Austin is now home to the only The Formula 1 Stop in the United State. The track was built for this race, and now has gown into an event venue for music, other races, and a variety of other fun uses for the locals. While the F1 is in town, Austin transforms into an international hub, as racing enthusiasts come from the world over to see the races and celebrate at related events. Downtown is packed with events, helicopters fill the sky, and there are parties galore if you can get an invite. The event is typical in late October.
