Re: Canadian Grand Prix is No More

All because of advertising??! The revenue from ticket/t-shirt/food/memorabilia sales must not be enough

Still sittin' on the fence. We're taking a vacation Labor Day week and that may drain the finances too much.

Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

I don't think its a revenue issue. *I think Canada has passed some sort of legislation banning ANY affiliation whatsoever with tobacco and motorsports - at least in some of the European countries they can block out the sponsor names... I think the Canadian law takes it farther and says no sponsorship allowed at all. *I'm not real sure of the ruling... maybe some of our Canadian brethren know more about it than I do

I haven't decided if I am going yet either.....may do a track day instead. Either way, I am not going to buy a ticket until the last minute....lots of deals to be had the day before and day of the race.....
