Does this sound familiar? Turkey is about to lose their Formula One race because Bernie wants to double the size of the vig from $13 million to $26 million. The reaction of officials in Turkey is essentially that Bernie is out of his frickin’ mind. But we already knew that. It’s a damned shame Formula One does not put its fans first. Even more pathetic is the way in which the most diehard fans of that branch of the sport simply swallow whatever gets launched toward their throats. How could we expect any other type of behavior from Bernie and crew? It will interesting to see how ‘sweet’ the Austin deal stays.
The Indy Cars will be headed for Brazil before long, and the fourth race of the season should be still another home run in terms of attendance, as each of the previous three events of the season already have. There are some who just cannot stand to see such success. Watching them suffer is not fun and it is my wish they ultimately grow up. Five more days until May!
