For a three-day pass of one of the world's biggest international sporting events, that's not a bad deal at all. It's certainly a lot cheaper than priority personal seating and, surprisingly, every single other Formula One Grand Prix in the calendar. That said, if you just wanted to see a more all-American open-wheel series, Indy Car would be a lot cheaper.

Aside from the amazing amount of bullcrap circulating around this race, and presuming it actually happens, man am I glad I decided not to attend. After the race was cancelled, then not, then moved, then cancelled, then not for the second time, I decided I wasn't about to bet $1,000+ dollars of travel expenses and time on planning a trip that may or may not exist. And now this?

BTW, that is a ridiculously bad deal. 3-day ticket to on of the world's biggest international sporting events, the USGP at Laguna Seca? $75. And that includes AMA Superbike as "support" races.

For Austin's GA ticket price, you can get special parking right next to your seats and reserved granstand seating w/ TV monitor.

For Austin's grandstand price, you can be in Laguna Seca's VIP lounges with special parking, paddock passes, and basically the full works.

And let's not compare the Indy GP, where you can get a 3-day pass for $70, and for $130, you can be in the "Penthouse."

CP all the way.
