FORMULA 1 Special Edition



FORMULA 1 Special Edition

tory of Formula 1 in the United States, a world-class facility will be purpose-built to host the event,” adding that the Austin circuit would be the first constructed from the ground up specifically for Formula One in the United States. The Formula 1 United States Grand Prix™ was last held on a purpose-built permanent road course circuit in Watkins Glen, NY more than thirty years ago (1961-1980), where the sport enjoyed great success. Since then, Formula 1 has been hosted by Long Beach, Las Vegas, Detroit, Dallas and Phoenix, all on temporary street circuits. Indianapolis joined the ranks of host cities from 2000 to 2007 inside the famed oval of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Today, Austin, Texas is welcoming the high-speed motorsports racing world to the Lone Star State. Austin is geographically located near the epicenter of North America and is itself the result of the same combination of elements that make a F1 winner: a lot of skill, a terrific amount of hard work and little luck. Thanks to its devotion to live music, technology industry and Texas culture, the city has earned a reputation as one of the coolest in the U.S. Its commitment to the environment and its love of fine dining and world-renowned hospitality, along with an international airport located less than 10 miles from the track, make it ideally suited to host and manage a Grand Prix event.

n November 18, 2012, at approximately 1:00pm local time, Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile Race Director Charlie Whiting will press a button located on his viewing stand above the Circuit of The Americas track to light up a set of five red lights. The lights will illuminate one at a time, left to right, in one-second intervals, and then go out simultaneously between four and seven seconds later. When the lights go out, the United States Grand Prix (USGP) will burst to life, and for 56 laps, the fastest, most powerful automobiles in the world and their pilots will rage against one another at speeds nearing 200 miles per hour in a high-octane, adrenaline pumping fight for the checker flag. Winning a Formula 1™ race on the track requires a mind-boggling combination of brilliant management, engineering prowess, gutsy driving, a talented support team and a small measure of opportunity and good luck. The same combination made Circuit of The Americas and the United States Grand Prix possible. The Formula 1 race returns to the United States after a thirty year hiatus officially began on May 25, 2010 when Bernie Ecclestone, President and CEO of Formula One Management, and a team of collaborators made the announcement at a press conference in Austin, Texas. Mr. Ecclestone said at the time, “For the first time in the his-

Austin-based The Bommarito Group designed the suites at the track.

The visibility and prestige of Formula 1 will spotlight Texas culture and Austin chic to an international audience during race festival weekend. Prior to the race, the scene setters and race fans will enjoy Austin’s awesome nightlife and vibrant downtown atmosphere. The main event, though, is the Grand Prix race at Circuit of The Americas. Circuit of The Americas is more than the only purpose-built facility in the U.S. to host the USGP. The $300 million venue is a top-to-bottom entertainment destination, featuring world-class auto racing throughout the year, including V8 Supercars, MotoGP and LeMans series racing. The Circuit attracts these race series because it is the only FIA-certified Grade 1 track in the United States and one of only 26 Grade 1-certified motorsports facilities in the world. The nerve center of the track is a three-level, 270,000-square-foot pit building to serve as team garages, meeting rooms and hospitality areas. If you’re lucky enough to be in the main grandstand seats with about 9,000 of your closest friends, you’ll see the red lights go black and cover your ears as the cars leap off the starting grid to blaze up to Turn 1, 133-feet above the start line. The 20-turn race course runs counter-clockwise—one of only three F1 courses in the world to do so—and as the drivers negotiate turn 20 and come toward the start/ finish line, hold onto to your hat because they’ll be moving well over 160 miles per hour.

