There honestly has to be something more to it. The people involved in building this track have money and lots of it, 25 mill is honestly pocket change.

The second I heard about a possible F1 race on the east coast, I knew F1 Austin was screwed. Bernie got what he wanted all along. I believe from the beginning F1 Austin was a last resort for bringing F1 back to the US.

It is too bad really. We deserve a top shelf purpose built race track in the US.
