Cincinnati Grand Prix ?

The Fishwrap reports that an attempt at bringing grand prix racing to Cincinnati was all a scam.
Too bad.
While the idea of racing cars through downtown is kinda crazy, other streets, like River Road, Madison Road, Columbia and Victory Parkways might be pretty cool. I am not a racing fan nowadays, I know nothing of the business ($$$), politics & stuff. All I know is the movie Grand Prix with James Garner (my grandma took me). But from the standpoint of promoting the city, images of a race along the river, on the parkways & on the Ohio River bridges could be pretty great.
That being said, I have to wonder at what point does the city decide to do background checks on these promo guys?

I want a Cinerama monitor
