Cool, I might have to go to that.

OK, I can see *why* they yanked The Glen, but, seriously, folks, you could lose St. Pete as the starter, bump some of the series up one race, and drop The Glen in between Indy and Belle Isle or right after Belle Isle, and, you know, actually *promote* the race at The Glen? Or drop Iowa and replace it with The Glen?

I've been trying to figure out how many tickets to get. I'm super stoked.

Definitely one of those, "oooh, this is awesome, oh, that sucks," kinda things.  But I think overall it won't hurt the series, and it'll be great for Portland to get back on a major circuit.  Just hope that being a club circuit for so long they haven't fall down to NOLA standards.

Before it was cool?

I'll take the swap. I might be in the minority, but I've thought of the Glen as overrated for a while. At least we aren't doing shiat holes like Edmonton anymore (the circuit, not the town, although I've never been there to know any better.)

I wish they would race in Vancouver again. It is something I would love to attend, but not enough that I would travel for it.

Great. I live two miles from there.

This so much. Already have lodging reserved, just gotta get tickets when they start selling.

Happy to see them back after the end of ChampCar.

Also every time I see a good/bad thing like this I hear it read as a good idea/bad idea from animaniacs.

drop phoenix and iowa and keep the glen and add the Milwaukee Mile.

Maybe they can make the required changes to the Glen to bring F1 there again... It definitely feels like a track that would suit that series, but I just wonder if the changes to run off area required would be worth it.
