2018 US Grand Prix with the Ferrari Club of America

October 19 – 21

And what a weekend it will be! Ferrari has the best chance in years to take home top honors, and what better way to celebrate than being there for all of the festivities.  So make your reservations today because everything is limited and you don’t want to miss any of the action.

FCA Formula 1 Reception –

The FCA Formula 1 Reception is a special evening filled with beautiful cars, great people, international guests, press, great food, and some very special entertainment for you. The party kicks off Friday evening, October 19, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. with cocktails and entertainment at Austin Country Club.  A seated dinner is served at 8:00 p.m., followed by a real treat – 2-time Grammy Award winner, 4-time Hall of Fame inductee, and 100% Texan, fiddle player Jason Roberts and his band! Jason has been entertaining audiences for decades, having toured for 20 years with the multi-Grammy winning band, Asleep at the Wheel, as well as Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Ray Price, and numerous others. He has performed at the White House, on the David Letterman Show, and even the Kennedy Center.

There will be a stunning display of rare and unique Ferrari automobiles covering decades of the marque on display at the beautiful Austin Country Club located at 4408 Long Champ Dr, Austin, TX 78746.  Attendees are encouraged to bring your Ferrari. We have security on site.

The event is business casual, however, Texas tux (that's jeans and boots with a tux shirt and coat) is definitely appropriate!  With Jason’s style of Western Swing, you are probably going to want to take a tour around the dance floor so the ladies might want to wear shoes (or boots) they can dance in.

Seating is limited and the event has sold out every year so don't wait to make your reservations. This is an FCA function so if you are not currently a member, join at www.ferrariclubofamerica.org.

FCA Hotel Accommodations –

This year we have reserved a large block of rooms at the Sheraton Downtown. As an FCA member, we have negotiated a rate that is roughly $100/night less than other downtown hotels that weekend.  From here there is easy access to the track as well as walking distance to the fabulous downtown entertainment scene.  East Sixth Street is the most famous of Austin entertainment areas, however, a couple more blocks and you can be on Rainey Street. You will find every kind of music, food, beverages you have never heard of, speakeasies, magicians, and dancing.  And this isn’t just for Formula 1 – this is any night in Austin, Texas.

You will need to book the rooms through the links below to get the discount.  Last year we sold out the block, extended it, and even sold that out so don’t delay making your reservations.

USGP Race Tickets –

Because of you, the Ferrari Club of America is the largest automotive club that attends the USGP.  As a result, this year we have a very special option in addition to seats on Turns 12 and 15.  We have our own Ferrari Club of America Skybox at Turn 13!

The tickets at Turn 12 are at the top of the grandstand at the end of the back straight. Great visibility over the fence of turns 11-16 as well as turns 4-7.  This is where most of the overtaking takes place during the race as the cars are coming at you at over 200 mph.

The tickets at Turn 15 are in the middle section of the grandstand and also have great visibility with most of the action on turns 12-16 right in front of you.

The Skybox is located at Turn 13 which is elevated so you can see the cars coming out of Turn 12 and working through the complex set of turns through 16. Skybox seating includes all food and beverages. Seating is very limited.

For tickets at Turns 12 or 15, click on the link below:
