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.
I was able to meet up with many influential Formula 1 friends & ardent supporters.
Besides race fans, there was a visit from the Red Bull girls…
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!
Tomorrow will be Part 3, the coverage of the Montreal Formula 1 race watching party. Racing Ready will see you then…
