INDIANAPOLIS – IndyCar officials confirmed today that the sanctioning body is exploring a return to Brazil and is currently in discussions with event organizers in the capital city of Brasília regarding a Verizon IndyCar Series race in 2015.

“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 finalized soon.

“There is still a lot of work to be done, but we are encouraged by the efforts from The Government of the Federal District – GDF and the Governor of Brasilia Agnelo Queiroz, as well as the TV Bandeirantes Group.”

IndyCar sanctioned a Verizon IndyCar Series street race in São Paulo, Brazil, from 2010-13. Will Power won the first three events, with James Hinchcliffe winning the last Verizon IndyCar Series event in Brazil in 2013.

“We look forward to continuing these discussions as IndyCar explores race markets and venues that will further the growth of the Verizon IndyCar Series,” Miles said.
