Local, national and international racing fans are excited as the Circuit of the Americas opens in Austin on November 15. This new event will bring lots of amazing new technology to Central Texas. SXSW Interactive is all about creative tech and to celebrate we want to invite you to a happy hour for everyone interested in cars and racing.

SXSW will offer a complimentary beer / wine / well beverages at Stephen F's bar upstairs from 6:00pm-7:30pm on Thursday, November 15. RSVP today for a chance to talk cars before heading over to catch a sneak preview of a brand new F1 documentary, 1, at the Paramount Theatre.
