Ecclestone admits Olympic stadium grand prix unlikely
6 August, 2012
A company called Intelligent Transport Services recently launched a bid to take over the Olympic venue and use it for a Formula One race once the Games have ended.
But on a visit to Olympic Park at the weekend, Ecclestone said he actually favours rival plans to stage a London street race that would see the cars drive past some of the city’s most famous landmarks.
When asked about the Olympic stadium plans, Ecclestone said: “I would rather have a race where we originally planned[to race in] central London.
“It is a project we are going to try and make happen,” he is quoted by the Times newspaper.
