    We was leaving this barbecue place and this helicopter came flying in with some people. I asked him what he planned to charge the Formula 1 people for a round trip? He answered $600.

    A $286 ticket ? And a $114 service charge ? ...............That's outrageous, that's greed at it's finest, that is b.s.

    One of my customers is going. He said their hotel was reg rate $120. $250 for the race. He didn't tell me what the race ticket price was. He must have been too embarrassed to admit what he paid.

    A 50 mil track, i guess that isn't a surprise. Did you know that 1 formula one engine cost's about $900,000 ? For $286 you would think that's the price for a skybox seat, but i'll bet that's the standard grandstand seat. Do you know how many seat's total there are ?
