Formula One Update

I usually don't just post links on my blog, but the Austin American Statesman ran an article today with a sort of post F1 analysis of the event.  It sort of praises the overall experience of fans, but questions whether the economic benefits for local businesses were as strong as predicted.
Just kind of an interesting piece.  I think that F1 will ultimately be seen as a positive experience for Austin, but it's kind of fascinating to watch Austin try to incorporate a major high end car racing event into our local culture.

All I know is that you DO NOT suggest to a Formula One fan that there is room for improvement or that Austin may not have needed this event. That answer is incorrect and only demonstrates the stupidity of questioning such a brilliant strategic move as placing a race in the middle of a town with no interest in the sport.
