LONDON -- A Formula One circuit in and around Olympic Stadium is one of four plans being considered for the future of the London Games' centerpiece.

The London Legacy Development Corporation announced Tuesday that a possible F1 circuit was one of the bids. The others are from newly promoted Premier League soccer club West Ham, fellow east London club Leyton Orient and the UCFB College of Football Business.

LLDC says the four bids "will now be assessed to ensure they are compliant, before being evaluated ahead of negotiations."

The Olympic Stadium is already set to be the new home of British track and field and will host the 2017 world championships.
