More Formula 1 in Austin, Texas Snippets!

More “proof” of Formula 1 actually coming to Austin in 2012 continues to filter in.  I found a video of Tavo Hellmund, race promoter of Full Throttle Productions, recorded at his lawyer’s office.  I’ll  let the 3+ minute video speak for itself – just click below.

Tavo Hellmund discusses the path of Formula 1 to Austin, TX in this video!

 

Seems like some pretty solid statements that Tavo makes…  What do you think?

Another informed source released some solid information as to what could be the parcel of land under consideration for the Formula 1 venue.  Seems like a good choice, both close & remote enough, just along the Texas 130 corridor, of off Pearce Lane…we shall see!  I misplaced the link with more specific details.  Sorry, but here’s the image of that parcel:

Here’s another introduction/information video that gives more of an Austin slant:

But here’s a statement from Tavo reflecting a different, not-so-great tone:

But Austin promoter Tavo Hellmund, reportedly a friend of Ecclestone’s for decades, said he is not worried about the tight schedule for 2012.

“If it [the date] slides back, it slides back,” he said.

As more data comes across the Racing Ready desk whether it be “solid” or some really interesting rumors, I’ll post it here!
