The name of St. Petersburg’s grand prix race just got a little longer. It will now be known as the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg presented by RP Funding, after the direct mortgage lender with a primary focus on servicing Florida residents signed on as the event’s first presenting sponsor.
The race will take place from Feb. 25 through Feb. 27 next year, along the waterfront street course in downtown St. Pete.
Three-day tickets go on sale to the public starting Nov. 17 at 10 a.m. Tickets start at $25. For more ticket and event information, visit gpstpete.com.
