Anybody Else Understand This?

"BIG NEWS FOR SLIDELL – The Star-Telegram reports today that a Southlake couple has purchased 441 acres near the intersection of FM 51 and FM 455 near Slidell for a major new Formula One-style auto road course. The project is expected to cost $3.5 million." (From The Update)

This is awesome! Not only will the new track help bring business to Wise County, Formula One and road racing in general is a better style of racing then NASCAR.

Formula 1 is largely popular in Europe. I can't imagine a Formula 1 race in Wise County. There would be a mass influx of European people that weekend.

Oh, let the comedy begin.

Think I35 is a mess on race weekend? You ain't seen nothin' yet! Wait until 30K-50K people descend on FM51/FM455 w/in 24 hrs. of each other. For sure, oh let the comedy begin. (And for all you self-proclaimed entrepreneurs, nod-nod, wink-wink)

Southlake might as well buy Slidell. Annex it as another piece of land. Stick an air conditioned port a potty for all of the foofy foofy formula 1 fans on the ground. damn this beer tastes good.

You might be surprised anon 11:39 AM - heck, I'm gonna build a hotel in Forestburg......or maybe buy that corner station on 455 and 51 that's closed - I think gas was $1.88 when it shut down.

3.5 million spent in Slidell?

This might even top anything Decatur can come up with.

That just cannot happen!
