I'm glad the race will go ahead.

Playing next to the world's media capitol will surely help grow the sport in the United States, though.
I heard that comment about Spa... and I thought "WTF does a guy from NJ know about Spa?"
sort of believe it when I see it... but they claim a 15 year deal with Bernie's money too.

Tilke ..... again....
I think it'll likely be shit, but the media will wet themselves talking about the skyline of Manhattan etc etc....
