@ Tony Soprano...


Question: The powers that be in the States seem rather tentative to commit to F1 (Quite understandably, as it's NOT a cheap event to host, never mind hosting TWO races). So, this is just a thought, but in MotoGP (Laguna) and WSBK (Miller) the support classes don't attend. Why not leave the GP2 and GP3 guys at home for these rounds, and instead, as a support race, rather schedule Indy to run at the same time at one (Or both events) and maybe give NASCAR a road event at the other? Could this work? It would solve a problem of filling stands and growing interest in F1 there at the same time.

Nick636....What a good idea.
I don't know how the politics would work out (who's name is first on the programme etc etc) but if it could be done it would be a good way to popularise F1.

My thoughts exactly... I think the one issue though, would be ticket pricing as they aren't series' that run concurrently, so do you charge separate admition (Which would not work)? Or have a slightly higher ticket price than you usually would have to keep both ends happy...? Either way, I think that would be a way to keep the American fans Really happy and show them what F1 is all about and also show the rest of the world that Indy and NASCAR aren't just about going round in circles....

yes. a good idea. but the stumbling block is bernie. F1 comes as a package, like a travelling show, and bernie would not allow someone else to make money out of HIS show. the other day, another poster stated that bernie does not even allow other races during the year, on his f1 tracks, such as turkey. not sure how true that is, as silverstone, hockenheim etc all have other series using them.

Too right, the guy's a troll.

I think the one issue with my plan, as previously stated is the costs. How they decide how the cash gets split? And, with Bernie charging what he does to host F1, how do they cover the costs of F1 AND Indy/NASCAR without charging PATHETIC prices for the tickets?
