  • What a track! I have raced a lot of tracks in the world but this is one of my favourites! The first corner is amazing how high it is if you are driving at the straight. In the evening you can go for a...  read more »
  • Busy, Busy place. Great for concerts but packs pretty fast and not easy to see the performance except on big screen. Lots going on throughout the year and plenty of things to do. Food is a bit expensi...  read more »
  • Great for F! races, motorcycle races, running events and a concert venue! Clean and safe grounds. Easy access and alternate forms of transportation offered to get to the track for different events 
  • Excellent venue. The design was well planned to accommodate large crowds and events. The only thing that creates congestion is the roads that lead into the area. Small country farm roads are a mess if they're the main artery for traffic to pass through. Besides that I always enjoy the events here.
  • Amazing world class track. Great for spectating and now they have opened up to grassroots racing. The track and officials are professional. The track surface is not like any other track I have been to. It is more expensive than other local tracks but worth the money.
  • I've been to every MotoGP race here since the first race in 2013. The track and grounds are spectacular. I'm guessing that most of the staff at these larger events are seasonal because most of them are as clueless as the guests. I learned quickly to not ask for help from any of the staff there after receiving incorrect/conflicting responses or blank stares.
  • 4-7 worked security at media center for star at circuit of America. 4-8 5 star event take scanning booth. Scott King supervisor, Burnet staffing. Excellent place to work and attend. Snacks brought out to you in the morning and if you work all day lunch is provided. The media cafe even brought me out something to eat as I got tired from a long day. People are friendly and respectful and are on top of their jobs worked with Dorna today scanning badges.. Was a phone camera laser scanner...5 star event services, security & staff were really good at there jobs as there is a lot to keep running smooth!!! Everything ran according to schedule and all I saw were people enjoying themselves. I would defiantly take my family to this type of event.
  • Went for the last X Games, and had an easy time wandering around the site. Really enjoyed that the track was stocked with Austin's local food trucks, including Torchy's and Amy's. Got pretty hot, so be prepared if going to a summer activity. Motorcycle parking was free when I went, so may be worth checking if you ride. Find a reason to check it out at least once!