Up to 120,000 other fans will be enjoying the race with you as they stage themselves in stands around the 3.4-mile track. Turn 15 at Circuit of The Americas marks the third turn in a series, echoing Germany’s Hockenheim circuit stadium section. Turn 16 begins another sequence of three corners mirroring the famous and somewhat notorious Turn 8 at Istanbul Park, nicknamed “Diabolica.” The Turn 15-16 section of the track will be most appealing to fans who love to see overtaking and change of direction at maximum speeds. In these turns, car setups, along with tire strategy, will be most tested while drivers will experience lateral force of between 4g and 5g. Smile for the cameras as you enjoy race weekend. Your friends around the world may see you as each race and its three hours of coverage is broadcast to over 30 million viewers. Wear your race gear too. Veteran F1 fans don the colors of their favorite team and drivers. When the race is over, the party begins. The most prominent feature at Circuit of The Americas is the 251-foot observation tower serving as the stunning backdrop to a 15,000 seat open-air amphitheater, where the world’s greatest touring musical acts are destined to play. This is vintage Austin—the world’s greatest music, the world’s best barbeque and Tex-Mex food, world-class racing and a welcoming hospitality only a state as big as Texas can offer. Just the right combination of things to get your engine revved up!

“For the first time in the history of Formula 1 in the United States, a worldclass facility will be purpose-built to host the event”

When you've had all the BBQ and comfort food you can handle, head to this sweet Italian cafe and eat outside. While dining al fresco, you can enjoy some South Congress people-watching and counterbalance your healthy salad with the best calamari on earth. After lunch, walk across Congress to one of our town's best boutiques, STAG (1423 South

STAG offers everything from vintage flannels to hip, one-of-a-kind screen printed T's, funky leather wallets and cool pocketknives. STAG awakens the manly-man inside every dude, who also makes sure he looks top-notch! This place is an Austin original!

Boots, BBQ & Bourbon

Boots Heritage Boot


On the corner of South Congress and Nellie Street, you’ll find a vintage-inspired brick storefront crowned with a neon boot. Home to Heritage Boot (1200 S. Congress Ave.), the intimate shop is lined with boots of all shapes and sizes, from the hand-laced, hand-tooled Bandido to the richly colored Black Cherry. In each of his distinctive designs, owner Jerry Ryan recalls the golden age of bootmaking, drawing inspiration from the 1930s to 1960s. A store favorite, for example, is the Rio Bravo, featuring chocolate and camel-colored calfskin with wingtip foxing and variegated stitching—a true testament to timeless, Western style.

It doesn’t get any more quintessentially Austin than boots and trailers. After a crosscountry tour last month, Bootleg (1318 S. Congress Ave.) returns home to Austin with a sleek airstream full of beautifully crafted footwear. Though the shop is only 28 feet long, owner and stylist Sarah Ellison Lewis has stocked her corner of South Congress with an exquisitely curated collection of shoes, many of them discovered over the course of her travels. Alongside oxfords by Jil Sander Navy and towering heels by JD Fisk, Lewis’ selection of boots—wedges, ankle boots, knee-highs and more—offers a stylish take on the Texas staple.

Texas Custom Boots

Allens Boots

Since it opened its doors in 1980, Texas Custom Boots (1601 S. 1st St.) has become synonymous with expert leather craftsmanship. Founded by Alberto Lozano, Bill Hood and Carlos Hernandez—formerly a master bootmaker at the renowned Lucchese in San Antonio—the company both restores and handcrafts custom-made boots, bringing Western wear into the modern era. Owner Noel Escobar continues the bootmaking tradition with careful workmanship and the finest materials, including calfskin and exotic leathers. Working with clients over the yearlong custom process, Texas Custom Boots personalizes elements like heel type, toe styles, and height to create a one-of-a-kind boot.

A family-run Austin institution since 1977, Allens Boots (1522 S. Congress Ave.) celebrates the romanticism of the Western boot. In addition to an array of cowboy hats, clothing and accessories, Allens boasts a collection of over 4000 boots by a dozen celebrated makers, such as Lucchese, Justin Boots and Old Gringo. Among Allens’ extensive offerings, shoppers can find a shoe for every wardrobe, from an elegant bullhide boot by Tony Lama to a studded Leigh Anne by Old Gringo or a game day-worthy boot emblazoned with a UT longhorn. Each boot, whether ornately designed or classically crafted, is a purchase for a lifetime.

