Gene Hallman, head of the Bruno Event Team, which promotes and manages races at Barber Motorsports Park, gave an interview to the Birmingham News yesterday. In the interview Hallman mentioned that there may be a major motorcycle race at the facility in 2008.
It's been a somewhat widely-known secret that Barber is in talks with the Flamminis regarding a World Superbike event and that there have been informal internal discussions about lengthening the track.
Hallman said in the interview: "We're looking at a significant international motorcycle event for the facility in 2008. We are in the beginning stages of those discussions."
Barber was once to be the home of the USGP.
