Update: The Austin City Council has opted to postpone its vote to endorse the return of the United States Grand Prix until Wednesday, June 29th. Please continue to help garner support for this event!
Formula 1 and MotoGP Fans Around the U.S.,
Will you come to Austin next year to see Formula 1 return to the U.S. after a 5-year absence? How about in 2013 when MotoGP makes its debut at Austin’s new purpose-built track, Circuit of The Americas? We need to hear from you! More specifically, Austin’s City Council needs to know you are out there, getting ready to come here.
A few vocal activists in Austin have openly challenged projections that the race events will bring tens of thousands of people to Central Texas. The Council needs to hear that millions of Formula 1 and MotoGP fans are here in the U.S. and ready to enjoy the pinnacle of motor sports racing.
We want to convince Austin’s City Council that the projections are real and right and may even be too conservative! We are seeking 25,000 electronic signatures to show the Council that a massive number of fans support Formula One and MotoGP.
And we need your support today. Council is scheduled to vote on June 29th to officially endorse the race. If they do not hear from all of us, it is very possible Circuit of The Americas will not be built. F1 is the anchor tenant for the facility, so we need to help bring it across the finish line!
Please sign our petition today to let Austin’s City Council know how great these races will be for fans all around the U.S.
