Olympic City Lands Grand Prix 9/27/13
PARIS - The Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi (SOH'-chee), the site of next year's Winter Olympics, is set to host its first Formula One grand prix next year. The governing body of motorsports has published a provisional calendar for 2014 and it includes a record 22 races. New Jersey and Mexico have been included as provisional venues. If approved, New Jersey would be on June 1 and Mexico the penultimate race on Nov. 16.
The previous record number of races is 20, with 19 this year. Teams are expressing reluctance about the demands so many races would entail.
