US 2014 Formula 1 Grand Prix in Austin - Rollcall

Who all is going to Austin for F1 this year?

I've been every year but this year I'm curious to see how things in Austin will be given that it's Halloween weekend. Halloween in Austin by itself attracts over 100k spectators so with F1 in town it could be quite a weekend.

I'll be there with my 10 yr. old son. His first F1 race. My 6th. Very excited for him.

It's a shame he probably won't be needing earplugs this year
My favorite part of the races was listening to the sounds! Still will be a phenomenal experience for him. My dad took me to a grand prix when I was 10 and from that point on I became the biggest car enthusiast.

Think there's a good chance you'll be pleased (or at least be entertained). We were. Here's my comment from the Canadian GP: "Good day at the track and the sound impresses. No, there's no scream, but we liked the tone, the turbos spinning, and some neat noises we weren't sure of (probably regenerative things going on)."

I would like to see Bottas on the podium. But also hoping for a Rosberg retirement.

I second the above. Sadly, no USGP or GP of the Americas for me this year. Montréal was enough (something about getting on a plane without even showing ID).

T19 suites, not a great location but the big screens and hospitality are solid.

is anyone going to the Fan Forum on Wed?

I think they are clearly trying to appeal to the Mexican crowd as Felipe, Sergio and Esteban are the drivers who will speaking at the Forum

Neither Caterham or Marussia at the USGP. Perhaps having the major teams field three cars is the way to go. At least there would be about six extra competitive cars on the track; ( well if the others can catch up with the Mercs!). lol

2nd F1 race missed last year....no ear phones for the 1st one was hard of hearing for a few hours....hoping for a Hamilton, Bottas, Massa on podium with a Rosburg retirement.

...Turn 11, 8 guys, 43 foot RV in parking lot F (look for it with blue neons, lol), rented a house in downtown, first stop after the suv rental is SPECS for some beverages,

It should be a bachelor type party weekend...maybe

Hoping to drive at COTA next year with and if Chin Motorsports puts it on the calender next year.

For some reason top rows of usual T12 were not available, even for presale.

I was at the Fan Forum and someone asked the drivers what their favorite street legal car is and Esteban Gutierrez said his favorite is the BMW M4...wow I was ecstatic when he said it!
