these important folks will make money on land speculation.
The Austin track is on the 2012 F1 schedule. I have no idea how much the tax payees will pay.

We all know that the Texas NASCAR track and the Dallas Cowboys new home cost the tax payers nothing. Right? Sure!

I like it all also. Not a big fan of the short NASCAR tracks.

I used to follow F1 a lot, don't really have the time anymore. Grew up not too far from Watkins Glen, saw a few races there. Like most sports, being there is way better than watching on TV. Not much of an oval track fan but NASCAR does run a few road races, IIRC. Thanks for posting, might try and catch a couple races on TV this year.

This season is kind of boring.... not as good as I expected. Vettel and RedBull are to good for Hamilton and button. Ferrari isn't as good as it should be.
Hope that the new rules will change anything.

It does appear McLaren and Ferrari have made up some ground on Red Bull in terms of being more competitive. But its probably too little to late for this season.

The Hungarian GP was one of the best F-1 races I have seen in a while. End of the season races should more competitive as a result.

Some of us can enjoy all racing disciplines and recognize that each has redeeming features without trying to run someone else's sport into the ground.

But that's just me...
Lol, "best drivers in the world". That's comedy.
