Austin GP Organisers prepared to talk about a possible race rescheduling if problems about its 2012 deal cannot be resolved in time, with increasing qualms that F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone is set to scrap the event at the upcoming World Motor Sport Council meeting in New Delhi.
The news comes after Bernie Ecclestone reportedly confirmed that the race will 100% be detached from 2012 calendar, stemming from on-going contractual difficulty and the fact that construction work has been halted at the venue. But, Austin GP circuit President Steve Sexton is expecting that topic can be resolved over the coming months, admitting that a postponement until 2013 is a likely compromise.
“We have been excited for and working towards a 2012 USGP race and now understand that Mr. Ecclestone is interested in moving the Austin race to 2013,” explained Steve Sexton, President of Circuit of The Americas.
“We know the U.S. market is important to the teams and their sponsors and 2013 certainly allows time for the Circuit of The Americas to be ready.”
