4 Places in Texas to watch the Australian Grand Prix

The Australian Grand Prix, held in Melbourne, is the first race of the 2012 Formula One season. In November, the series will have its first race in Austin, Texas. Here are four Texan watch parties for F1 fans and good friends to meet and share the excitement! All watch party hosts look for venues with multiple large TV screens and good sound quality. Those live races you’ve been trying to watch at 1:00 in the morning, with the sound turned way down, can be enjoyed in their full, loud glory the next day!
