AUSTIN, Texas – Last night, The Rattle Inn played host to the fourth annual Buxton’s Big Time Bash, presented by The Austin Grand Prix, and supporting both Meals on Wheels and the Wilson Children’s Fund.
As ever, it was a good one.
Full fundraising details for the charity event will arrive in the coming days, but initial projections are good and trending ahead of where they were in 2014.
A quartet of Formula 1 drivers – Williams’ Felipe Massa and test driver Alex Lynn, Ferrari test and reserve driver Esteban Gutierrez and Manor Marussia’s Alexander Rossi – joined GP2 veterans and current IndyCar drivers Conor Daly and Luca Filippi, and the NBC Sports broadcast team of Leigh Diffey, David Hobbs and Steve Matchett, all joined Will Buxton on stage over the course of the evening.
Prizes came in from Mercedes AMG Petronas, Scuderia Ferrari, Infiniti Red Bull Racing, Williams Martini Racing, Scuderia Toro Rosso, Sahara Force India, Manor F1 Team and several others over the course of the evening.
More will come, but here’s a quick social roundup of various posts from last night. More can be found via #BBBash on Twitter:
