I had never gone to F-1 but now I am hooked. I loved the races and the concert. This year we saw Taylor Swift. There are lots of crowds and it is very expensive for food, drink and race memorabilia but for a once a year event it is a fantastic experience. We waited for the driver signing and did... More

There are great views of the race all around the track and it was able to accomodate the large crowds in attendance. During this particular race there were multiple music venues and food options available. I would recommend for all race fans.

I went there for the past three F1 events, last year it was not only a fabulous race but also a Taylor Swift concert . 2015 it was nearly rained out but otherwise its very pleasant, coming and going is well organized and much better than other international circuits. CotA is an example of American organisational skill. BRAVO

Very good public transport (buses) from the city centre on the race days. Love the rural-ish location (Texas scrublands right up to some edges of the circuit). Most of all, compared to e.g. Silverstone, UK, a wonderfully open circuit, with big skies. Walk the track from some great views of the elevation changes.

I visited COTA for the 2016 Formula 1 event. I didn't arrange parking but found this easy enough as i drove in for $40 sat and sun with a shuttle to the circuit. You can tell this is not like the hardcore fan tracks as i didn't even have a queue of traffic when entering! The circuit itself was very... More

Are you a race fan? Then this is the stop and tour for you. We were lucky today that the Chevy race team was using track for practice for new cadallic owners. You get to see all parts of this track and view behind the scenes of race control. Worth the price and time for sure.

I have been at several F1 racetracks around the world (Monaco, Spa, Monza, Silverstone, Jerez, Barcelona, Magny Cours) but none has been as well organized as COTA (with exception of 10/2015 when we were at the mercy of ta tropical storm). I have been at all the USA GP in Austin. This year (2016) it was great, better flow, more... More

I attended the Cadillac V-Performance Lab on November 19, 2016 all-day. The experience at this track was absolutely incredible! The track and the event were just incredible. After having experienced this track, I would definitely love to drive it again on another track day. The weather was cold in the morning, but perfect for a track day in the afternoon.... More

Circuit of the Americas (COTA) is a fantastic track which takes many of the best features of other GP tracks and incorporates them into one of the best circuits in the world. Access to and from is good as is car parking and concession stands. Great views from almost everywhere around the track make this a GP not to be... More
