Default Pics of an exotic F1 watch-party/meet here in Austin, TX

This is a Formula 1 watch party held every week, by Hill Country Drives, I attended for some pics and F1 action.

We're all very excited in Austin for this event to be held here.

I kept ~140 photos for everyone to see. A few of my favs below

Link to all of the pics - http://www.autodrenaline.com/forum/v...php?f=39&t=365



















Anyway, a lot more exotics at the link above.

I hope you all enjoy and are as excited about F1 in Austin as we are.

I love all the vipers, the ford gt, and the mustang. Stealth R/T's make me want to punch babies. Mainly because I have spend hours under the hood of one.

Oh great, more Austin crew. What lap record do you hold? I ask because just about anyone I've ever met from Austin holds a lap record in some capacity, somewhere and certainly is the fastest guy on the track that day.

That Ford GT is pure sex, I think an Enzo is the biggest waste of money, aren't the oil changes several thousand dollars?

We all know what is under the hoods of these exotics. Anything else is icing on the cake. And it wasn't the sit-outside-and-talk-cars-all-day type of meet. Everyone parked, chat for 10 minutes, then went inside the cafe to view the Belgium F1 event, have lunch, and swap stories.

And yes, that Ford GT was absolutely a focal point of the event.

What is the burgundy car with the A insignia on it's front badge? I'm somewhat worldly but don't recognize it. It looks like it has French tags on it.
