I predicted that this would never happen and now it looks like I'm right. Crap.

I think Montreal is safe...for now at least, until the little prick wants more money.

Why the animosity?

It should be everyone's best interest to combine the greatest racing sport on the planet with the greatest country on the planet...





















Texas.

Can we whoop Brad if the various GP's don't happen?

Honestly, I have a very short list of Bucket List things that haven't been accomplished (because I have been a lucky bastard that has seen a ton of stuff already) but a US Grand Prix is on that list.

I wanted to see a GP in Austin. And now I am starting to get really, really pissed.

Hopefully we can still get MotoGP, I'd be super excited about that.

That would be great, but they need F1 to justify the cost of building it. Just not the same crowd unfortunately. Although, I would think a sports car club facility would have some passion in TX. There is going to have to be something with a huge draw to justify it. IndyCar would come, but at this point in time that will not help much with the finances.

They will work it out, I have faith. If not, I hope the Mayan's are right!
