    IRL looking to rope in San Antonio

    The Indy Racing League is considering expanding its street racing calendar to include San Antonio.

    IRL president Tony George met with city officials on Thursday to discuss the possibility of staging a street race in 2007.<O</O

    "We had a great meeting about some exciting possibilities for San Antonio," George tells the San Antonio Express-News.

    "We think that the people who have sort of been putting the thought behind this event here have done a very good job and created at least a very interesting scenario that we believe could work."

    HollyHills Development, one of the prime investors hoping to lure a street race back to San Antonio, would be responsible for putting up the sanctioning fee for the race. The development firm is headed by former CART boss Joe Heitzler.


    A proposed circuit layout would likely include the Alamodome as the central point.
    City officials have given investors two months to work out the details before putting a final proposal on the table.

    San Antonio was scheduled to be part of the inaugural A1 Grand Prix championship, an alternative international open wheel series funded by the Maktoum family of Dubai, before being dropped from the calendar.
