The 2016 FORMULA ONE UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX™ was one for the history books. With Lewis Hamilton clinching another win, where some now feel the circuit is “his track”, on the hunt for Nico Rosberg, the beautiful weather, live entertainment and the gourmet fare, we couldn’t have asked for more. Here are our top 5 takeaways from the 2016 race.
- Look no further than Legends Club for the VIP treatment
Open throughout the weekends activities, COTA Experiences Legends Club was the ultimate VIP experience. From the Alexander Rossi Q&A, football games and live in-circuit footage from the TVs located throughout hospitality, gourmet food buffets ranging from a sushi bar to tex-mex style fare and an open bar, what more could you ask for.
Ask our F1™ USGP Social Media Giveaway Winner about his experience. “I’m so blessed! Thank you QuintEvents for such an AMAZING experience! The most sought after seats… great food and hospitality… Alexander Rossi interview… what a weekend!!! I’m forever grateful!” – Michael Garay
- Who wins the race for another year in a row? Do you really have to guess?
Lewis Hamilton. Dominating Circuit of The Americas™ for a third year in-a-row and fifth time overall, Hamilton found victory in Austin. Setting a lap record in the practice rounds, he was beginning to set himself up for success. Although challenged a few times by former Mercedes teammate and F1 World Champion, Nico Rosberg, Hamilton secured the lead from the start of Turn 1 to the checkered finish. Hamilton was joined by Rosberg and Red Bull’s Daniel Riccardo on the podium to wrap up the F1™ USGP.
- Packed concerts with Taylor Swift & Usher and the Roots
Both choices for the weekend’s live entertainment saw massive amounts of crowds on the Saturday and Sunday night in Austin. Starting the weekend off right, the world’s biggest popstar took the stage for her only concert of 2016. Taylor Swift rocked the stage, performing a variety of her current hits to some of her classically known tunes. Grammy-winning, Texas born native, Usher took the stage with The Roots to close out a thrilling F1™ USGP weekend. The singer, songwriter, dancer and actor lit-up the stage with his timeless style Sunday night.
- Lunch with a Legend featuring Danny Sullivan
Most famously known for his 1985 Indy 500 “spin & win”, Danny Sullivan told stories of years’ past, both driving and personal. My personal favorite being one about racing rental cars through Austin with Paul McCartney… you’ll have to ask him about that if you ever meet him.
COTA Experiences Lunch with a Legend program is held the Friday of the race weekend and provides you the ability to have an up close and personal experience with a racing Legend. Your lunch will include gourmet fare and an open bar for your enjoyment. Absolutely something to put on your list for 2017!
- Paddock Club
Did you know that the Formula One Paddock Club™ is virtually the same no matter what race you attend? Our Paddock Club guests enjoyed premium vantage points of pit lane and the start and finish line, while enjoying fine dining and an open bar. Even a few celebrities stopped by!
