    Default F1 @ Austin Texas spectator "seat licenses" on sale now.

    A link below re a deposit on $1,000 "seat licenses" for preferred seating at all events for 15 years - for those that have the time and the money.

    So, I pay a one-time fee of $1,000 - $5,000 per permanent preferred seat in the grandstands for the next 15 years?

    Not a bad deal.. Assuming F1 keeps coming back and there's other major races held here. Then again, one seat isn't enough, and $4,000-$20,000 I'd rather spend to become a member of a track and do the driving myself

    It sounds more like you pay that money to get first dibs at that specific seat, but you would still have to pay per event.....
    "A persoanl seat license entitles its holder to purchase tickets for all racing events at Circuit of The Americas for the next 15 years. The license also gives its holder a priority position to purchase tickets for entertainment events held at Circuit of The Americas for the duration of the license."

    Do you own the license? Can it be sold in the future?

    how often do a race event sell out (other than NASCAR) in U.S.
    it might make sense for Texans (for an event that might sell out, they can get the first dib, then scalp it). but for us Californian, don't make too much sense.

    That makes more sense. I wonder how many will be business and corporate buyers.
