March Race Calendar

Highlights on the March Central Texas racing calendar. Check out the races & compare hotel rates directly from Austin Race Hotels. If we are missing any local races, feel free to add them in the comments below.

In this month’s race calendar, you’ll find that some races are themed around Texas’ Independence Day, March 2nd. Yes, Texans are proud of their heritage and we truly were our own Republic. It was this struggle for freedom from Mexico 176 years ago that created larger-than-life heroes like James Bowie and Davy Crockett, and battle cries of “Come and Take It” and “Remember the Alamo!” Learn more about Texas Independence Day at txindependence.org.

  • Special racing event: The Australian Grand Prix Formula One watch party! Join other local F1 fans for brunch and racing at Z’Tejas in downtown Austin. The first race in the 2012 season is in the midst of South by Southwest festival (SXSW) – expect a great turnout! Hosted by our friends at The Austin Grand Prix. RSVP