Franklin Barbecue

JMueller BBQ

Before he opened his first food trailer three years ago, Aaron Franklin hosted biannual barbecues in his backyard. When his neighbors began lining up along the street, however, he realized he was onto something. Today, if you ask an Austinite for the best barbecue, there’s a good chance he or she will point you in the direction of Franklin Barbecue (900 E. 11th St.), Franklin’s brick and mortar East Side eatery, recognized by Bon Appétit as the “Best BBQ Restaurant in America.” The devotees who queue up early in the morning for Franklin’s oak-smoked brisket and ribs seem to agree.

The art of barbecue runs in John Mueller’s blood. After training under his father and famed pitmaster, Bobby, for a quarter of a century, Mueller brought his family’s culinary legacy to Austin, where he opened his first barbecue joint and, incidentally, gave Aaron Franklin his start. Following the closure of his original location, Mueller opened JMueller BBQ (1502 S. 1st St.), a nondescript trailer on South First. With its no-frills menu of brisket, handmade beef sausage, short ribs and more, JMueller has become a favorite in the city’s food trailer scene. Be sure to stop by on Fridays, when Mueller smokes up rare and juicy prime rib.

Stiles Switch BBQ & Brew

The Salt Lick

Tucked away in the historic Violet Crown Shopping Center, Stiles Switch BBQ & Brew (6610 N. Lamar Blvd.) pays homage to the barbecue legends of Texas with its inviting, nostalgic atmosphere. Owner Shane Stiles and pitmaster Lance Kirkpatrick, formerly of Louie Mueller Barbecue, serve up rich, slow-smoked brisket, turkey breast, ribs, pork loin and sausages, paired with a thoughtful selection of craft brews on tap from local and regional breweries. This Central Austin eatery is the perfect place to pull up a chair, a pitcher of beer and a heavy plate of brisket while you savor the city.

At the heart of The Salt Lick (18300 FM Rd. 1826) is owner Scott Roberts’ sprawling pit, glowing with hot coals and laden with mouthwatering barbecue well worth the drive north to Driftwood. The restaurant traces its roots as far back as the mid-19th century, when one of Roberts’ ancestors seared and slow cooked barbecue along her trip by wagon train to Texas. It’s the same technique Roberts uses today, as he caramelizes his barbecue’s aromatic seasoning over the open pit. Whether you enjoy the restaurant’s hearty fare by the plate or all-you-can-eat family style, The Salt Lick offers a bold taste of the Hill Country.

FORMULA 1 Special Edition

Clockwise from top left: The secret’s out about Franklin’s Barbecue—and the eatery’s “Sold Out” sign has become an unlikely Austin icon. For a cozy, neighborhood experience, take a seat at Stiles Switch BBQ & Brew. In the restaurant’s comfortable, nostalgic atmosphere, owner Shane Stiles takes his cues from the barbecue kings of Texas.

Bourbon + Late Night Snacks Bar Congress Let barkeep Jason Stevens mix you up a Royal Roulette, made of Campari, Cremé de Violette, Hibiscus, Lemon, Creole Bitters and La Dama Cava, or try the Sitting in Limbo, made of Vienna Dry Gin, Strega and Grapefruit. Whatever your beverage of choice, you won’t be disappointed by a single sip at Bar Congress (200 Congress Ave.) The intimate Bar is nestled between its fine dining older brother Congress and the more casual Second Bar + Kitchen. Open from 5pm to midnight.

Justine’s Brasserie The lights are dim and the music is always just right in this cozy French bistro in East Austin, but it’s the delicious food and serious cocktails that are the real highlights of Justine’s Brasserie (4710 East 5th St.) Sit at the bar or outside underneath the strings of lights while noshing on steak tartare or ratatouille and sipping a beautifully concocted classic side car. Open from 6pm to 2am.

Fino Slip away from the busy downtown area in to the more subdued Fino (2905 San Gabriel St.), just west of the UT campus off Lamar Boulevard. You know the cocktails are going to be good when the beautiful bar holds

Barley Swine court right in the center of the restaurant. Try the Missionary Trail, which consists of El Jimador Tequila Reposado, Averna Amaro, Benedictine, Dolin Dry Vermouth and Mole Bitters. It will pair wonderfully with something from Fino’s “modern Mediterranean” menu. Open from 5pm to 11pm.

