Start your engines, racing enthusiasts, because this November 15th marks the beginning of the 2013 United States Formula 1 Grand Prix in Austin, Texas. Drawing in over 100,000 people world-wide, the Formula 1 US Grand Prix is one of the most anticipated motorsports events of the year.

For those of you still looking for accommodations, The Inn Above Onion Creek is the perfect location for your stay during the Grand Prix. The Inn is located about 30 minutes from the track, so you can get there and back without having to schedule hours of travel time and after the wild roar of the day's race you can come back to the Inn to relax, enjoy your full breakfast and 3-course dinner and revel in the peaceful quiet of the Texas hill country. You can even book a massage at our spa to help relax before and after the race.

But don't wait too long, you’ll want to book your room at the Inn soon. Like the Formula 1 drivers, these rooms will go fast!
