Any news on the US Gp? It just went dead, no track layout no nothing! Have they forgot?
Development. These things do take time. They reportedly have the land, and Hermann Tilke was said to be in Austin buying office space. As of last night, Bernie Ecclestone said he was in New York/Jersey looking at potential sites for a second race, so that at least implies that some progress has been made and Tilke has tome between now and construction. Tavo Hellmund is reportedly going to be at the British Grand Prix to shed light on some more details (it seems he wanted to announce the race and the details as one at the race, but FOM beat him to it), but I don’t have a source. Still, it’s only Wednesday – there’s plenty of time for him to show up.
There is, however, a lot of doubt from fan groups, who think that the Austin race is just going to be a repeat of USF1. These people are mostly confined to the Autosport forums, however, and that’s a pretty toxic place.
