Circuit of The Americas is a new world-class motorsports and entertainment venue in Texas, located nine miles from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and less than 15 miles from downtown Austin.
F1 - 2012 USGP NOV 16-18
Circuit of The Americas is more than a track – it is designed to be the only purpose-built facility in the U.S. to host the FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX™ through 2021 and V8 SUPERCARS from 2013-2018. It will be the only FIA-certified Grade 1 track in the United States, and one of only 26 Grade 1-certified motorsports facilities in the world. The circuit currently holds exclusive rights in the United States to host a V8 SUPERCARS event.
The venue is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of fans from all over the world and be seen by approximately 30 million television viewers across the globe for the FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX™ while also hosting dozens of high-profile motorsports, entertainment and business events each year. CoTA will also serve as a leader in sustainability as it relates to major event venues and motorsports, through high-performance operations, design, research, education and partnerships.
CoTA-hosted events are projected to generate an annual economic impact of $400 million to $500 million, equating to $4 billion to $5 billion over 10 years for Texas. The CoTA-hosted FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX™ will attract as many as 300,000 people each Grand Prix weekend, with an estimated 80 percent of attendees coming from outside Texas.

I live in Austin and have been closely following the preparation of the track. All work appears to be very professional and well done. I am looking forward to a very full weekend of racing at the track. I'm pretty sure that there will be a vintage F1 support race, but I can't confirm that because I can't find that announcement right now. The Austin community is excited about the event and is rolling out the red carpet. There will be lots of live music downtown in the evenings, and Austin is noted for good food. Racing, music, and food - it doesn't get much better!
I'll be down there for the show in November along with my son and a couple of buds. They've not made the process very appealing regarding getting tickets, arranging for parking and cleaning up their list of items not allowed. Le Grand Prix du Canada went much easier, even if I did end up getting tickets at the "wrong" end of Grandstand 12. I had expected that COTA and TicketMaster would have had a better setup for requesting tickets back in June. As the ticket availability wound down they provided for requests by actual seat. When I grabbed mine, the upper section of T12 Grandstand did not have 4 seats together in the upper section so I could do no better that 4 together in the lower section. Oh well, It's still F1 and the show should make up for the petty annoyances of getting there.
