The city of Boston has slammed the door firmly in the face of the Verizon IndyCar Series with the news last night that the inaugural Grand Prix of Boston which was set to take place over the Labor Day weekend has been cancelled.
Speaking to the Boston Globe, race organiser John Casey commented by saying:
The relationship between us and the city is not working, The relationship is untenable.
In a statement issued last night, the Verizon IndyCar Series refused to commented on the situation just confirming that the race had been cancelled.
Not only has Boston let the Verizon IndyCar Series down but also the countless fans of the sport who were planning to attend the race. Casey has confirmed that he is working on a plan B and is hopeful that an event can be held in a neighbouring city and suggested that there could be a back up city in New England where the race could be held.
