What. A. Weekend! From perfect weather, to delicious food, entertaining racing legends and topping it all off with an unforgettable race, this was an event we’ll remember! Walking through the front doors of the Legends Club hospitality was the perfect escape from the warm weather and hustle and bustle of the crowds. You were met with smiling faces, the smell of mouthwatering foods and up-beat music.
Lunch with a Legend
To kick off our weekend, we began with Lunch with a Legend on Friday afternoon. Doors opened at 11 and guests swarmed in, grabbed their wristband and found their seats as servers wandered around with plates of hors d’oeuvres. By noon, guests formed a line at the buffet where they could fill their plates with the assortment of delicious delicacies. The cheddar mashed potatoes were a real crowd pleaser and the braised beef filled many happy stomachs.
Juan Pablo Montoya took the stage to speak about his incredible racing career, his wife, his children and what he is up to now. The crowd was given the opportunity to ask a few questions, to which Juan Pablo responded in lengthy, in-depth answers, which guests greatly appreciated. Once he was done speaking, VIP ticket holders grabbed an autograph and a picture with Juan Pablo and some even had the chance to make small conversation with the racing legend. The reactions from some of the guests, on meeting their idol driver, was priceless.
Legends Club Day 1
As the doors opened bright and early on Saturday, guests filled the venue for breakfast. Some ventured out on the back patio where they were welcomed with an unobstructed view of the start line and Turn 1. With tables that sat up to 8, lounge chairs and couches, and bar seating, guests were given many seating options to suit their needs.
The weather Saturday was better than anyone could have ever hoped with a few clouds in the sky, staying in the 80’s. Kids, parents, grandparents, and young adults all found themselves practicing being a Formula 1™ driver with the interactive racing games Legends Club provided. When asked if he was an expert now, one child said, “it took me a few laps to get the hang of it, but now I’m in first place by five seconds, I’m definitely a professional!”
The day moved along with an unreal lunch filled with smoked brisket, firecracker shrimp skewers, creamy mac and cheese and so much more! For those who couldn’t get enough of Juan Pablo Montoya, he made a second special appearance to answer a few more questions which brought around a huge crowd of Legends Club guests. His relaxed attitude made everyone feel as though they were just having a conversation with a friend, even though he’s an absolute racing legend.
As Juan Pablo wrapped up, the epic sushi display commenced, with every single kind of sushi roll, nigiri and hand roll you could imagine, from fish to vegetarian. Even if you aren’t a sushi lover, you would’ve enjoyed this!
Legends Club Day 2
RACE DAY! Legends Club was buzzing on Sunday with excited fans decked out in appropriate gear they’d either bought the day before or had for years. The crowd pleaser for breakfast was the pancake bar that you could make with whatever your heart desired. For lunch it was a seafood lover’s paradise with lump crab, shrimp salad, jumbo shrimp, and crab legs that most everyone dove right in to.
After lunch “The Professor”, Alain Prost, took the stage and he struggled getting into the high-top chair and climbed on in a comedic fashion, which left the crowd laughing along with him. Following this, he spoke about his iconic racing career and answered a few questions from the crowd which guests were eager to ask him.
To close out race day in Legends Club, we topped it off with a scrumptious taco bar which went over very well. From quesadillas to guacamole and chips, there was something to satisfy everyones needs.
Good food, great entertainment and happy guests, is all we could ask for in legends cup for the FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX weekend.
