Max Mosley was in the United States earlier this week to meet with automotive engineers and US racing industry politicians at the SAE Motorsports Engineering Conference. Mosley said that motorsport is facing similar problems on both sides of the Atlantic, with costs rising.

"We are all facing similar problems," said Mosley. "For 1,000 people to work to put two cars on the grid is completely insane; it's the ultimate folly. By 2008, we hope to cut costs dramatically."

In the course of the event Mosley met NASCAR president Mike Helton, Steve Johnson, president and chief executive officer of the Sports Car Club of America, Indy Racing League president Tony George and Tom Compton, president of the National Hot Rod Association.
