I'm having fun looking at Google Earth and imagining what the course would be.
Like Monaco, the most prestigious event on the circuit?where is the run off going to be I can't see it being safe (relatively speaking)?
comparing monaco to nj is a stretch but nice try..... I don't know about the road surface in monaco because I have never been there but I do know that the roads here are crappy to say the leastLike Monaco, the most prestigious event on the circuit?
It will be IMPOSSIBLE to keep attendance low for this race. There will be water taxis/yachts/barges full of people all up and down the river. Private parties galore for those Wall Street people everyone loves to hate. There really aren't any big events for the bigshots to congregate at right now. The Big East Tourney, Yankee games, US Open Tennis, World Series quite often, Giants/Jets games, Belmont Stakes really aren't high profile enough. The Superbowl in 2013 will surely set the bar high and I think F1 will push it up another level.I wonder if all those pissed off fans at the last Indy F1 GP would actually attend another race?
The other thing that has historically kept US attendance low is the lack of US talent in F1 recently. Any promising driver seems to have gone to other series like Nascar. Wonder if we've got any prodigies in the works that coincide with our soon to be windfall of F1 exposure?
