X-Prize Cup

This is a really cool idea and has a lot of potential to drive development that can help in achieving private access to space.

I am concerned about the size of the course. While 10,000 feet by 3,000 feet seems pretty big, when you think about the speed that a rocket powered plane can reach it should go around the course pretty damn quick!

The fans at the event could be a really interesting group. Imagine your NASCAR fans camped out with their satellite TV equipped RVs sharing space with space geeks with RVs bristling with antenna and dishes for every bandwidth and technology. Tail-gaters grilling ribs next to LAM parties playing Total Annihilation!
