There were a LOT of speculators suggesting 3 years was all before they (COTA) went broke.......they may have been a conservative estimate at this point.

You of weekend racers, you might as well your attendance for most events.

Looks like I am NOT going to MotoGP at this point, and no plans for any event at this point.

'em. I speak my mind with my $

I'm gonna ask them to refund my money for the MotoGP tickets. Dont care watching others ride while i can't ride the track. And gonna black list it for any event they intent to hold there that does not directly benefit the weekend riders. Will bring my money to somewhere else. Jares is back in schedule. COTA!!!
Fuming!!

Circuit of The Americas™ today set the record straight on the venue’s track rental program and responded to questions raised in social media forums about the program’s future direction. “Circuit of The Americas currently offers a track rental program for organizations and clubs and private individuals that provides automotive enthusiasts with a world-class experience at the United States’ only purpose-built Formula 1™ facility,” Circuit spokesperson Julie Loignon said. “We have had inquiries and discussions with a number of organizations that are interested in renting our facility, and we’ve determined that we will not be able to work with all of them in the coming year. We have contacted organizations that did not have fully executed rental agreements to inform them of our decision. We regret not being able to assist them with a track rental in 2013 and hope there are other ways we can accommodate their interest in Circuit of The Americas in the future.”

I must have missed something, she said they couldn't work with ALL the organizations. She didn't say they wouldn't work with any.
