Green Savoree Racing Promotions, through its wholly owned subsidiary Green Savoree Mid-Ohio, LLC, is proud to have purchased Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and The Mid-Ohio School on March 2. We are honored and privileged to carry on the tradition of the Trueman family in offering a top-notch experience for race fans and school participants. With 2011 marking the 50th Season of Racing in the track's venerable history, and the 19th year for the School, we felt it was important to assure you that we plan on continuing that excellence.
Though we formed Green Savoree Racing Promotions just two years ago, we have worked together since 1993, and have won four IndyCar championships, three Indy 500s and the 12 Hours of Sebring as team principals. In 2004, we helped establish the Indy Racing League's first street race, in St. Petersburg, Florida. Currently, our team promotes the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg (March 27) and the Honda Indy Toronto (July 10) on the IZOD IndyCar Series schedule. In the future, we hope to offer a package that allows fans the unique opportunity to attend each of our three Honda-supported IndyCar events.
There's no time like the present and no more perfect of an opportunity to join the fold than on the cusp of the track's 50th Season of Racing. The 2011 Mid-Ohio schedule is set and will continue as planned. Though it begins a bit earlier for our team with the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg right around the corner, we can't wait for the Mid-Ohio season to kick into full gear and be a part of a race weekend at the track known as "Most Competitive in the U.S."
We hope you join us each race weekend. VIP Race Passes are still on sale, offering you the best and most affordable fan experience. Additionally, The Mid-Ohio School's 19th season continues this weekend with a pair of Honda Teen Defensive Driving Programs. Our on-track Acura High Performance Programs begin in April as well as Performance Track Riding for sportbike owners.
A great many of you have inquired as to how you can join our team. The best fans often make the best staff, and we'd love to have you on our side. The first step to doing so is coming to our Job Fair and Community Open House this Saturday. More information regarding this event is available here
With your help, we are eager to write the next chapter in the 50-year history of North America's largest privately held road course. Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you at the track this summer!
