A majoriity of people in central Texas do not realise
yet the positive impact cota will have, a minority of
people who have been fans of f1 and road racing are
eagerly anticipating the road show that is f1.
I saw in storage in Elroy (across the road from the track) the 1976 mclaren that James Hunt won the f1 championship in. As they say in south austin it is "ironical" that
a mclaren will be back in the area.

I think the track looks stunning but I'm looking forward to the race at New Jersey more in 2013. I'm a bit jealous of America getting two races but I think racing around the streets of New Jersey will be fantastic especially since it's the home of Bon Jovi and Bruce Spingstein and it also looks like a great track and great facilities!

COTA has the potential to be really nice. Who knew Herman Tilke could handle making a track with actual hills in it? Hopefully it won't be as boring as his others.
As much as I love the Speedway and respect it for its history, the F1 course here was boring. Perhaps it would have been better with DRS. The only exception was the sensation you got on the back stretch bridge when an F1 car flew under you at 200+ miles an hour. As sturdy as that thing is it shook considerably. Bernie can take away that race but he can't take away my memories from seeing it live and in person. Amazing stuff.
