The US Grand Prix happens every year in Austin, Texas, at the Americas (COTA). The US Grand Prix is held in November on the second Saturday after the USGP in Indianapolis. This event is also known as Formula 1 United States Grand Prix. Austin is very familiar with hosting major events like this because of its ties with SXSW and ACL festivals.
The US Grand Prix is after the USGP in Indianapolis. It’s part of the Formula One World Championships and one of three Grands Prix that, together with Canada and Brazil, makeup North America’s F1 tripleheader.
Circuit architect Hermann Tilke designed this venue to accommodate more than 120,000 spectators, about 20% larger than most permanent circuits built since 2000. Track length is estimated at 5.5 miles (2.47 mi/4.088 km).
Circuit of the Americas is a multipurpose facility suitable for various uses, including Formula One racing, motorcycle racing, auto racing, music concerts, festivals, driving schools, private testing, and vehicle manufacturers.
The US Grand Prix was an arrangement made in early 2011 after F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone expressed dissatisfaction with Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s management by its parent company, which was later bought out by the same group that owns COTA’s circuit.
Even if you’re not into Formula 1 racing, Circuit of the Americas plans to show live feeds throughout US GP weekend in multiple locations so everyone can partake in the US GP excitement. US GP weekend events include free US GP concerts featuring Usher , Mariachi Sol de Mexico, David Garza y los Gatos Negros , Ximena Sariñana , Ana Tijoux and Saul Williams .
Circuit of The Americas location: 9201 Circuit of The Americas Boulevard, Austin, TX 78617-3014
