If Tilke designs it where will he put his 200 metre run off area's? He'll prob have the grandstands over the river on Manhatten island keeping his culture of having the paying spectators as far away as possible from the track. Like the idea of a street circuit there though I must admit!

Bernies become bored with the Middle East then- looks like he's jumping into bed with the Yanks.
One race in the US is fine, but two??

Lets hope it's designed well- im not holding my breath.

i might suffocate!

So, is this an extra race or do we lose another race? Let's get rid of Valencia, please. Should the European GP not move around Europe, rather be stuck to one (crap) circuit? It would be a great way to discover other European circuits.

Would be great to have a GP somewhere in scandinavia, f1 has had so many great (mostly finnish) scandinavian drivers, the sport really lives up there, yet there is no GP. I also don't understand why one guy gets to design all the modern circuits?

Why oh why is Bernie hell-bent on putting F1 races in the US?

We've already been there in the recent past and it didn't work, people didn't turn up to the races even though they were held at a prestigious track with a lot of motor racing history.

Is going to Texas, in the heart of stock car racing country, and NJ, which has no previous history of motor racing, going to make any difference?

Not sure why people think the USGP didnt work. The USGP at Indy brought in between 100,000-200,000 raceday fans each year, and nearly as many for practice and qualifying. That's considering the fact that, in all honesty, Indianapolis is awful place to visit. And in regards to 2 races, people forget the US is as big as the whole of Europe, with ~50% of the population of Europe.

This all about money in Bernie's pocket. The US will never accept F1, they already have enough NASCAR,Indycar and drag racing to sink a battleship.
Maybe all the Asian race circuits are starting to see through him? I love going to the 'local' races here in the east ( China, Singapore,Malaysia and Japan)but enough is enough......and why,oh why, is Valencia still on the calendar?????....$$$$$$$$ for Mr Bernie, that's why!

Bernie will fit in well amongst the Jersey mobsters and shakedown artists. The track however, if not new pavement, will have to be run on offroad tires and the cars sprung to at least 6" travel.
So here I sit in Florida, halfway between Jersey and Austin, pondering which will be my first USGP in a decade. Another Tilke or Valencia II ?
BTW if Spa is canceled, so goes the series.

Well, somewhere will have to give up it's GP to go racing. Don't know where though, but I thought Valencia had just signed an extension.
On the argument about Tilke, some of his circuits are ok. Sepang is a cracking track, as is Istanbul. Hopefully Bahrain won't happen so they can go back there one last time. The new Buddh circuit looks like being a great circuit to drive, going by driving it on my xbox. A brilliant mixture of high speed turns, with only the first third of the track lacking, Spectating might be different though, as even the Valencia circuit is fun to drive!
