F1 Fanatic - Mark
Then the students need to rein in their movement and settle this thing. Tuition going up $6/week each year isn’t much more than the cost of a Starbucks so many of them enjoy. And the ones with real financial needs get the help. Whatever agitators have latched onto this movement won’t have a platform if the students realize they have it better than any other young person in Canada.
Ask Greek students how the “free everything” model worked out.
This is really disappointing. This student movement has truly lost the plot. They need to realize that the 80k+ people who attend the race are not millionaires. They are the regular people who pay their taxes so that these kids can get a cheap education.
These students should ask the people in Greece how unbridled entitlements went for them.
I have friends flying in from Calgary a day early so we can all go together to the public pit lane tour. I suppose they should have just sent the extra night’s hotel money directly to the students. I’m sure some of them feel entitled to it.
If the PSL is not an option, we will have General Admission seats that will come out mid-to-late summer. You will still have priority access to purchase these seats over the general public. The prices will be consistent with other F1 races around the world.
So the only seats available to F1 fans who do not want or have the means to buy a PSL are general admission? If that’s the case, the USGP is dead on arrival. This isn’t an NFL franchise with lots of home games and rock concerts.
People, like me, travel great distances, spend lots of money on hotels, food and entertainment for F1 races. I have no need or interest in a PSL.
I’d be very interested in the contract terms for the PSL. Will COTA buy back your PSL at a pro-rated value if Bernie and COTA fall out of love? 15 years is an eternity in the fast moving world of F1.
What I have read concerns me. Once again, it appears F1 is going to fail in America. I’m glad my hotel reservation can be canceled without penalty.
