After such a wonderful weekend, full of events in Austin, it’s hard to get back to a regular schedule this week. From the gourmet food, ideal location of Legends Club, unbelievable weather outside and a thrilling Grand Prix to watch, our clients enjoyed every second. Below we give you a detail day by day to give you a little bit of insight on what it is truly like going to the F1 USGP with COTA Experiences.
Friday, October 20th, 2016
Entering Circuit of The Americas™ for the first time is a thrilling experience. From the people bustling around, merchants lined up to offer souvenirs and the expansive track, it’s hard not to get in the race spirit. Our clients got a full day of taking in the views of the 3.4-mile track, watching the practice and qualifying rounds, and attending our special Lunch with a Legend event. If you didn’t get the chance to attend this year’s Lunch with a Legend, it is absolutely something you want to put on your list for next year. Each year a driver legend is featured with a question and answer session, as well as a meet and greet for VIP guests. While you are hearing stories about the driver’s past, one of the stories including Paul Newman this year, you will enjoy a top of the line lunch. This year’s feature legend was Danny Sullivan, former F1™ driver and 1985 Indy 500 winner. His unique stories included everything from his famous “spin & win” in 1985 to racing rental cars backwards with Paul Newman to his time starring on Miami Vice.

Saturday was jammed pack, with not a minute to spare. Our Legends Club guests headed straight to hospitality to grab some breakfast before heading to their seats for the day’s events. Open 8:00am to 5:00pm, Legends Club offers a climate-controlled area for guests to relax, grab breakfast, lunch or the afternoon snack depending on the time of day, hit the bar and watch the day’s races live on TVs located throughout the venue. On Saturday, in Legends Club, we had our second special guest of the weekend Alexander Rossi. Rossi answered questions about this year’s Indy 500 win, where he sees his career going and what his future is within F1™. After the final race of the day and closing Legends Club, many of our clients headed out to the stage to see Grammy-winning, pop artist, Taylor Swift. As her only concert of 2016, Swift rocked the stage performing many top hits from her latest album 1989. A great way to wrap up another beautiful day out at Circuit of The Americas™!
Sunday, October 22nd, 2016
It’s finally race day people and believe you me everyone was excited. Was Hamilton going to beat out Rosberg or was this the race where Rosberg would claim victory in the F1™ USGP and the World Title Race overall? Serving breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack again, Legend Clubs was a great spot for our clients to fuel up, take a seat for a moment and get ready for the Grand Prix that was soon to come. Hamilton ended up finding a huge victory in Austin and we had many clients exclaiming the thrill, luxury and enjoyment of the weekend. As like Saturday, Circuit of The Americas™ ended the whole weekend on a high note by featuring singer and song writer Usher and The Roots.
