Indeed - and some real ******* (former) land owners got real rich in the making.

A nearby rural quik-stop store is making a killing being on the only entrance road to the track.

Sunday's race will determine if Bernie will push for another USA F1 venue or just let Austin die.

Traffic problems did not materialize - buses shuttled spectators to/from Austin pick-up points.

AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Lewis Hamilton claimed the victory and Red Bull clinched the constructors title but the biggest winner at the U.S. Grand Prix was Formula One with commercial supremo Bernie Ecclestone immediately calling for more races in America.

"The future of F1 in the USA? I think we'll finish with three races here within the next three years," a beaming Ecclestone told reporters. "The race was fantastic wasn't it? Really was a super race.

Formula One teams up and down the Austin paddock could not hide their delight at being back in the U.S., while Ecclestone found a new-found enthusiasm for a market he had once dismissed.
---
Formula One is a global championship, and Austin played its part with aplomb. On behalf of European fans, thank you for a brilliant show. That passion must be sustained and I hope you will become part of the F1 family as we continue on to the Brazilian Grand Prix next weekend.
