Not to many of us American F1 fans. I've been an F1 fan since the early 70's, going to Watkins Glen. When COTA opened I was intrigued by the RV row right along the fence on one of the back straights. Looked into those spots thinking it would make for the ultimate RV/F1 experience. I guess the promoters thought the same thing, I think they are somewhere in the range of $50,000/year and you get that spot for all COTA events.

Oh well, seemed like a good idea for a moment. About the only similarities to those days in Watkins Glen is that fact that they still have 4 wheels and rubber tires. Yes, I suppose advancing technology is a good thing but I sure do miss the sound of the V12's spinning at 20,000 RPM.

<<Please don't post any comments on the race winner (hopefully not Hamilton), queued up on the DVR. Was working on the coach all weekend getting ready for the winter trek to AZ.>>

Really - They had 250,000 fans at this race last year in Texas. One of the Largest attendance of the 2013 season for F1. I would say Americans are very much into F1. Have you seen the grandstands at a NASCAR race lately? The television stations are asked not to show all the empty stands.

I'm just saying my experience is limited interaction when trying to strike up an F1 conversation with most Americans. Plenty of discussion to be had with Europeans, Brazilians or Japanese.

I did watch the race since my other post and it looked like at least 8 of the RV spaces were empty. I wonder if the people didn't show up or if they are unsold. Oh and Hamilton won. At least Rosberg is still in contention.

I did notice the parking area for RV's 😜 Hope I can get there in a few years and check it out. I've been a fan for over 25yrs and was one of those crazy dudes who would get up at 4am and watch the races. Thank god for DVR's 😜

I hope to be there next year. And yes, my man won.
Would love to hear feedback on anyone who parked there, or there abouts.
