Austin GP

Post by texasmr2 »

So I am curious if any members will be attending? I have signed up as a volunteer directing people to the appropriate seating area's within and around the track. Originaly I had planned on a GA ticket but they soldout like a lightening bolt but it will be fun and will not cost me anything.

Regards,
Gregg

Where there is a will there is a way. I have several friends here in Houston who have been to numerous GP's but they asked me to join them as a volunteer. Also they have all the hookup's for the parties :wink: .

I'd love to, but I'm afraid that money is a problem as it is for any other race. :(

If you wanna buy me a ticket, though... :wink:

Good stuff, hope it's not all work and you get the chance to take in some of the racing.

when they are in they are in so you get to watch the race. I used to do some security work at Silverstone for the same reason.

I wanted to go; but sadly money and (lack of) time means that I can't attend this year, hopefully I can make it happen next year!

You need to do more research.

I thought I did pretty well but leave it to an American circuit to have to "think" about what fans can and can't bring into a circuit. I hope you enjoy the day there, some day I may go, but Montreal is a lot closer to me and next year's NJ GP may be the capper.

If I had the money to attend all these Grands Prix, the world would be a fine place.

There you go brother and sorry as my post came off like an asshat. What I should have said was that I'll get back to you :) .

I hear everyone about being able to afford the tickets as I cannot so I thought what thre heck I'll just volunteer. I'll have free room and board at a longtime friends house who lives in Austin and I also have a friend who manages a few large ranches in the area and I could campout aswell. One of the properties has water/electricty hookups for those who are RV'ing it and even a heli-pad.

You got that right brother. :wink:
