Austin, TX November 5th, 2019 – My Yacht® Group brought its signature Monaco-style nightlife experience, My Yacht® Club (MYC), back to Austin, Texas during a chilly Formula 1 Emirates United States Grand Prix 2019 race weekend that saw Petronas Mercedes McLaren clinch a one-two finish ahead of Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen. With Valtteri Bottas hoisting the winner’s trophy, second-place Lewis Hamilton secured enough points to cement the World Driving Championship for a sixth time.
Notable attendees of this 8th consecutive MYC – the only ‘pop-up’ nightlife experience to be present every year since the USA GP commenced in 2012 – included former F1 driver and current Channel 4 UK commentator and presenter David “DC” Coulthard, MBE; entrepreneur and reality TV star Richard Rawlings, of Gas Monkey Garage and “Fast ‘n’ Loud” fame; plus a slew of drivers on Sunday, post-race. 5th place finisher, Aston Martin Red Bull Racing’s Alexander Albon, who was named “Driver of the Day” was joined by 12th place finisher, Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat, plus teammate Pierre Gasly, along with 17th place Williams driver, George Russell.
In addition, the Club welcomed Paddock Club F1® clients, VIP guests of COTA, discerning race enthusiasts, Ferrari and supercar owners, local and visiting HNW guests, models and more to the custom-created party at its new location, The Venue ATX, Austin’s premier event space, located on historic 6th Street.
VIP tables with hostesses and bottle service, a variety of DJs mixing EuroHouse with classic hits, plus LED dancers and an aerialist pouring shots of Fix Vodka – that boasts a high alkaline pH, no carbs, is gluten free, and promises a reduced hangover – kept the party going well into the early hours.
Notable attendees of MYC in past years include F1 drivers Nico Hulkenberg, Vallteri Bottas, Sergio Perez, Jean-Eric Vergne, Vitaly Petrov, and Kamui Kobayashi; Hollywood actors Gerard Butler, Matt LeBlanc, Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, and Rick Yune; IndyCar Champion Oriol Servià; boxing legend Jake LaMotta; the Agency’s Mauricio Umansky; John Paul DeJoria of Paul Mitchell & The Patrón Spirits Company; the COTA Grid Girls, and the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
Next up for MYG will be its 9th annual charity superyacht reception during Art Basel Miami Beach, raising funds and awareness for new charity partner YachtAid Global, plus an (U)HNW ‘Night Before’ Astronaut dinner.
