Wow. Wasn't one of the primary reasons COTA was built was for Formula 1?

What other venues in the United States would make for a good MotoGP track?

they have been trying to get a race in new jersey for years... 6 months ago everyone was saying that Vegas was going to get the race... COTA has a contract for 10 years to host F1 races, and so far the State of Texas has not had a problem kicking in close to $30 million a year to host this race.

I would love to see a race in new york, but given how the economics of F1 work, a one off street race is just not practical because Bernie gets all the money.

Not saying it absolutely won't happen, but I'll believe it when I see it. F1 will have to get a lot more popular in the US before I see this happening.
