F1 in Austin -- who is going ?

F1 is coming to Austin on November 16-18th! Who from the Texas group is coming to the race and where will you guys be sitting? I plan on going with a few folks but we can't figure out what turn we plan to sit at. Either way hope to see some of you folks there and hopefully we can have a mini lotus meet-up prior to the race.

I do plan on going with a group of friends from here in OKC.

I'll be taking my Evora down.

I'm going with my wife all the way from NYC! Managed to get Grandstand 11 West in the recent round of ticket sales. Hope to meet some Lotus owners...can't take the Elise though!

Got seats at 12 where I expect most of the passes to be completed thanks to DRS. Going with my buddies from work who are fellow F1 nuts.

I hope the track turns out great!

Anyone have any extra General Admission tickets

Just decided I want to go to the race, but see the general admission tickets are sold out. Anyone have two extras?

I'm taking my Dad and we'll be there for the entire weekend. Hotels in or near Austin? HA! Good luck. Even over a month ago when I bought our tickets (Grandstand 7), the hotels were either sold out or exorbitantly priced.

I ended up getting a good deal on a hotel and rental car in San Antonio. You guys might want to consider doing the same if you're still looking. It's not that far of a drive and it'll save you a ton of $.

What does everyone think of setting up a lunch or dinner for all of us at some point in that weekend. It'd be great to put some faces with usernames. Perhaps one of you that are local can recommend a place or we can meet at the track?

Looks like I'll be working but if I'm not would be interested in a mini lotus meet-up. I'm only 2 hours away. Let everyone know when y'all pick a spot to meet.

"Sadly"? You're not a fan of F1 so you can't be too sad. On the other hand, as a local you'd be the perfect guy to help in organizing a Loti get-together at a local restaurant! Is there a PapaSittos close to the track?
