Sebastien Buemi arrived at K1 Speed Austin on Thursday smiling. Smiling because he knew that he would meeting his fans and racing electric go karts at K1 Speed. The Valero Leadership & Red Bull Augmented Racing Winners received a chance to meet and talk with Buemi in an intimate setting. They asked him questions about his karting and racing experience in Formula 1.
Once the meet & greet was over they headed over to register and started getting ready to go on the track. A crowd gathered around the pit to watch Buemi go through the rules and step into the kart. Buemi then proceeded to hit the track. After a couple laps he got acclimated to the layout and starting clocking some good times. He set the fastest lap of the week. Buemi turned into the pits smiling and then headed over to the Red Bull Augmented Racing Winners to give them some race tips. The guys took their knowledge and raced well. The public then was greeted by Buemi and he started signing autographs and taking photos.
All in all a great event and we thank Red Bull Racing on making this happen. Good luck to everyone heading to the races at the Circuit of the Americas this weekend. K1 Speed will have a booth at the Fan Fest downtown on 4th and Lavaca street in the Kids Zone.
