I’m planning my best friend’s bachelor party, and it is most likely going to be in Austin on GP weekend 2018. Both he and I have been to F1 at COTA, but neither of us have been to any motorcycle race. So what can I expect?
I’m assuming a smaller crowd than F1, but I’m trying to gauge how much time we will need/want to spend at the track. I would estimate that about 1/3 of the attendees of the bachelor party are gear-heads or otherwise enthused by fast things. The other 2/3 has nothing against fast things, but won’t want to spend an entire day/multiple days at the track, and will mainly be there for the drinking/debauchery.
While we could separate as Austin is a super cool city, I’d like to keep us together as much as possible to maximize fun/involvement. At the moment I’m thinking race day only (Sunday?) and suggesting that everyone go to the race.
Planning on getting an AirBnB for 15 or so.
How much are GP tix (ballpark)?
Where would you sit want to sit? Turn 1?
Activities outside of COTA? We had no trouble getting into trouble when we went to F1, but I’m open to suggestions.
Favorite restaurants in Austin?
