alah;
  12. Sao Paulo – Vale do Anhagabau;
