“F1 glamor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

I really don't like car-racing but the husband convinced me to go to the first F1 race. I had such a blast, I can't even believe it. we had grandstand seats- very comfortable with easy access to restrooms and food vendors. Every single person working there that day was incredibly cheerful, kind and helpful, and the atmosphere was great, due to diehard fans from all over the world. I'll tell you" gibe it a shot. I will never be a F1 fan but I will be back this November

“Great Fun place to watch F1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Went to the inaugural year of racing here fro F1. Thought it was going to be a nightmare, but instead turned out to be well maanged and staffed. Getting in and out was simple. Just minutes from tollway. These guys really knew what they were doing and onsite staff was very friendly.

Only complaint was that food could have been better.

“Beautiful facility but poorly presented”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Attended 2 days of the MotoGP in April. I am a former motorcycle roadracer, so my evaluation of the track is more than just as a bystander.

The track layout is first-rate and there are many areas where you can see multiple corners. We hung out at turn 9.5, saw a lot of action but there was no big monitor there.

The track management/promoters failed miserably in presenting Austin culture to the foreigners, visitors and locals. There was extremely loud rap music blaring, with a bass level so loud it made your chest vibrate. Couldn't get away from it. The food offerings were pitiful; I saw little, if any, local fare. But I did see a pork tenderloin sandwich truck. Might as well have been in Des Moines.

They need to get a clue and start making this an Austin experience.

“Moto GP”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Great to have the world visit Austin, Plenty of great seating in general admission. Walk can be long depending on parking location. Needs some shade trees. Only complaint - more monitors are needed on the East end of the track to view live coverage. Great time for both races and concerts.

“Great Concert venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Nicely laid out. Nice size, not too big. Good selection of concert food and about average in price. I would go again. Even lawn seats were good.
