Saturday, Oct. 20 - Wild Bubba’s Octoberfest, co-sponsored by AustinRaceEvents.com, was a celebration of the upcoming inaugural US Grand Prix to take place just one mile from Wild Bubba’s Wild Game Grill. We were joined by many local motorsports enthusiasts in addition to local, small businesses who are taking part in Formula 1 tourism. Speed TV personality Bob Varsha came in to chat with Wild Bubba himself, tour the restaurant’s “Tilke Beer Garden,” and meet with starry-eyed party guests who have been watching Mr. Varsha call every F1 race for the past few years. Later, two team members from Sky Sports F1, which provides F1 coverage to viewers in the UK, came to document our Octoberfest. In addition to interviewing many of our guests (including Austin American-Statesman F1 reporter Dave Doolittle and Austin Race Events founder Danielle Crespo), the crew was kind enough to stay at the event into the evening. Ladies from F1Nightly.com posed with guests while Mary, our “Beer Girl,” served dozens of beers to a willing group of local IT employees. Johnny Tequila provided a rockabilly music backdrop to the Octoberfest and guests – check out the photos below!
