We always love coming to this track. Great seating. Delicious food and LOTS of food options. Live music all over the place. Just wish it had a bit more shade and more organized parking lot exit plans.

Great place to watch all types of Motorsport. Was here for the Lone Star Le Mans race and will be back next year for the F 1s they can't do enough for you. A special mention to Jeanie the events manager as she goes that extra mile to help you. Will be back soon.

There is no shade anywhere. We went to a concert in April and the heart and sun was unbearable. It was better after sunset but of course the concert was nearly over by then. If you don't like to sweat (like me) make sure you go when the temps are in the 60s max.

If you love racing, this is it. You're there. Austin's still nearly new 100 million dollar COTA track is where you can watch the best formula one racing and go deaf at the same time. You won't care. It's a blast. What?

Unfortunately, it's quite a distance from Austin, traffic is often terrible. There is plenty of parking and shuttles from the lots. The lawn area is great, but there is also plenty of comfortable seating. Food is mostly food truck fare. The two concerts I saw were great with two large screens for those not close to the stage.

Great facility, clean, safe, plenty of bars and food stands. Always long lines at the ladies rooms 😡. Good security, good parking. Could use better lighting up close to the outside of the track(walking back to cars was very dark). I have been to 3 concerts at COTA and have always enjoyed it. I love Shows that have some GA...

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 nice diner in Austin or you can go for a drink.

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 expensive and like all other parks and attractions not much for taste or health in my opinion.

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

This place is amazing. First off it is a world class motor speedway race course. Secondly, it is an excellent venue for outdoor concerts. Both are outstanding and once a year they both come together when the speedway host a world class race event weekend. It is better to take public transportation because you will have to park, in a...
