Thank you, thank you, thank you!

As Thanksgiving approaches, we wanted to take a moment and thank all of our event partners, clients, and friends for coming together and welcoming the world to Austin last weekend for our first Formula 1 US Grand Prix weekend! It was an exciting weekend, and we’re proud to have been a part of 8 different events from November 16-18 alone.

It’s no secret that Red Velvet Events loves Austin, and the brand-new, state-of-the-art Circuit of the Americas is just one more reason to love this town. We were impressed and delighted by the gorgeous facility, and are so looking forward to hosting more groups there and showing it off.

As we look to the 2013 F1 event, here’s our biggest wish list for that weekend:

More Downtown Crowds.

Fan Fest and the other downtown events were so much fun that we wished even more people had participated. We’d love to see people wandering around, a la SXSW, just taking everything in and having a great time.

More Affordable Parking.

While the race itself is very exclusive, we’d hate to see people avoiding downtown events simply because they couldn’t afford to park there. Hopefully there can be a few affordable options to this issue next year.

Now that Austin has experienced its first F1 and the event went off without a hitch, we are even more excited about the next US Grand Prix. Here’s to an amazing weekend, and to a bright future for F1 in Austin!
