...interested to see what all the A-town hippies have to say... not that I -care- what they say, but I would expect lots of wailing and gnashing of teeth.

"Waaah! We don't want your technology killing our beauiful planet! Waaaah!"

Any time progress is made, people will complain.

Edit: Does anyone know when they're going to start selling tickets?

Tilke To Design New Austin Circuit


By Jonathan Noble
Thursday, May 27th 2010, 07:55 GMT


The new Austin Formula 1 track, which will host the American Grand Prix from 2012, is to be designed by Hermann Tilke, race organisers have announced.

Shortly after revealing its 10-year deal to hold the US event, Austin race promoters Full Throttle Productions have now earmarked a site for the circuit and confirmed that Tilke will be involved.

The exact location of the venue has not been disclosed, but Tavo Hellmund, managing partner of Full Throttle Productions, was quoted as saying by the Associated Press that its was 'more than 700 acres.'

Hellmund also ended speculation about who would design the track by confirming that F1 regular Tilke, the man behind track designs at Istanbul, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Shanghai, and Sepang, will be involved.

Race promoters said the track would be "one of the finest permanent road course facilities in the world. Fans should expect the craftsmanship Tilke is famous for, with a priority placed on green building and a track similar to the great grand prix tracks of previous generations."

Wait...what?.. you're missing the point there. The hippies are going to freak out about the entire project... the land-use, the noise, the influx of uber-rich folks tooling around in their mega-buses/motorhomes/whatever. The general clogging of various traffic arteries. The use of state funds to finance something that -celebrates- the unbridled burning of fossil fuels at prodigious rates. While F1 cars may make power efficiently, I seriously doubt they do it 'cleanly'... even if they do, it's the last thing on the list for the hippies to get torqued up about.

Again, not that I give a flip... but that was the point i was making.



If you listen closely, you can hear their patchouli plants screaming...

In Austin, these are generally clogged anyway.

the rest of it, yeah, they'll likely be nonplussed by the situation.
