Getting Ready For Formula 1 Weekend
Public information professionals from the City of Austin and other agencies responsible for providing critical services information on Formula 1 race weekend (November 16-18) toured the Formula 1 site last week as part of an orientation.
Preparations are under way for the expected 300,000 visitors. City of Austin staff will be redoubled at the airport and other locations. For instance, some 10 cargo planes loaded with racing cars and equipment will begin arriving in early November that will each require twenty-six 18-wheeler sized trailers for transporting the cars and materials to the race track.
