Hello. I'm not trying to pick a fight with you on this, but do they need broader appeal? If they have seating for, roughly, 200,000 people, and it is almost "sold out" except for three areas of Premium Seating, then there's not really a need for them to get much more appeal, right?
I've never been to one of these, and I'm going for all three days in November. I didn't buy the $2,000 seats, though, but then again, you have people that pay tens of thousands of dollars to see a Super Bowl NFL game. I think it's a ridiculous amount of money to spend watching a football game. Regarding the Formula 1 race, as a first-in-the-USA-at-permanent-track event, and a (near) sell-out, they appear to be successful already.
