I can tell you one thing, there will definitely be a crowd. Tickets are sold out on the official website and there are not many left at the resellers sites. Hotels are unobtainable and folks are having to travel from places like San Antonio to find anywhere to stay. I think Austin is exactly the right place for F1 to visit in the US.

If it turns out to be An epic race with a memorable outcome, instant classic type race, the face of F1 in the US will change forever.

If it is thrilling, the American media will spam it in front of the citizens so much that they will fall passionately in love.

Happy to see it actually built.. Looks like an awesome track, I hope it produces GREAT races.

You never know though...India looks like a great track and the drivers love it... But India was boring this year and was a snooze fest last year too. It's tough to figure out as a simple track like Montreal always has exciting races.

I really hope this race is a great success, I would love to have been able to go to it!

Hope one day to visit Texas, to experience their culture and see a GP there is a tasty proposition.

With it being the penultimate race of this season and the WDC to be decided and the WCC to be concluded its Win Win. The race will get loads of publicity.

Can't wait!!!!!!!!

(Do you reckon the Red Bull Team have swimming pool already organised for their celebration?)

I thought the Brickyard wasn't too bad - for the few years that F1 went there. I liked the inner "anticipation" that built up, as the cars negotiated the twisty sections of that track before unleashing their full power on that straight! 23 to 24 seconds of pure, screaming, unadultrated F1 anger! :-)

I'm excited about it. If my wife hadn't become pregnant, we'd have had our tickets and accommodations booked, as soon as they went on sale. It sounds like the event's going to be a rousing success and that's a very good thing, as I want to go next season!

I am looking forward to it. It is nice that the track is somewhat hilly.

"Big changes in altitude" and then quoting 40 feet... LOL!!!!!!! So it has a hill. That is good, but big changes... Geez modern perspective is warped!

That just shows how utterly crap most modern tracks are.
