Beers and hot dogs might be a little more expensive at COTA this year.

https://www.statesman.com/news/20190...-state-funding

Excerpts below. Entire article at the link above.

Quote:
Circuit of the Americas is out at least $25 million in state funding after Gov. Greg Abbott’s office rejected its annual application for reimbursement following the 2018 Formula One race at the track.


----
According to an October 2018 letter from the governor’s office obtained by the Statesman, CELOC missed the deadline to submit a required human trafficking prevention plan by 30 days before the 2018 U.S. Grand Prix. Bryan Daniel, the governor’s executive director of economic development and tourism, wrote that because CELOC failed to meet the deadline, its application for reimbursement had been rescinded.

The plan was due Sept. 19. CELOC submitted it Oct. 3.

“In this case, the law is clear that if a human trafficking prevention plan is not submitted 30 days prior to an event, a reimbursement from the Major Events Fund cannot be issued,” Abbott spokesman John Wittman said in an emailed statement. “The State of Texas and COTA have a productive partnership that has had a tremendous economic impact on the city of Austin and the state as a whole, and our office is already working with COTA on next year’s race.”

Large-scale sporting events, including F1 races, are known to lead to increases in prostitution surrounding the event. During previous F1 races at Circuit of the Americas, local law enforcement agencies teamed up to fight sex trafficking.

Probability? With diminishing athletic ability as a function of age and the impact of injury being weighted over time being a variable in the equation.

So...age. But those impacts are also happening to his competitors (at least the ones we think have a chance -- the new recruits not so much).
Good to see you reading BARF, mate. I duck in only occasionally (to throw darts at DonJig and the like). I was hoping for something insightful, like reversion to the mean or something (which, btw, wouldn't explain the claim).

All: I watched 2015 Phillip Island last night. What a glorious race.

I've seen that done before in MotoGP. It's not that big a deal, but rest assured the mechanics making those calls know their shit. I think this return spring business happens when the rear master cylinder doesn't quite work with the mounting points or other crap around it. Might be a new combination of parts. Probably won't see that rubber band next time. It is neat to see little slip-ups like this -- it's almost more impressive to see their improvised track-side solutions than when everything goes according to plan.

Moto 3 champ Jorge Martin had a return bungee on his lever last season when he had a hand injury and corrective surgery went wrong.

Interesting. The asphalt on race tracks is nothing like the asphalt on streets.
