I know I’m an eternal pessimist, but c’mon, I’ve been saying this thing ain’t getting off the ground for a year or two now. I will not be convinced of any Grand Prix taking place in these United States until loud, buzzing engines are making people put earplugs in on a Friday morning. Here are two news stories that have just broken today.
Take what you will from each of them, but this isn’t looking good. There have been rumors of this for a few weeks now, but it is starting to look officially official that there is just going to be a bunch of dirt moved around for no reason in the middle of Texas. Don’t get me wrong, I would like to see this Grand Prix take place, but I’m on the verge of saying I saw this coming from a mile away.
