Austin’s F1 Race Weekend Saw The Largest Attendance Ever

in Austin by Greg Mikesell Leave a comment

formula-1-austin 2016

Perhaps Taylor Swift saved Formula One in America after all. Or great weather did. Either way, this weekend’s United States Grand Prix in Austin was a smash success, the most attended race yet in the event’s now four-year history.

Moonlighting over at Autoweek, our own Alanis King reported from the scene 269,889 people attended the festivities over a three-day period. That’s about 4,000 more than even the race’s inaugural weekend in 2012, and considerably more than the flood-soaked disaster of 2015, which only drew 224,011 fans and cast serious doubt on the race’s future.

New F1 chairman Chase Carey has expressed a desire to grow the American fanbase, leading to questions about holding multiple races in the United States.

However, Ecclestone is unsure that getting another race in the USA would be possible, having tried to get the Grand Prix of the America in New Jersey off the ground in recent years.

“I think it will be difficult to get more races [in the U.S.]” Ecclestone told Reuters.

Sydney-based drone mapping startup Propeller Aero gets $3.1 million investment from Silicon Valley firms. Now, Propeller Aero plans to upgrade their research and development team.


Silicon Valley VCs raise millions for an Aussie drone mapping startup

In 2014 Rory San Miguel and Francis Vierboom made a bet that not all drone companies would actually need to fly drones, and it seems to be paying off.

On Wednesday their company Propeller Aero, which transforms data captured by drones into survey-grade 3D maps for mining and construction sites, announced it had raised a $3.1 million (A$4 million) funding round.

As well as local venture capital firm Blackbird Ventures, U.S. players Accel Partners and Costanoa Venture Capital have also… Read more at Mashable

Aerial surveys by Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS, or drones) have been generating a lot of attention in surveying and mapping circles due to a potential revolution in productivity. However, one of the limiting factors to date has been the need to accurately determine ground controls points (GCPs) to spatially define the location of captured data.

To overcome this, Sydney-based Propeller Aero have created the first complete workflow with the release of their new AeroPoints ground control point system, which automatically… Read more at SpatialSource

This software company has a unique approach on how to establish a successful business start-up.

Xero’s success story is now gaining grip in the U.S.A. They’ve also announced their partnership with Wells Fargo.


How One Software Startup Made It by Doing Everything Backwards

It’s rare for a startup to go public almost within one year of being founded. But then again, how many startups do you know from Wellington, New Zealand?

Xero makes cloud-based accounting software for small business and they bucked the Silicon Valley roadmap by not waiting to “fully mature” before listing on the stock exchange. “We’ve done everything backwards,” its ebullient founder and CEO Rod Drury told Mashable. “We’ve listed first, then… Read more at Mashable

gael monfils us open 2016The 10th-seeded Frenchman swept Marcos Baghdatis 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 on Sunday to improve to 18-2 in matches he’s played since a first-round loss at Wimbledon. That stretch includes the highest-level tournament title of his career at Washington.

Three days after his 30th birthday, there were still classic Monfils moments in this one, including an attempt to tie his shoe in the middle of a point. But he has yet to drop at set at this U.S. Open.
