This October will see the Formula 1 World Championship roll into Austin for the fourth annual United States Grand Prix to be held at the state-of-the-art Circuit of the Americas… and you could be there meeting and greeting the legend that is Mika Hakkinen.
For the 2015 edition of the only grand prix to be held in the United States, the Circuit of the Americas is offering the chance to bring fans closer than ever to the sport with a series of exclusive travel and experience packages.
Teaming up with QuintEvents of Charlotte, F1 and Circuit of the Americas presents unique and memorable packages to individuals and groups, fan clubs and businesses, enhancing an already enthralling experience into a once-in-a-lifetime one.
The programme includes multiple seating options, four-night hotel stays, three-day transportation shuttles and all-inclusive on-site hospitality, all of the highest quality.
What makes this experience so unique, however, is the meet-and-greet opportunities with former F1 champion Mika Hakkinen, plus GP2 title challenger Alexander Rossi and Ferrari reserve driver Esteban Gutierrez.
In addition, you can have 'Lunch with a Legend' alongside Mika Hakkinen, coming with gourmet food and drink, as well as complimentary beer, wine and champagne, plus a Q&A session with the 1998 and 1999 champion, while Rossi and Gutierrez will be available for meet and greets throughout the race weekend.
“Last year when I was interacting with fans in Austin I got to meet people from all around the world,” said Rossi, who is tipped as a potential driver with the incoming Haas F1 team in 2016. “We had an opportunity to discuss different viewpoints of the sport and different understandings, which is very interesting to me.
“For the fans, it's good to meet the drivers but also it works the other way around. The drivers get to meet the fans and get the feedback on what the sport is about for them. It was something that was very, very cool for me and I think the fans enjoyed it too. It gave me a new appreciation for the sport in the different parts of the globe."
“QuintEvents is fantastic when it comes to sports entertainment and hospitality. I've had the privilege of working with the QuintEvents team in the past and I'm delighted to be involved with them again for The Legends Club event in Austin this year, presented by Circuit of The Americas Experiences.”
“As the only American driver involved in Formula 1, I'm honored to support the US Grand Prix. The fan support behind this event has already proved to be enormous for everyone involved and this is really good for Formula 1 and its growth in my home country.”
“The QuintEvents Circuit of The Americas Legends Club is a great way for me to connect with motorsport fans throughout the world, and closer to home where the passion for Formula 1 is growing and developing year on year.”
Packages are available at a variety of price levels to suit your budget and can be customised to fit the needs of any race fan. Prices range between $999 - $7,499.
