Beyond the music entertainment at the Austin360 Amphitheater, there will be a variety of family-friendly activities for guests to enjoy including a chance to see rare and one-of-a-kind memorabilia from motorcycle legend Evel Knievel. The collection, which had been scattered around the world for years, will include Knievel’s motorcycles, helmets and riding leathers, never-before-seen photographs and even x-rays of Evel’s broken and pinned bones.
Circuit of The Americas will also welcome the return of the second annual Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in downtown Austin, set to coincide with the grand prix weekend. Presented by Revival Cycles, an Austin-based custom motorcycle shop, the FREE custom motorcycle and motorcycle-centric art showcase will feature more than 110 wildly different custom and rare machines from world-famous craftsmen such as Roland Sands, Shinya Kimura, and Walt Siegl, and more.
