United States Grand Prix at Trish & Ken's

  • Trish & Ken

For those of us not fortunate enough to be going to Austin, we'll still be having a Meetup at our place, watching the race on TV. Make sure you're on time, because the race starts at 2PM and we'll be watching it live.

Although its a lame duck season, there's still a heated battle for second in the driver's and constructor's championships: Can Lewis get back on form for a repeat victory at Circuit of the Americas? Will Vettel make it _eight(!)_ straight. Will Kimi show up? Can Mercedes consolidate 2nd over Ferrari? Lots of questions still to be answered and hopefully some exciting racing to go in the penultimate event of the 2013 season. Watch while you can because we'll all soon be missing F1 once the off-season is upon us.

Couple of quick notes:

- As usual, bring your own beverages. For this meetup's food, in honor of the Grand Prix being here in the U.S., we're going to have a BBQ. It might be a little chilly manning the grill out on the balcony, but it'll be BURGERS and HOT DOGS w/ all the fixins on the menu for the upcoming race weekend.

- For those that haven't been before, you can't miss our place. Our townhouse will be the one flying the checkered flag.

- And finally, as usual, the driveway is reserved for whoever is carpooling (contact me privately). For everyone else, there are usually spots in the nearby visitor parking and residential streetside parking also nearby.

- If anyone is coming by metro, the Van Dorn metro stop is about a mile away. Give us a heads up by 9PM the day before the race and we'll pick you up at the metro.

      Hi Trevor - Fortunately it is a later start time today so we saw your message. Yes - we can pick you up at 1pm (I think there is a train that arrives right around 1.) My cell is[masked]

    Is there anything we can bring?

      We're bringing a slightly rich side (three kinds of beans, some ground beef, bacon at the core) that's a family staple. It's cooking now :)

    Probably most of you have heard by now Kimi is out for the remainder of the season w/ back surgery. Certainly makes you wonder about the timing given the circumstances surrounding Lotus being able to pay him or not. Now what's this I hear about Alonso not being able to race due to concussion? Is Lewis going to back in to P2 for the season? Weird end to the season if so.

      yeah :( I thought that he is a quality driver. looks like Hekki Kovaliennen (sp) will return to F1 for a couple races. I really hope that he too gets a drive.

      I'm surprised Lotus didn't put a young prospect in Kimi's seat. Neat to see Rossi beat Pic by 6/10ths in P1.

    Hi all,
    Joined this group a couple of years ago, but never managed to actually meetup, as I live 2 hrs north from Washington, DC area. Its just the passion & enthusiasm that made me think I fit here & would make it sometime. However, this weekend I happen to visit fam around the area & being among the unfortunate ppl who can't make it to Austin, would love to catch up with the rest & watch together if possible.
    Was hoping you guys would usually meet at a bar/restaurant, but Trish & ken, that's really nice of you guys to host & I would like to join, if that's ok? Not sure how open is the group... as of course love for the sport is the only c'mon ground :)
    Cheers,
    Guna

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
