Grand Prix secured for 2010

A PEACE deal between Formula One and racing teams has secured the Melbourne Grand Prix for next year.

After leading race teams — including BMW and Ferrari — were told last month that they were not entered for races next year as part of a legal dispute, the State Government said it would not pay for ‘‘half a grand prix’’.

Tourism Minister Tim Holding said the State Government did not want to host a race without the big teams. He said the agreement ensured that Melbourne would continue to host the Grand Prix.

Last year’s race cost taxpayers more than $40 million. An increase in ‘‘event staging fees’’ sent the bill soaring from $21 million in 2006.
