Formula 1 Comes Back to Austin, TX

The Formula One Grand Prix track in Austin is the first purpose-built Formula One track in the United States. The Circuit of the Americas (COTA) is a 3.41 mile course of over 20 twisting turns specially designed using the best details from the world's most challenging F1 courses.

Take a look at our infographic for a turn-by-turn map of the course and facts about Formula 1 racing and the Austin Grand Prix.

The Grandstands

Premium Seating - Padded seating with chair backs. Elevated views of the pit area and racing action. Close proximity to the VIP area. Big screens to catch all the action.

General Admission - There are two types of general admission: Seating on the grass berms, and first-come-first-serve bleachers.

Grandstand Seating - Positioned at strategic points in the race, the grandstands offer heart-pumping views of the course. Seat back or bleacher-style seating.

The Location

COTA is just outside of Austin, about 7 miles southeast of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and about 14 miles from downtown Austin's live music venues, restaurants, bars and quirky places you'll only find in Austin. Texas's best known strip is the seven blocks of 6th Street - Austin's entertainment center. Since our HomeAway headquarters is right here in Austin, some of our team put their recommendations for coffee shops, bars and things to do in this slideshow.
