Formula 1 in Austin is awesome!!

Had a great time at race. Plenty of food and drink selection. Lots of bathrooms. Track views are awesome. Easy to get around even on race day. Parking is good.

Have just spent the last three days visiting the 'Circuit of The Americas' for the F1. What an amazing circuit! I know the F1 drivers love this place but for us spectators it's also fantastic. We were sitting at turn 9 and could see turn 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and just 12. I've been to several F1 races... More

We were very surprised to experience such cheaply designed facilities when comparing the cost of tickets, food, drinks, and parking. Parking at the track will cost you $100! There are no bathrooms, only out houses! The race is fun to see but the place sucks especially if you want to stay the entire day.

Iv'e been to a great many racetracks worldwide and COTA is among the best. Its the future of motorsports. Beautiful, safe and challenging. But hell must the ticketing and vender/ food prices be SO outrageous? Absolute greed abounds and spoils the experience.

Didnt feel bored even though i was travelling alone. the experience from the tower is just awesome! The facilities were amazing, only downside was the food options for vegetarians and... More

I attended last years COTA Formula One Race which a true experience. (I am also going to this coming Sundays Race with another all access pass). My son works for a special department with the City of Austin and was given two All Access Passes. He shared one with me. I ate all I wanted from the fabulous (food was... More

Attended a concert with my spouse. Loved it! Reminded me of the Verizon in Selma, but better. Food trucks were awesome. Nice lawn to play on and relax before the show. Parking wasn't that bad - in and out fairly quickly.

I went there for the MotoGP race. I've been to a lot of tracks and it really is one of the best. It is a great racing layout and you can walk around pretty much the entire track. Food, beverages and concessions were available and price appropriate. All track personnel were remarkably friendly. The only downside to this track is... More

We Absolutely Loved the Big Race in '13 and people watching (Antonio Banderas and Melanie G) but it was Unsafe to use SH 130 to get there - one lane exit so 80 mph traffic has to stop on a dime with traffic backed up over a mile!!! The City/ County pays the Circuit a big fee annually but the... More

No words describe this track. Only bad part is its hard to get from Paddock to Tower , Stage area. They need a tunnel there , other then that its like Le Mans in the US.
