BMW Oracle Americas Cup. Will it be in San Francisco?
San Francisco leaders could have another reason to celebrate this New Years Eve as the BMW Oracle Americas Cup location will be announced that day.
San Francisco has put its best offer on the table and now all we have to do is wait! The race has never been held in San Francisco, but was held in San Diego on 3 occasions. Reportedly, there are a few other locations that San Francisco is in competition with.
The vision of the BMW/Oracle logoed sails under the Golden Gate Bridge vying with other world contenders for the Cup would be a beautiful sight to behold.
It’s our turn! Keep fingers crossed.
Update: Mmmm…we will be wondering exactly what occurred for BMW to cease it’s eight year sponsorship with Oracle for the America’s Cup. Surely there will be speculation, as there usually is gossip surrounding almost everything that involves Mr. Ellison.
It was a partnership of champions that raced to victory in Valencia, Spain. BMW engineers played a great part in that victory. Perhaps their goal was reached, and it is time to move on to the challenge of another sport? Time will tell…
