Speaking of losing ticket sales. I heard yesterday the US Grand Prix will be back this year in Austin at the Circuit of the Americas. They have lowered Gen Admission ticket prices, food prices and parking prices. (It is about time!!). We went the first year of the race: $1400.00 for tickets, $17.00 for a hamburger (just the burger! Fries were $8.00 extra) $6.00 for a bottle water...... it was pathetic! No, we didn't go back the second year! Now the race coordinators are scrambling trying to sell tickets. That is what happens when you bite the hand that feeds you!!
The price gouging is what happens when there is a bunch of Europeans running the show. I've been to LeMans and Monaco races twice and it's unbelievable the prices charged. A $17.00 hamburger would be a bargain over there. Good thing I was on an expense account.

12 of us used to go to new hampshire every fall- had reserved tickets for ten yrs( in fact that is what got me & dw into camping)camped together-of course partied together. then nascar moved the race back a week in new hampshire, so that chicago had the first race of chase.well one week in the fall in new hampshire is a big difference in temp. Not only that they split the races with kentucky so long story short . 1/2 the racing -same price for us.Now only 4 of the 12 couples still go- we dont anymore.

I definitely like drag racing, especially bracket racing. Don't really care for the F1, LeMans or other "road" course because the view is so restrictive.

How many of y'all camp at the Bristol race? I don't know how many RVs are around the track area during race week but it has to be several thousand. Bristol is a gigantic campout where there just happens to be a race going on. Should be much better for the spring race this year since they moved the date back to mid-April.

Nothing in the world like Bristol. Impossible to explain but you watch the race and feel the race there. You better have good ear protection. Now I gotta go to a night race there.
