Tavo gets the last laugh (again)

Recommended Posts

Tavo doesnt look upset with his F1USGP plate on his Mercedes heading to COTA to host Family Guests in his suite while others boycott.   LOL

I guess you're right after all, toyotatim.  How could I have been misled so badly??? 

Oh, and when you're buying your tickets for the USGP, be sure to ask for seats in Tavo's suite.

Hey, when the weather is good and they have someone like Taylor Swift there, they drew nearly 270,000 people.  That is pretty good.  Mr. McCombs is likes that.

I’d love to be able to hold a grudge but COTA is an opportunity to experience a kind of racing we’re lucky to have around here. My opinion is worth exactly what you’re paying for it but boycotting a local multibillion dollar track isn’t any better for the sport than boycotting the local dirt track because you don’t agree with all the choices they’ve made or don’t like the owners. I support the racers having a place to race, kids being able to experience the events and keeping racing alive regardless of my opinions of the periphery.

Choosing not to support a business for personal / ethical reasons is entirely different than organizing a boycott against that business, James. 

I understand why you, and others, choose to attend events at COTA.  It's a great opportunity to witness some great racing on one of the world's most awesome road courses right in our own back yard.

was talking to a dude there a few years back he asked about racing in Austin, I told him we had a bad ass track right down the road some years back and told him the name, he said in his foreign accent "what is a speed-o-rama"  LOL!!!

Yea and when the owner posts on facebook one day "screw all the nonsense I'm buying a boat" everyone will act surprised. Racetracks a racetrack, we need to support them all.

I don't disagree with that and I personally felt the same way for years but after seeing what CoTA does for the grass-roots racers it didn't make sense to me anymore. I don't like Jerry Jones but I'd support my kids football team if they played there.

My distaste for CoTA is a personal thing and I am not asking anyone to understand my position or even agree with me. I have explained myself more than once and I fully understand that others may, or may not, agree with me. 

Just like with anything else in life or the racing world,  if you enjoy events at CoTA, then, by all means, you should support it.

I (ordinarily) respect other peoples' opinions on here.  I hope others will respect ours NICK and JAY.  Funny thing happened at my house out here a couple of years ago.  My son and a friend he works with flew down here from Seattle to attend the USF1GP at cota.  I picked them up at the Austin airport, brought them out here and they stayed overnight.  The next morning as they were preparing to leave to go to Cota, my son asked me "Aren't you coming?".  I smiled back at him and told him " NO, You two go on, take my truck, enjoy the race and have a good time. I don't go to cota events."

We all hang out with our family at the track, just like Tavo.  Nothing better than family time, regardless whose feelings are hurt.

Nick doesn't have justify his feelings about Cota to anyone.  It's his opinion and I happen to agree with him. 

But don't question his love, passion and support for Motorsport. He's been stepping up to the pump for a very long time!  

Jus my 2c...
