Shanghai has atttracted decent crowds in recent years, I remember the TV proudly showing thousands of people lining up at the gates for entry.

The problem is the venue, these gigantic grand stands are hard to fill for anything but F1 (and maybe not even them, no idea, haven't watched an F1 race in ages).

Really the only WEC race that is truly struggling for crowds aside from COTA is Bahrain, and that will likely ever change simply because the potential spectator base simply isn't there. You can't attract something that just isn't there.