Easy Tiger Bar snacks have never tasted as good as they do at Easy Tiger (709 East Sixth Street), a bake shop and beer garden on the East end of Austin’s bustling and sometimes infamous Sixth Street. The breads, pretzels, sausages and corned beef are all made in house and the spirits list is a beer lovers dream in this unique and much needed addition to downtown Austin. Open from 11am-2am.

La Condesa Inspired by the vibrant flavors of Mexican street food, La Condesa (400A West 2nd St.) seems to do it all brilliantly, whether it’s lunch, dinner, dessert or brunch. Tequila is king, but the knowledgeable bar staff knows how to use everything from its impressive bar. One of the best selections of Mezcals in town. On weekends, head upstairs to Malverde for more of their masterly crafted cocktails and DJs spinning until 2am. Open from 5pm to 11pm.

Arrive early or you can forget about scoring a table to sit at this first come, first serve, 42seat and much sought-after hot spot, Barley Swine (2024 S. Lamar Blvd). Lead by one of Austin’s most exciting young chefs and one of Food & Wine’s “Best New Chefs,” Bryce Gilmore, the menu consists of small plates like those the swine name implies, from pulled pig face to crispy stuffed pig ankle, and even the most non-adventurous foodies will be asking for seconds. It may be beer and wine only, but the curated list will impress even the most seasoned of beverage lovers. Open from 5pm to 11pm.

W Austin Since opening in 2010, the W Austin (200 Lavaca St.) has been a lively addition to Austin’s nightlife scene. From the sexy secret bar to the more subdued living room area, count on fun people watching to an energetic soundtrack from every seat in the house. The W has created a special cocktail menu for Formula 1, with drinks named for famous turns and tracks around the world like the Turn 24, Valencia Street Circuit, Valencia, Spain, the Curva Grande, Monza, Italy and, of course Turn 1, CoTA, Austin, TX.

80 miles WEST of Austin, a storied past and vibrant culture make Fredericksburg an unforgettable getaway.


estled in the rich landscape of the Texas Hill Country, Fredericksburg is a sleepy town steeped in its 19thcentury German heritage. Time seems to pass a little slower here, with its characteristic warmth and old Texas atmosphere. Whether you’re looking for an authentic schnitzel or handcrafted home furnishings, an adventure atop Enchanted Rock or a cozy bed and breakfast, Fredericksburg offers a perfect weekend getaway.

Where to Dine Founded in 1846 by Baron Otfried Hans von Meuscbach of Prussia, Fredericksburg has loyally clung to its German roots. Today, visitors can still savor authentic cuisine from east of the Rhine at notable eateries like Old German Bakery & Restaurant (225 W. Main St.) and the Altdorf Biergarten (301 W. Main St.). In addition to its flourishing German cuisine, Fredericksburg boasts a number of dynamic new eateries, founded by restaurateurs drawn to the town’s quiet charm. Artist Richard Boprae and Chef Jordan Muraglia, for example, opened Vaudeville (230 E. Main St.) last spring, a three-story concept featuring an art gallery, a home décor retail space and a French-inspired bistro downstairs. Serving classic cuisine, from creamy butternut squash bisque to braised pork belly, Vaudeville creates an indulgent dining experience in a comfortable atmosphere. “It’s a current point of view on the Hill Country,” Boprae notes. One block from Main Street, August E’s (203 E. San Antonio St.) transports diners around the world with its artfully crafted dishes and the restaurant’s famous “Thai Tuesdays,” featuring the cuisine of Chef Leu Savanh’s home country. Though August E’s takes cues from Europe and Asia, Chef Savanh’s wife and co-owner, Dawn, describes the restaurant’s culinary aesthetic as Nouveau Texas Cuisine: “We pride ourselves in sourcing the best Texas offers [and] preparing simply to let the quality of the food shine,” she says. A short drive north of Fredericksburg, former Asleep at the Wheel guitarist Johnny Nicholas and his wife, Brenda, serve up a thoughtful menu of Greek, Cajun and Texan cuisine at Hill Top Café (10661 US 87). In their eclectic roadhouse-turned-restaurant, the Nicholases carefully craft each dish—a local favorite is The Greek’s Special Tenderloin, marinated with fresh garlic and cracked pepper—with ingredients sourced from local purveyors and the restaurant’s own gardens. “We focus on farm to market food—we always have,” says Nicholas. “It’s getting trendy now, but we’ve been doing it for 30 years.”

