Mexican researcher Alfonso Salazar reports that on Sunday, November 12, 2006 at 13:30 hours, several people located on the ninth row of the grandstand of the Hermanos Rodriguez Speedway reported the transit of an amorphous, red-colored flying object traveling in a west-to-east direction over Mexico City at some 3000 meters, separated by half a kilometer, approximately, from the Bell 206 helicopter that was engaging in aerial photography at the time, according to witness reports.

The sighting took place during the pace lap performed by the racecar drivers shortly before the race began.

This is the second time that a UFO report has taken place duirng the Mexico Grand Prix. The first was in 2003, when several people reported the manifestation of a metallic sphere suspended at a height over the city, also at the start of the race. At the time, it ws a Brazilian news crew who noticed the event and their report appeared on a news website in that country, with information supplied by journalist Sandro Borges.

The current report concerning the alleged UFO over the Hermanos Rodriguez Speedway will be discussed by researcher Alfonso Salazar during the "Alta Velocidad" racing program hosted by senior race-car commentator Rodolfo Sanchez Noya on ABC Radio.
