The Jetset tour bus cruised into the Circuit of The Americas just outside of Austin on Thursday for the first American Grand Prix and was treated to a racing spectacle never before seen in North America.
From the trackside hospitality suite between turns 19 and 20 the view was incredible.
Attendance at the Circuit of The Americas topped 265,000 for the three day event with thousands more attending Fanfest in downtown Austin. This event also had Porsche GT3 Cup cars and Ferarri 458 challenge cars also running races as well as vintage F1 cars prior to the Grand Prix on Sunday. Outside of the CoTA venue itself, Jetset hosted the American Legacy in Formula 1 book launch on Thurday night at the historic Driskill Hotel. On hand were racing legends Mario Andretti and Bob Bondurant. The room was awash in Formula 1 memorabilia including classic vintage photographs of iconic moments in Formula 1 history.
My Yacht F1 hosted VIP parties on Friday, Saturday and Sunday transforming the Austin Ballet into a swank nightclub complete with gold flake Champagne, Patron and a 2007 Martinelli Zio Tony Syarh and the usual crowd of celebrities. Sunday night featured a number of F1 drivers mixing with guests.
