We are bumping this rumor up to 'strong.' Robin Miller is reporting in this SPEED TV article
that Vancouver won't happen either. He is also reporting that the Laguna Seca and Road America races are dead as well. Road America was a given, but we were under the impression Laguna Seca thought they were keeping their date. We can never figure out why given the poor attendance the last three years. He's reporting a race in Seoul, whereas we hear Ansan, a suburb of Seoul instead. He makes no mention of China, Brazil, and the Middle East, all of which have been rumored. 10/27/04
Late word is that the Champ Car race in Vancouver may not happen after all in 2005. 2005 was thought to be the last year for the event, but with so many new rumored venues coming aboard there simply is no room on the 2005 schedule and something had to give. Since Vancouver's future was doomed anyway, perhaps it was decided to seal their fate earlier. Just a rumor right now, but our sources are good.
