WWW.INDYSTAR.COM THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13, 2001 C3 AUTO RACING Sports Last Grand Prix for Detroit? Sunday's race will be the event's 20th edition and the last under the current contract. From Wire Services Negotiations to keep the Detroit Grand Prix alive beyond this weekend are not promising. The race Sunday on Belle Isle will be the event's 20th edition, and last under a contract between Troy-based Championship Auto Racing Teams and race promoter International Management Group. IMG and CART officials say talks are ongoing, but the event's future looks bleak. - ' This could very well be the last CART race," Graham Hearns. IMG vice president for operations and business affairs, told The Detroit News. "We hope not. We're doing everything we can to try to make sure that does not happen. I don't say that to sell tickets. That's the unfortunate truth right now." Joe Heitzler, CARTs new president and chief executive, said his company is considering several new markets and needs to make room on the schedule. He said he expects a decision on Detroit as soon as within a week after the race. "Our No. 1 objective is to enhance the shareholder value of this company because we are publicly ,1 ML Joe Heitzler, CART'S new president and CEO, expects a decision on Detroit within a week after the race. traded," Heitzler said. "All of the decisions I make have that in focus." Hearns said it is unlikely the race would move to the downtown streets, its location before 1992. A move to a course at the Michigan State Fairgrounds also is unlikely because of time constraints for building a course. Speeds reduced in tests Engine and aerodynamic changes designed to slow down Champ cars on superspeedways worked to perfection Tuesday during a test at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Mich. Gil de Ferran, the defending CART series champion, was the fastest of five drivers who took part in the 5-hour session, turning a top lap of 224.278 mph in his Marlboro Team Penske Reynard-Honda. None of the other drivers Christian Fittipaldl. Darlo Franchitti, Max Papis and Bryan Herta had laps averaging above 222 and trap speeds on the front straightaway were generally in the 222 range. All three series engine manufacturers Ford, Honda and Toyota as well as both chassis manufacturers Lola and Reynard were represented In the test. Earnhardt's widow testifies Dale Earnhardt's widow testified Tuesday in Daytona Beach, Fla that she has tried to stop the public release of her husband's autopsy photos to spare her family "painful emotional distress." "The photographs are humiliating, disgusting and negative," Teresa Earnhardt said. "That could be nothing but harmful and painful to anyone involved with my family, my company, our fans, anyone." A hearing into whether the photos can be made public was expected to continue today. A college newspaper, The Independent Florida Alligator, and a Deland-based Web site are seeking access to the autopsy photos. Appearing slightly irritated under questioning from opposing lawyers, Earnhardt said she filed a lawsuit blocking the release of the photos to spare her family from "humiliation and harm." Earnhardt denied that NASCAR played a role in her decision. Under questioning, she also said she didn't think the photos would show anything that' could prevent driver deaths. .
