Italian Grand Prix Formula 1 Breakfast Viewing Party


Begins: Sep 02, 2018
Ends: Sep 02, 2018


Alexandria, VA

Please join DC Fiats as they host the Sixth Annual Gran Premio d'ITALIA Watch Party/Breakfast on September 2, 2018 at Osteria Marzano. If you haven't been keeping up with the 2018 Formula One season you are missing what is arguably one of the most exciting seasons in the past 20 years.  Ferrari and Mercedes have been trading places in the points race and Aston Martin Red Bull Racing has won a number of races and still is in the championship race.  Even the fledgling US owned Haas F1 Team with Ferrari power has shown an ability to score points and they may even reach the podium this year.  The Alfa Romeo Sauber Team has a phenomenal young driver in Charles Leclerc who has consistently scored in the points.  

Chef Carmine and his team will be preparing a fantastic breakfast buffet for us this year featuring breakfast goodies, fruits and pastries. The price of $25 per person ($12 for children 8 and under) includes food, coffee and juice, tax and gratuity. Specialty drinks will also be available from the cash bar. 

Pre-race coverage begins at 8:30 AM and the race starts at 9:10 AM (1 hour later this year.) Arrive around 8:00 AM to park your Italian car in front of the restaurant and enjoy a cup of coffee before heading inside for breakfast and the race. Post race coverage should conclude around 11:30. 

Osteria Marzano is located at 6361 Walker Lane, Suite 140 (Metro Park VI) in Alexandria, VA. Learn more about Osteria Marzano by visiting http://www.osteriamarzano.com.
