I think a GP would have a higher attendance but I'm not sure if it would be more successful as an Indy race would need a lower attendance to be considered a success than a GP. A GP would be better attended but I'd be skeptical if it would be well attended enough. It would be wicked to see a GP race in Calgary.
I'd try to go to an Indy race but would deffo be there for a GP. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll see one any time soon as F1 is so political and money driven these days.
