NO VROOM THIS YEAR
no go
The Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, which debuted here last year, has turned out to be a one-and-done event--for now. Thanks to the collapse of CART and subsequent local legal disputes, the St. Pete race has been dropped from this year's schedule. Fingers are crossed that everything can be resolved in time for a stab at a race next year, or even in 2006.

I've still got my tickets to the inaugural opening day of the 2003 race. I wonder if they'll eventually be worth something in the collector's market.
