And I'm not sure you can get a paddock pass either (at least for reasonable money) like you can at one of the European rounds. It's almost worth flying to Belgium, take in the Spa race and have a nice vacation in the region for the cost of a weekend in Texas.
In regards to Austin beginning to price itself out of its own market, Will Buxton tweeted: "If that's what Austin wants, it's going the right way about it. "How was Austin?" we'll be asked. "Don't know. But San Antonio was awesome!"

He said so in the same manner that the people that pay their own way stay in Dubai and not Abu Dhabi for that race since it also priced itself too high for too many.
