Buxton's BIG TIME Bash Presented by The Austin Grand Prix
Join The Austin Grand Prix on Thursday, October 22nd at rattle inn to kick off your grand prix weekend with Will Buxton, motorsports journalist and Formula 1 Pit Lane Reporter for NBC and NBC Sports Network.
Will Buxton will host a lively evening for fans: welcoming motorsport personalities, sharing stories and insight into the world of racing, and passing out exclusive racing memorabilia as coveted door prizes this year including memorabilia from Formula 1 teams and incredible and exclusive donations from Graham and Leigh, Paul Oz, Jamey Price Photography, and more.
For our fourth annual event, we invite you to come enjoy the sights and sounds of Austin from one of the hippest rooftop patios on West 6th Street: Rattle Inn. This intimate, split-level venue has a little bit of something for everyone, with a side of Texas-kitsch to boot. Doors open at 7:00pm, and make sure you're there early as the first special guests are due on stage at 7:30pm.
With Buxton on the mic, you never know who will drop by. In fact (humble brag), who remembers the call he took on stage from the one and only Mario Andretti before he stopped by and graced the stage? This year, a number of active F1 drivers have already confirmed their attendance.
Our always-entertaining, fan-oriented fundraising event benefits Meals on Wheels and More of Austin AND Justin Wilson's Children's Fund this year, so we are collecting a $10-$20 suggested donation at the door, however if you're feeling generous you can donate however much you wish. Will and his crew put the $23,547.35 that YOU helped raise to work last year by delivering meals to clients on our weekly delivery route the Monday after the race! Over the past three years we have raised over $40,000 and every cent has gone to charity.
We can't wait to see you at Rattle Inn to kick off Formula One racing's fourth United States Grand Prix in Austin this October!
*PRO TIP* Use the hashtags #BBBASH and #COMEANDRACEIT to keep up with the social conversation!
