Austin F1 Race Events Ramping Up, Starting w/ Octoberfest!

Austin Fan Fest 2012 - A Downtown GrandPrix Celebration

If you’ve subscribed to the press releases from Circuit of The Americas (CoTA), you no doubt have learned about the variety of Fan Fest happenings in downtown Austin.  I posted some introductory info here.

Well, there is more… But first we need to talk about what we are dubbing the FIRST “Unofficial” event of the F1 race weekend events, & it starts 1 month prior to the actual race weekend (that’s 2 months from today!).  It’s Wild Bubba’s Octoberfest, his 4th in a series of Meet, Greet & Eat casual get-togethers for area & regional Formula 1 race fans.  Here’s information on 2 of these prior events, W.B.’s M.G.& E.#2 & W.B.’s M.G.& E.#3

Here’s what Wild Bubba (aka, Wyman Gilliam) has to say:

It’s time for another Meet, Greet, & Eat!  This free event is about a mile east of the Circuit of the Americas and is open to everyone.  Expect plenty of grassroots US Grand Prix fans and others who are excited about F1 in Austin!

  • Hosted by Wild Bubba himself and, The Unofficial Austin Grand Prix Social Calendar.
  • Wild Bubba’s Octoberfest will take place at Wild Bubba’s Wild Game Grill about 1 month before the US Grand Prix.
  • Live music and free food in the outdoor “Tilke Biergarten.”
  • This is the fourth “Meet, Greet, and Eat” event, organized and attended by dedicated local F1 fans. Visitors are welcome to join!
  • The restaurant is located less than 1 mile east of the Circuit of the Americas and decorated floor-to-ceiling in Formula 1™ paraphernalia.
  • Extra parking will be available.

For a much broader view of all the important social (& otherwise) race events, here’s a timely social events calendar resource for F1 related activities around Austin – it’s – The Unofficial Grand Prix Social Calendar.

Here’s what Austin Race Events says:

Wild Bubba’s upcoming Octoberfest will be the equivalent of the F1 Paddock Club “Before Party”!  Yes, it will be 1 month in advance of the actual running of the Austin F1 USGP, but it WILL be THE event for local/regional folk to get amped up about the racing/social event that is Formula 1.  All the local players will be there promoting their part in this event.  You will NOT want to miss this!

To help out, here’s a map (click to enlarge)…
