“Americans Don’t Like Formula 1” – The Real Story, Part 2

In my last piece on this subject, I observed that in the US press this meme about Formula 1 fans got repeated often in the run up to the USGP, though almost always without any data (Americans don’t like numbers?). Data on 2012 race attendance has just been published, and interestingly enough the two races most likely attended by Americans (US citizens)—the Grand Prix du Canada and the United States Grand Prix—ranked second and third out of twenty races on the F1 calendar. In other words, based on attendance last year, the meme is wrong.

Update: 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Unveiled

Our problem with the Cruze is this; It is not cheap. Unoptioned, it starts at $25,695, or only slightly more than a mid-range Jetta TDI (a basic, entry level TDI can be had for $23,055, though). But the Cruze is going to be parked in the showroom next to a car that looks identical, returns the same 42-mpg highway number, and has a starting price of just $20,490 (that’d be the Cruze Eco, for people still guessing). Importantly, the cost of diesel is generally higher in the US than gas. Pair that with the extra $5000 that the Diesel demands and the fact that it’s no more efficient than the Cruze Eco, and we’re starting to wonder how Chevy dealers are going to move this oil-burning sedan.
