Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Formula 1 Race Comes to Austin Texas - Circuit of the Americas

Formula 1 Race Comes to Austin Texas - Circuit of the Americas

The inaugural Formula 1 Race in Austin Texas' Circuit of the Americas is this coming weekend. Will you be there? I will!

formula 1 circuit of the americas grand prix race austin txI'm so excited! My husband is obsessed with F1, and I couldn't imagine missing a historic race like this in my own backyard.

My mom is coming into town this weekend to watch the kids so we can stay as long as we need without worrying about them.  Friday is also my daughter's birthday, so I won't actually be going to F1 on Friday so I can spend time with her. My husband is enjoying the day with another guy... like he'll be better company than me... j/k

Anyway, I can't wait to come back and post pictures of the experience! This will be my first Grand Prix type race, and I'm stocking up on earplugs!!

Hi Donna,
You got it - plenty of ear plugs and lots of fun.  Many years ago I had the opportunty to go to the Detroit Grand Prix a couple of times.  The noise was a constant but you dealt with it and it was a great deal of fun.  The sparks when the cars corner is what surprised me the most.  Enjoy,

Donna, nice Localism post and certainly a Formula 1 event I'd love to see...I'm afraid time and distance is against me.

Oh I wish I could come and see that! I have tons of cousins in Austin and some even in Round Rock! I could stay with them and then go!

Donna, I'm not much into any sport. When I was a kid, my dad took us to the drag races every Sunday. It was never my thing but I hope you have a great time and look forward to your post.

Donna, that is TOO COOL!  I was not too familiar with F1 racing until I met my husband 10 years ago.  He's a big fan, so we started watching it together.  I've been dreaming of traveling to an Formula One race, now I can travel much closer to home.  I hope you have tons of fun and I look forward to seeing the photos :)

Donna, That really sounds exciting and a lot of fun. Enjoy the time with your daughter on her birthday and special time with you husband with the F1 race. Your mom is a peach for watching the kids so you can have some carefree time, ENJOY!

I got lucky and will be attending. Thankfully I have a client who is a huge fan of both fast cars an racing and was invited. Looking forward to it and yes...taking my ear plugs ;-)

Mel, I don't notice sparks on TV, but I'll watch for them.

Nick, Thousands of people flying in on their private jets. You don't have one?? :)

Sussie, You could!

Tammie, Drag racing seems like it would be boring. All that hype for 2 seconds of a race...

Christina, I had never heard of F1 untril I met my husband 10 years ago (in Dec) too!! Much better than Nascar going in circles.

Tayna, My mom would do anything to spend more time with them since we live almost 4 hours away now.  It'll be great!

Russell, Glad you have such nice clients!
