Branson wants second US GP in Las Vegas
(GMM)  Sir Richard Branson would like to see a United States grand prix held in Las Vegas.

The British billionaire, sponsor of Virgin Racing, said he welcomes the news that an American race has been scheduled for Texas in 2012.

"The US market is extremely important," the Virgin mogul told La Presse newspaper at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

"We have a cell phone company here in Canada, our airline will fly to Toronto soon and we will invest in the Canadian investment community.

"But we must also go to the United States," Branson insisted.  "I think the best places would be San Francisco, or the streets of Las Vegas."

When told that F1 is planning to be in Texas in a couple of years, he answered: "Texas?  Yeah, ok, but I would still go to Vegas.

"Imagine the cars on the Strip," he smiled.
