Experience The Circuit of The Americas

COTA Map
  • First and only track in the United States to be purpose-built for Formula 1
  • The total length of the circuit is 3.41 miles (5.49 kilometers)
  • The track will run in anti-clockwise direction due to the overwhelming number of left hand turns. Only other circuits currently run this way are: Marina Bay in Singapore, Interlagos in Brazil, Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi and Yeongam in Korea.
  • The spectator capacity estimated to be 120,000 (permanent and temporary seating facilities).
  • One of the unique features of the circuit is a deliberate widening of the circuit in the corners, to encourage drivers to follow multiple racing lines.
  • There are 20 turns (11 left, 9 right) and a total elevation change of over 130 ft. including a long and very steep uphill run into the hairpin Turn 1, there will be excellent passing opportunities at the tracks signature corner.
  • From the start line the cars speed into the first corner, the highest point of the circuit, with an apex positioned perfectly on the crest of the hill.
  • Next, the drivers descend downhill into a series of fast left/right sweepers and through a fast blind corner at Turn 10 leaving them at the far end of the circuit and a hairpin of Turn 11.
  • The cars then blast down a huge 0.62-mile straight (DRS Zone) back to toward the main straight exceeding 200 mph before slamming the breaks into Turn 12 and the next series of curves.
  • This will be followed by a downhill, multi-apex corner started with Turn 16 that has very limited run-off before the final two corners of the circuit and then back on the main straight.

F1 in Austin Thank you Ticket City for nice tickets for the Sunday race. Buying online was easy experience. Price was good. Tickets were on the front stretch and perfect view of cars. We had an enjoyable time in Austin - all of the people were very nice. Thumbs up to everything! April 24, 2014
Great Event The Grand Prix is one of the worlds classic sporting events and the staff at Ticket City were extremely helpful and did a superb job job, however one frustration was the parking. We had tickets at T15, I wonder why we were allocated parking passes in Lot L to enter at T10. You had to line up to enter, go through a bag search routine, exit T11, line up to ride the shuttle, line up to enter and finally another bag search. then do it all again on the journey back to L minus the bag search. Just curious!!!!! November 19, 2013
F1 2012 We secured our tickets through TICKETCITY and we look forward to working with them again. Excellent customer service! Nothing promised, but yet everything was delivered. Telephonic information was accurate and concise. We were never pressured into purchasing anything, just informed about the things we needed to know. We actually picked our tickets up at your Austin location and we were very impressed with everything we observed. Thanks for making our first F1 trip a complete success. The Judds November 18, 2013
Great service, useful advice and top seats! Used ticket city to get some USGP tickets and cant speak highly enough of the service and the event. USGP was a great event in glorious sunshine and to cap it off a fellow Brit won! I had great Grandstand seats which were alittle more than I probably wanted to pay but were good value and way cheaper than I had seen elsewhere. Upon collection the TC rep was friendly and helpful - usefully informing where we could get a complimentary park & ride to avoid exorbitant parking costs. All in all a great experience and would gladly do again December 5, 2012
