Yes I know, but the major difference is that the race in Indianapolis was over 1000KM's away. It was closer for the people in the N.E. United States to come to Montreal rather than going to Indianapolis. With a Race in their own back yard, all those people from the North Eastern U.S. will just go to NYC instead of Montreal. I wouldn't be surprised if the number of out of town tourists were to drop by 20%.

Yes, I agree. I'm not against having a second G.P. race in North America. I understand the economics of have 2 races on our continent. What worries me is that the 2nd race is much too close for comfort. I would've been much happier had the US grand Prix were to happen in Texas or California or some other far away place.
If anything, this is good news for us because we will no longer be the only stop in North America. The cost of bringing the entire circus to this continent for only one event has always left our race vulnerable to cancellation. Having the 2 races in close proximity and presumably back to back should ensure that the two are successful and sustainable well into the future.
