The Formula 1 races are happening this weekend, but preparations for the four-day free Austin Fan Fest have already begun.
It's all free and it's all for the fans.
Racing simulators, kids areas, music stages and even an X Games zone--will all be part of this year's F1 Fan Fest.
Of course, food and drink are also part of the festivities.
Gear heads will have the chance to meet F1 drivers, buy autographed merchandise and even try to win a car.
Downtown traffic is already a little heavier than usual because of street closures for the Fan Fest.
