Austinites will have to wait till next week to know the fate of a planned Formula One racetrack in Southeastern Travis County, but its not just Austinites paying attention. People from around the world are voicing their opinions on the racetrack in online forums, op-eds and emails to City Hall.
The debate is driving a lot more traffic to the City's TV station as well.
Channel Six, the station that broadcasts city meetings, normally attracts between 300 to 400 viewers to its websites during council meetings. But not on Thursday.
