  • Q&A: IndyCar CEO Miles says series in good shape - Sportsnet.ca
    of North America and Canada is an exciting possibility but a little early to make any announcements SN The difficulty with adjusting the calendar is there are other ramifications There s also been the suggestion of returning to Elkhart Lake or other great venues from the past but there s a lot of pieces that need to line up before you make such a decision MM You know scheduling for any league is complicated and there are a lot of dominoes and everything is interconnected If you change this it s going to affect three or four other things so it isn t easy People seem to think that if somebody wants a race you just add a race and it s just not that easy Our objective as I said is getting to 20 races We ll have 16 in 2015 as part of the championship We clearly want to add a new event on the Labour Day weekend as the finale And that leaves you with three basically in that February early March opportunity So really the possibility of adding new events in new markets other than that February early March period pretty much relates to whether there are existing races that we might trade out And that isn t really our philosophy It s not to say it couldn t happen but we will look at being in the best markets with the most vibrant races but we wouldn t do that arbitrarily SN Another example of the difficulty of scheduling is the Toronto race having to be moved forward a month due to outside influences namely the Pan Am Games Everyone in the series had to adjust to keep that event on the schedule MM That was difficult and it speaks volumes about how the IndyCar Nation so to speak the paddock and we feel about the race in Canada in Toronto A lot of things had to move and we got questions today about do we really value date equity if we re willing to move things around as we did And the answer in principal is yes we want date equity but we also value our great promoters and our great events We made the necessary changes and expect things will probably revert to form after 2015 SN Recently there were stories speculating on the health of IndyCar and IndyCar s financial stability Can you address that speculation MM My shorter answer to that question or that assertion is rubbish Wherever it came from it came from people that don t know our economics we re in really good shape We ve had consecutive good years we re growing We signed Verizon Angie s List and other major sponsors in 2014 that are ongoing and we ll be announcing three new sponsors in the next at least month that are signed and just a matter of the timing of introducing them publicly As has been discussed already today there s a bit of a
