About the Track
Circuit of The Americas (COTA) in Austin, Texas is the first racing facility in the United States purposely built for Formula 1™ racing and is designed to host a variety of sports and entertainment events. The inaugural F1 USGP recorded a three-day attendance of more than 265,000 fans with 117,429 attending the race on Nov. 17, making the COTA’s first Grand Prix the second-most attended Formula 1 race of the season. The 2013 F1 USGP attracted 250,324 spectators over three days’ time, securing COTA’s status as the United States’ new home for F1 racing.
The 1,500-acre complex features a variety of permanent structures designed for business, education, entertainment and race use, with only 350 acres fully developed. The 3.4-mile undulating racetrack was designed by the world-famous architectural and engineering firm, Hermann Tilke GmbH & Co., and features dramatic, natural elevation changes, including a 133-foot climb up to its signature Turn 1. The 20-turn circuit incorporates some of the best-loved and most challenging turns from other iconic Formula 1 tracks around the world.
