Canada runs into more trouble

With the Canadian Grand Prix having, apparently, been saved by support from the government, there are now calls from the Toronto and Vancouver Champ Car races to get public money to support their activities.

"The same tobacco legislation at the center of the Montreal F1 problems also affects Toronto and Vancouver," Bob Singleton, the general manager of the two races, told the Toronto Sun newspaper.

Singleton said that the two Champ Car races have been seriously hurt by the loss of Player's sponsorship, after the company was forced to abandon all of its motorsports sponsorships, and called for the government to help out.