Where to Shop On the first Friday of each month, some of Fredericksburg’s finest art galleries open their doors late into the evening, inviting visitors in for a glass of wine and artwork. As you stroll the downtown square, be sure to stop by Whistle Pik Galleries (425 E. Main St.), which features original paintings and bronzes from across the country. Nearby, InSight Gallery (214 W.

FORMULA 1 Special Edition

Where to Nightlife Autumn nights in Fredericksburg recall the golden age of honkytonk. When the sun begins to set, Luckenbach (412 Luckenbach Town Lp.), a town just south of Fredericksburg, lights up its famous dance hall, as revelers dance the night away to live country, blues and swing music—all with a Texas twang. “[Luckenbach] is a small town where everybody’s somebody,” says Event Manager Abbey Road. For live music in Fredericksburg’s downtown district, Hondo’s (312 W. Main St.) is a local institution not to be missed. Along with an unfussy menu of burgers, sandwiches, Tex-Mex and bar food, Hondo’s draws regional musicians nearly every night, from the Wednesday Songwriter’s Showcase to the Sunday Gospel brunch. End with a nightcap at one of Fredericksburg’s favorite watering holes, such as the Fredericksburg Brewing Company (245 E. Main St.). Part bed and breakfast, restaurant and beer garden, the brewery greets visitors with sparkling copper tanks, which produce up to 7,5000 gallons of lager and ale brewed in the classic, German tradition.

portunity came about to open a gallery in Fredericksburg,” Plesko says, “we knew that it was the perfect fit.” Together, the Pleskos continue to offer visitors compelling and diverse perspectives on American life. The historic downtown square is also home to clothing boutiques with Fredericksburg’s causal, yet elegant sensibilities. At ROOT Fashion and Aura (306 E. Main St.) guests can explore owner Cassell Heep’s array of contemporary clothing, footwear, jewelry and home accessories. A few blocks down, Bob and Mary Ann Turbeville of Hill Country Outfitters (115 E. Main St.) bring classic, fashionable garments to Fredericksburg with an extensive shoe collection and a variety of lines, including Michael Kors and UK-based Barbour. As the store celebrates 15 years of business, Mary Ann Turbeville notes, “Our customers are like family to us. We want them to have a remarkable shopping experience.”

past 11,000 years and remains one of the most striking attractions in the area. A pink granite exfoliation dome standing at 425 feet, Enchanted Rock offers ample opportunity for hiking, backpacking and picnicking during the day, while guests can return in the evening for a breathtaking view of the sunset and stargazing under the night sky. East of Enchanted Rock, Willow City Loop unfolds into 13 miles of country road, flanked by wildflowers and mesquite trees. Winding through picturesque hills and deep canyons, the Loop is a quiet tribute to the region’s natural beauty. Closer to the city, Wildseed Farms (100 Legacy Dr.) sprawls over 200 acres, where visitors can lose themselves amidst the fields of wildflowers. In addition to butterfly and beer gardens, visitors can pick a fresh bouquet or purchase wildflower seed of their own, bringing home a taste of the Hill Country.

Clockwise from top left: If you’re feeling adventurous, a hike to the top of Enchanted Rock is a must. After exploring the acres of wildflowers at Wildseed Farms, head down to Luckenbach for a night in the old dance hall or end with a nightcap at the Fredericksburg Brewing Company.

