AUSTIN (KXAN) - Thousands of Formula One U.S. Grand Prix fans will descend on Austin this weekend for the first F1 race held in the country in five years.
But unlike other sporting events in the capital city, F1 brings with it a certain crowd -- including some extremely wealthy fans from around the world.
Planners like My Yacht party planner Nicholas Frankl help the so-called caviar-and- Dom-Perignon crowd out in a town like Austin, known more for its cold beers than champagne.
Frankl talks about special VIP ticket packages to the race for those high-end clients and what sorts of perks they get.
And his work goes outside of the Circuit of The Americas , with the F1 club downtown -- where tables cost at least $2,950 and individual passes cost $300 per person.
The My Yacht F1 Club happens Friday night through Sunday at Ballet Austin on West Third Street.
Light snow flurries were reported early Saturday just north of the KXAN viewing area. Sub-freezing temperatures along with a slight chance of light snow, sleet and freezing rain will continue through Sunday morning.
Investigators are still trying to figure out who murdered an Austin teacher in Benghazi on Thursday.
Back in June, Governor Rick Perry signed a new law officially letting teachers and students use greetings such as "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Hannukah" in school, all without getting in any trouble.

The Austin Humane Society reopened to the public Friday after closing its doors for six weeks.
Sub-freezing temperatures and an approaching upper level disturbance could combine to produce some patchy freezing drizzle or sleet Saturday and early Sunday morning.
