Grand Prix of St. Pete reveals event plans  The Red Bull Air Show, the return of "drifting" demonstrations and an appearance by the Budweiser Clydesdales highlight the entertainment program announced Tuesday for the March 25-27 Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.

Although there are no concerts this year, the Indy Racing League will debut the IZOD IndyCar Village, an area between turns 4 and 5, where fans can interact with drivers and teams and test their skills in racing simulators.

The Acura Yacht Club returns after a one-year hiatus, and as in 2009, will have a floating bar with big-screen TVs that is open to the public. There's also the new "Trackside Club," a temporary two-story structure that will house corporate hospitality for the first time.

In addition to the air show, which will have stunt planes, a stunt helicopter and a jump team, commandos from U.S. Southern Command at MacDill Air Force Base will provide a skydiving exhibition on race day.

General manager Tim Ramsberger said ticket sales are on pace with last year and suites are nearly sold out.
