It is Grand Prix time

Every year in the spring downtown gets transformed into a racing paradise. The Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg is a Verizon IndyCar Series race held in St. Petersburg, Florida. The race has been the season opener since 2009, with the exception of 2010, when it was the second race of the season (but the first on U.S. soil). This year’s date is 10 March through 12 March.
The race takes place on a temporary course, utilizing downtown streets, and two runways of Albert Whitted Airport.
Owners of downtown apartments are hosting Grand Prix parties to watch the spectacle right from their balconies. Restaurants are brimming with excitement and the sexy noise of race cars fills the air for many miles during this highly sought after event.
Drivers – start your engines. See you downtown!
