Indycar warns F1 over trademark breaches

The owner of the US-based Indycar series has hit out at Formula 1 for repeated alleged trademark breaches. Following that, Indycar and Indianapolis Motor Speedway owner Mark Miles wrote a letter of informal complaint to F1, the Indianapolis Star newspaper reveals. “They said, ‘We don’t mean to be doing that to you’,” Miles confirmed. A 1985 filing protects Indycar’s ownership of the phrase “the greatest spectacle in racing”. “I heard that,” Miles said when asked about LL Cool J’s use of the term. Miles insisted that he doesn’t believe F1’s use of the disputed term would have come from “as high up as Stefano Domenicali”.
