More on San Jose track relocation

The San Jose Mercury News reports – Organizers of this summer's San Jose Grand Prix are scrambling to get city approval for an 11th-hour course change that would send race cars streaking through the heart of downtown rather than along its fringe. Paving work that began last week has been halted on the original route that used the parking lot at HP Pavilion as both its start and finish. A source familiar with the alternative route who did not wish to be named said it would start in front of the Hilton hotel on Almaden Boulevard and skirt Plaza de Cesar Chavez at one point. Dale Jantzen, president of the Canary Fund, the non-profit group that signed a five-year agreement with the city to stage the Champ Car World Series race, said a desire to contain costs and "maximize exposure for the city of San Jose" was behind the proposed changes.
