Just under 300 days separate us from the return of the United States Grand Prix. At least that's the idea, now that construction has resumed on the troubled Circuit of the Americas on the outskirts of Austin, Texas. But an encouraging sign is that race organizers have started gearing up to sell tickets.

While seats haven't exactly been put up for sale just yet, organizers are now populating a wait list for premium seats. Those constitute seats with an advantageous view of the action, covered from the Texas sun, with priority parking and concessions.

No matter how many seats you'll want to buy, you can get your name down on that list with a $100 deposit. If General Admission is more your pace, however, those won't begin selling until the summer.

      The wording is a bit confusing in the email and on the site, but this is actually a wait list for concessions. So this won't give you ticket, just the right to buy tickets for the next 15 years. They will call people on the waiting list starting March 1st to see what they are interested in. It's unclear if they will offer the tickets for the Formula 1 Grand Prix at that time or not. So concession will run between $1,000 and $5,000 no word on ticket pricing yet (premium or GA for that matter)

      They have already opened the gated for the scalpers and corporate price gougers. The deposit is to have priority at buying a set for the next 15 years, in other words, pay for your spot, then every year sell your tix at a 300% mark up.

      I got the email and the deposit is $100 (Refundable if you change your mind) and the tickets are between $1,000 and $5,000 ea.

      It's a $100 deposit to lock in a place in line to buy a license to a seat that's good for 15 years. This gives you first crack at a ticket for any event at the track. The license costs vary from $1000 to $5000. I put my deposit in. I'll have to see how that goes. I live about 45 miles form the track.

      First the USGP team. Now this track. What's next? F1 is dead in America. Move on.

      100 down and how much for the rest? Another 100? 75? 150?

      Wow it's so close yet they don't even have real pictures of the track. I wonder if it will be ready.
