Bobby Epstein would like to see more Formula 1 races taking place in the United States. According to the head of the circuit at Austin, Circuit of the Americas, there is enough demand from fans in North America to stage more races.
Two races are currently planned in the US, and they will be expanded with a night race in Las Vegas next season. The Miami Grand Prix was on the calendar for the first time this year, while Austin has been racing since 2012. But according to Epstein, this could certainly be expanded with multiple races in the US.
Around the Circuit of the Americas, Epstein says the race is attracting more fans than there is. For this reason, it seems logical for him to organize several races in the United States. “The demand is incredible in the US at the moment. So there will be at least three races, but there could be a lot more,” he said. Autosport.com.

My own experience
Epstein can mainly talk about the Grand Prix that took place on his track. This year, for the tenth time, the US Grand Prix will be held there, which, according to Epstein, sold out in two days. According to him, it will certainly be possible to increase the capacity, but this will come at the expense of experience, and Epstein has no intention of reducing this aspect. He believes that the sport is becoming more and more popular in the United States, and he is doing everything he can to make it as enjoyable as possible for the fans. “We do not control the content on the track. We control the entertainment and work off the track.”
