The figures could be considered a little misleading. The most significant figure to my mind is the highest single day attendance.

Also the figures don't make it clear whether these are individual attendees, or if the same person attending the same event on more than one day is counted more than once.

These aren't statistics. They're numbers.

I think the problem with motoGP and F1 in the US is the American parochial approach to team sports. They have their 'football', baseball and basketball - none of which appear much outside the US. Their support and representation in world team sports e.g. football, F1, motoGP is very poor. In motor sports they have NASCAR and AMA which appear to have huge support but which rarely stage any events outside the US, making them almost invisible to the rest of the planet. The American people have chosen to reject F1 and motoGP to a great extent and have what they perceive as perfectly good alternatives. They may be right, they may be wrong but its their decision.
Europe, Asia and Australia take a different view and love the international competition.
