  • 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. Silverston...  more »

  • This place is so much fun. Went to the F1 race, went to Taylor Swift and usher with the roots. Great setup for the amount of people who show up. Definitely going again!
  • Awesome venue. One of the best track layouts that I've ever seen. It's very well designed so that you can see a large number of the corners from several spots around the circuit.
  • Awesome world-class racing facility. Great staff. Reasonable ticket prices. We love to park our RV next to the strait away and watch the vintage car racing. Favorite event on the calendar.
  • Circuit of the Americas is huge! Bring comfortable shoes since you will most likely do a fair amount of walking. Overall, I had a great time with the races. The employees was all very helpful, the facilities were very well kept, and the track is amazing. I recommend that everyone visit at least once.
  • Race track which hosts a horde of races including the Formula one US Grand Prix. I was at the venue for the 2016 US Grand Prix and I have to admit, this is amazing. I have been around the entire track and love the different spots they have set up for viewing. There is a tower too which gives us a full view of the track. It is a bit costly though to get on the tower. They charged us 30$ for 15 mins.the view was spectacular though, so I don't mind. The track is a little bit on the outskirts of the city, and they have adequate arrangements for parking so as to avoid traffic blocks during race season.
