Didn't answer the question.

I have a place, but was thinking of having a few people, and doing a BBQ thing.

Maybe next year I'll head down...

My GF thinks I'm a freak for being such a big F1 fan and not going. I need to do it one year though. It's Austin or Canada.

The girl and I have been planning to go. We've had a room booked since last winter. Just got the ticket price email though and it's a bit re-donk. Guess I'm spoiled by Indy. Still debating making the trip.

I've always bought tix at the track from a scalper for F1, MotoGP, and the 500 (pre IRL), but I wonder if I can get away with that in Austin. Never paid face value and always got good seats.

Yeah I though it is a bit much more than i've paid for any sporting event. When we had ALMS races here in houston I always scored free tickets. I wonder why there is no 1 day option.

Because it's F1 and a new track that is having ---- loads of money problem so they are doing what ever they can to make you pay more.

I know its F1 and all but its hard for me to pay that to not have seats and not know what I will be doing at work 6 months out. I can not commit to 3 days. I'll probably just see how things go this year and let them work out the kinks.

(I do not mind the no seats thing but they don't even have camping options up yet.)

Yeah, I'm afraid it might be a cluster this year.

Hotels are about $250 a night even for the crap ones and 75% or more are booked from months ago.
