What do you get when you combine Formula 1 with the magic of Hollywood? Together with thousands of auto enthusiasts, tire screeches and donuts in dream cars, you get the first F1 Fan Festival in Los Angeles! Less than a week before the United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, F1 fans on the West Coast were treated to a festival of stunts, celebrities, and a one-of-a-kind experience that shut down Hollywood Boulevard for two straight days.
As Pirelli and F1 banners lined the iconic boulevard, the festivities began. Tuesday saw the official kick-off with the Hollywood Ride of Fame. Cars streamed down the street back-to-back, displaying a rare collection of road and race cars. Accompanying the historic vehicles were lively music and impressive showmanship from parachuters, stunt bikers and much more. If you looked around, you may have even spotted a few stars among the crowd of passionate petrol-heads.
