The Formula 1 United States Grand Prix is set for November 18, 2012 in Austin, Texas. This will be the first F1 race to be held in the U.S. in five years and it will happen in a little place named Elroy, just southwest of the Capital city. Since its inception the event has been under scrutiny, but the track is now nearly complete. Formula 1 is known as the playground for the rich: A wealthy man's sport for those able to travel the world to watch million dollar sports cars race. But it's more than that, of course. Formula One has a long, prestigious history in the world of sport and, soon, Austin will be inducted. Our on-going series examines the sport, educates on how it works and how to watch it, and will keep you up-to-date on the surrounding issues affecting the race and the circuit.
