  • Further doubts for USGP

    https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/u...icial/4794921/

    Austin's senior public health official says that large events are unlikely to take place in the Texan city before the end of the year, casting further doubt on the US Grand Prix, which is still scheduled for October 25.

    Austin is now operating to Stage 3 of its reopening plan after an initial lockdown, which allows groups of up to 10 "low risk" people to gather. That status would have to move to Stage 1 before major events are even considered.
    Dang...

    I would be very surprised if there is more than 10-12 races this year. Expect a couple more venue cancellations, double header ghost races and a cobbled together schedule.

      Long way (relatively speaking) to October, but Austin seems to be taking a pretty conservative route to re-opening.

      COTA (and the owner) are having a particularly bad year. Per the track, the shutdown has already resulted in an overall attendance loss of 600K.
      And Epstein is having problems in his hedge fund biz too.

          That's a massive understatement. They're only hurting themselves.
          No weather forecasts are ever guaranteed, even if confidence level is high. Even a 99% probability will miss 1% of the time. That's the best anybody can do when predicting highly complex events.

            Interesting. Thought that town was progressive , edgy and a bit of a risk taker. Guess that was all a ruse.

              I am not surprised that Austin is slow to re-open.

                USGP at Indy? Or, even crazier, the Charlotte Roval?
                Some fans claim one series or another runs "real race cars." What's everybody else running, fake race cars? :confused:

                  Shutting down longer than needed fits that kind of town to a tee, IMO.

                    I used to live there. I'm less surprised than you are.

                      Which is exactly why they will probably stay shut down longer than necessary.

                        Sounds like people actually use their brains there. Unlike other places. And even here.
