There was a link in that story to a blog that suggests that the Austin project is much further along than most people assume.

Almost sounds like Tavo Hellmund is the kind of guy who likes to keep his head down and get the work done.  The information on this guy is all over the map, but if really did start to develop an F1 track without telling anyone, then I'm quite impressed.

How does someone who is more concerned with getting the job done than being flashy get into F1?   :-[

He isn't quite in F1 yet, but I am slightly more impressed than before.

I'm sure it will be OK just as long as he isn't in any way related to the guys from Donnington!!

By the way, during a visit to Dallas recently a guy I met seriously explained that Texas was the obvious choice because it is in the middle of the USA, understands Grand Prix and is easy to get to from anywhere in the world!

To a Brit, that statement is wrong in so many ways!

Kansas is actually the middle of the US.  Texas is in the south.  Getting to Texas from anywhere in Europe means changing planes in the north-east, so I'm not sure what he means by 'easy to get to'.  I don't know any Texans, so I can't speak for their knowledge of F1 Racing, but I didn't even think there were any F1 fans in Kentucky, so what do I know?   :P

American flies Dallas to Paris and Dallas to London direct. That's pretty close. The announcement that the property was already purchased and Tilke was already on the job made me alter my prediction from impossible to highly unlikely. God help us another Tilke snooze a drome!!
