Cota does a great job for Formula One race fans in Austin Texas. Free concerts, free shuttles, with the price of admission, that’s about it for the free. The tickets can be a little pricey if you want decent seats, general mission tickets are less...More

Not far. The track sits south and a bit east of downtown austin, about a 20 minute drive. There are hotel/motel facillities nearer the track.

We were 15 minutes from the track and getting there and back was easy . We took Lyft to go downtown when we went and it was only about $10 to $15 with tip.
