There were some plans for an American GP2 last year, but never heard of it again. I think that would be great:
- GP2 America could be more attractive for F1 and United Sports car Championship than Indy Lights is now (only for IndyCar). The cars are not as fast as GP2 cars and for many European drivers going to Indy Lights is a step back, GP2 America would not be a step back
- GP2 America would also help IndyCar to become more popular as it could become the first option if F1 doesn't function.
- I think there would be interest in such series as Carlin is considering Indy Lights for 2015 and if the cars are the same as in Gp2 Main Series many teams could also compete there. America is a popular market for teams, sponsors and so on.
- GP2 America must be a support series for F1 races (now Austin and Montréal, perhaps also Interlagos, Mexico and New Jersey), IndyCar (Indianapolis, Long Beach and Texas) and United Sportscar Championship (Daytona, Sebring and Road Atlanta).
- The problem: In America Formula Racing is not very popular any more, as NASCAR is dominating. So will there be money for such series? Perhaps we need more than one chassis and engine supplier and a budget cap as in LMP2 class.
