Breaking News Feb. 2, 5:45 p.m. EST Sources close to Dorna, promoters of the Grand Prix World Championship series, confirmed today that a promoting group is attempting to put together a U.S. Grand Prix at Barber Motorsports Park, near Birmingham, Alabama, in 2002. Although details were not available at post time, the proposed deal is believed to be for between 3 and 6 years. The track already has undergone one pre-homologation inspection by Franco Uncini, but FIM, IRTA, and Dorna officials have not seen the track with final asphalt laid on the road course. The uncertain status of the proposed deal was not enough to keep the would-be promoters from calling certain U.S. riders and discussing their potential wild card status for the event.
