Austin F1 USGP/COTA Site Visit, June ’11, Part 2

Last weekend’s Austin visit was very worthwhile, with an Austin USGP Formula1, COTA theme.   Yesterday I documented some different track construction developments on the COTA site.   Today’s post chronicles the Wild Bubba’s Meet, Greet & Eat social gathering of like-minded Austin friends of Formula 1. This is the second installment:

Part 2 – The social gathering of Austin-area F1 fans, Saturday evening…

Meeting Bubba of “Speed City, TX” (aka Wild Bubba’s Exotic Game Grill in Elroy, TX), was a pleasant experience.  He is a tall, charming & sincere Texas gentleman.

He put on this Meet, Greet & Eat event that was openly received by fans of the Austin area/region.  There were between 50 to 60 people in attendance at The Hitchin’ Post, in SE Austin.

To make it even more interesting, Stefan brought a significant amount of Formula1 memorabilia from his attic to display.  There was some cool stuff, as you can see!

Food was aplenty – sausage & hot dogs with sauerkraut, as well as Kobe style burgers.  It was bring your own German) beer, but Bubba had more beers, soda & water for the asking.  Bubba is in the planning stages for an even bigger event this coming October – an Oktoberfest – Wild Bubba Formula1 style!  I’ll tell you this – I’m already there!
