People were asking about it yesterday when the 2013 calendar was announced, so I guess it’s relevant.
Apparently, Mar del Plata is still pushing for the race, only that they now want to have it in 2014 (obviously). They said: “we’re working very hard” to get F1 “racing in the city in 2014″.
The people from Mar del Plata are “still in talks”, and asked about why Cristina Fernandez officially announced the race back in May and no one ever heard of it again until now they said: “We must present an offer to the FIA and the complete circuit, things that are not yet”… “all that would be funded by the state but recoverable (which could be sponsors or investors) to start the work that FIA requests to establish Mar del Plata with a street circuit on the coast in one of the dates in the 2014 calendar”
At the same time, radical Councilman Mario Rodriguez elevated a proyect which requests the Executive Department to report the measures and efforts done and to be completed.
So basically… nothing.
