For those heading to Austin for the United States Grand Prix two of the biggest local promoters have joined forces for an evening nobody will want to miss.
Formula Austin is hosting the second annual 'The Best of Texas' race weekend concert and for 2013 welcomes the Best of GREAT Britain to the Lone Star State on Friday, Nov. 15.
Texas and the UK share a special relationship that runs deep. The UK is the largest foreign investor in the state and Texas ranks first among states importing products from the UK. "A partnership with the British Consulate for our race weekend event was a natural decision, given the UK's dominance in Formula One and the long-standing relationship between Texas and GREAT Britain," said Anne Fish, Co-Founder of Formula Austin. "Fans won't want to miss this chance to experience all that Texas has to offer, with a British twist."
Voted one of the 'Top 10 Formula 1 Parties' by CultureMap in 2012, 'The Best of Texas' is set to be even more exciting than last year. The lineup will include legendary Texas performers Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel, Robert Earl Keen, Marcia Ball, Rick Trevino and Carolyn Wonderland.
"Formula Austin put on a First Class show from start to finish!" said Sandy West, 2012 director of the Circuit of the Americas Host Committee about last year's event. "We mingled with the musicians and F1 VIPs and danced to 'The Best of Texas' music once the show began."
While the "The Best of Texas" concert runs from 8 to 10 pm, this is followed by the "after-party" which is being hosted by Formula VIP Events at the W Hotel. The Austin City Limits Moody Theater, where the "The Best of Texas" concert is being held, is in the same block as the W Hotel, so guests can walk from the concert to the after-party!
