Uptown Valet and Transportation had our busiest weekend ever with the Formula One races in Austin back in November. We had a host of parties to valet at, our chauffeurs working round the clock and official Circuit of the Americas shuttles to drive and manage.

The first of many of Austin’s F1 events – the Fashion Week Shift into Style kickoff

We started back in August, with the Circuit of the Americas Shift into Style Austin Fashion Week kick-off. A busy event at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, it was an exciting night and an excellent combination of events, as Circuit of the Americans and Austin Fashion Week both know how to put on a show.

The weekend of the races, we had valet attendants at multiple parties Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. We parked more cars in that time than probably any three day period, with venues ranging from southeast Austin near the track, to downtown, to out closer to Johnson City where we parked cars for a party sponsored by Ferrari. Read our write-up of it here.

We also had shuttles wrapped with Circuit of the Americas branding in service throughout the weekend in addition to our chauffeurs working in all our cars as well as some that we made use of just for the weekend.  We closed out the weekend by returning to the Bob Bullock Museum, managing parking for the Circuit of the Americas Official After Party.

It was a busy weekend that we were happy to have gotten through well. Our staff and the people we worked with all weekend long were fantastic, and we look forward to working on Circuit of the Americas F1 events in Austin in 2013.

If you’re interested in our valet, chauffeur, shuttle management, or any of our other services, please don’t hesitate to Contact Us today.

It’s starting to feel like autumn in Austin and that means the fall wedding and event season is upon us.

October is probably only behind May as the busiest wedding month in Austin, and we’ll be working every weekend providing valet services, getaway limos for the bride and grooom, shuttle coordination and more at some of the nicest wedding venues in Austin. We worked this past weekend at Laguna Gloria and the evening weather was lovely, and there’s only going to be more of that on the way.

The Austin City Limits Music Festival will occur from October 12-14 and will feature a lineup of some of the best artists in the country. While some of our employees will no doubt be enjoying the music, we will be able to handle most any request that comes our way. If you’re coming into town and need a ride from the airport, we can help you out. If you’ve got a party going on that weekend (ACL-related and otherwise) and need valets to manage your guest cars, let us know.

Circuit of the Americas will bring Formula One racing to Austin and we are going to see all of our services booked up for that weekend.  We’ve been renting out our limousines and luxury cars for months now and getting some valet and shuttle work as well. If you’re looking for anything transportation related around the Circuit of the Americas, let us know quickly so we can allocate everything we can to meet your needs.

There are a slew of other, smaller events going on as well. If you’re coming into town for the Austin Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, Texas Book Festival or any other event this season, let us know – chauffeur, airport transportation, shuttle services – whatever it is you need we’d be happy to help. Contact us or make a reservation today.

We are getting closer and closer to having Formula One racing here in the heart of Texas with the Circuit of the Americas race set to take place from November 16-19. Tickets have been selling quickly and the town has been getting ready for months. It will bring unprecedented traffic to southeast Austin and they’re even getting ready for large amounts of helicopter traffic.

There are multiple events leading up to the race, highlighted by the Formula Run footrace and the  Shift into Style kick-off for Austin Fashion Week. Shift into Style will feature F1 race cars, special previews of race fashions, and will have valet parking from Uptown Valet; it’s an event we’re excited to work at.

Don’t wait until the last minute if you need any transportation services; we will be fully booked for the weekend and want to get to work on what you need as soon as possible so we can help make your Circuit of the Americas experience the best it can be. If you need valet services for an F1 party, need a chauffeur to the race, shuttles coordinated or any other transportation service, let us know.
