Farida Shourbaji: Lucky Jupiter shines its light on the Grand Prix in early 2013 -- and it's a green light, so gun it. This could be the year the Grand Prix finally makes a profit, which is good because I don't want to be trapped in traffic for hours again unless this thing is Baltimore's billion dollar baby. Lexie Mountain: Whose house? Baltimore's house. The Baltimore Grand Prix will be successful only as long as it is hyper aware of the city of Baltimore itself. In a fun twist, we also recommend that Race On LLC pay close attention to spheres of feminine influence in negotiating with local vendors and suppliers. If money is placed in front of long-term goals then the BGP will come up short for next time as well. Talent, patience and energy comprise the turtle that will pull out ahead to clinch the race in 2013 and beyond. Angela Devoti: The third annual Baltimore Grand Prix gets last-minute funding from a secret Super-PAC, but will meet surprise resistance on race day from a group of environmental protesters dressed as trees, forming human chains across race routes. The race will be occupied, the revolution will be televised , and the authorities will be peeved. Few will ever bring up Baltimore's Grand Prix ever again without mentioning this incident.
