Here is a list of seven things that cost less than the General Admission ticket price to see the Formula 1 race in Austin, TX at Circuit of the Americas in November, 2013. Not to mention, several of them traveled farther than the 192-mile length of the race! Exciting, right?
A ticket to the race itself costs $170… And for that amount you could ship:
1. Baldwin Piano
This piano traveled a short distance from one Ohio town to another, about 37 miles total.

This classic red devil was hauled from Southern to Gulf Coastal Florida, a short 139 miles.
4. Saf-T-Lift 2436pb
This bright yellow crane bucket traveled 195 miles between a Ritchie Bros. Auction site outside Orlando, Florida to the coast near the Gerogia state line.
5. Vintage Coca Cola Machine