Where to Stay

After a beautiful day in the Hill Country, Fredericksburg’s bed and breakfasts welcome guests to an intimate home away from home. On Main Street, The Roadrunner Inn (306-B E. Main St.) spans only three bright and stylishly furnished rooms, just steps away from downtown’s lively activity. By contrast, Angel’s Lodge (415 E. Austin St.) is a secluded haven, overlooking Town Creek. With rustic undertones and over an acre of surrounding woods, the lodge provides a luxurious getaway from the city. A hint of old Texas still lingers in Fredericksburg, especially at Settlers Crossing (104 Settlers Crossing Rd.), whose seven historic guest houses, outfitted with fireplaces and centuries-old antiques, take visitors back in time. Recently named one of the country’s top 10 bed and breakfasts by Travel & Leisure, Settlers Crossing sprawls over 35 acres, lovingly tended by owners David and Melissa Estes. “We want to give people an experience of what it was like to live between 1800 and 1850,” says David Estes. “I hope our guests leave with a sense of peaceful serenity.”


FORMULA 1 Special Edition

Voted best bed and breakfast by Travel & Leisure, Settlers Crossing invites guests to relax in one of seven beautifully furnished guest houses.

The charming Keidel Inn & Gasthaus takes inspiration from the city’s 19th-century heritage.

Lake Travis Throughout the day, Lake Travis is an inviting getaway close to home, but at sunset, it is simply stunning. Perched on a cliff with a panoramic view, Oasis Texas (6612 Comanche Trl.) is a memorable way to experience the lake and surrounding Hill Country. With its eclectic combination of distinctly Austin shops, such as Crawshay Gallery and Zoltan David, and restaurants like Soleil and the eponymous Oasis at Lake Travis, Oasis Texas is a slice of Austin without the city bustle. Be sure to stroll along the Plank, a glass-enclosed walkway, as the sun begins to dip over Lake Travis. Afterward, unwind and rejuvenate at Travaasa (13500 FM Rd. 2769), an unparalleled destination hotel in the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve. From its world-class spa to a zipline across the nature preserve, exceptional cuisine to restorative meditation classes, Travaasa is a holistic experience that co-owners Joy Berry and Chris Manning hope will impart “a memory to glow by.”

Lake Austin

Indulge in the Hill Country’s picturesque landscape at Lake Austin Spa Resort (1705 S. Quinlan Park Rd.) in Northwest Austin. Tracing its history to the late 1940s, when it was a modest fishing camp with ten guest rooms, the property has since transformed into an exquisite luxury resort, voted the top destination spa by Condé Nast Traveler every year since 2008. Owners Michael McAdams and William Rucks have created a one-of-a-kind experience on the shores of Lake Austin, outfitted with a spacious LakeHouse Spa and 40 charming guest houses, each one elegantly furnished by local artisans. After a day at the pool or in the aromatic herb gardens, Chef Stephane Beaucamp—a veteran of the Trianon Palace at Versailles and BuddhaBar in Paris—invites guests to savor his innovative and healthy approach to French fare at the dining room or Aster Café. “My style is garden-to-table cuisine,” he says. Whether you come for the spa or dining, the resort or the landscape, Lake Austin Resort and Spa is an adventure for a lifetime.

San Antonio No trip to San Antonio is complete without a visit to the Pearl Brewery (200 E. Grayson St.), a focal point for the city’s culinary community. In addition to the producers-only farmers market on Saturdays, the Culinary Institute of America opened its Texas campus at the Brewery, complemented by the critically-acclaimed restaurant, Nao, which explores lesser known Latin American fare, like Oaxacan Stone Soup and casitas—a Peruvian take on sushi with purple potato puree. Nao joins the pantheon of outstanding restaurants at the brewery, including Andrew Weissman’s Il Sogno Osteria and Sandbar Fish House & Market, as well as a number of shops like Adelante Boutique and The Twig Book Shop. In the evening, escape to the sumptuous JW Marriott San Antonio Resort (23808 Resort Pkwy.). Complete with a 26,000 square foot Lantana Spa, seven restaurants, expansive golf course and more, the JW Marriott is a luxurious Hill Country experience.
