The track itself was cool and it was easy to watch racing at various turns, etc. However, there are no permanent toilets (just portapotties), food is only served from a limited selection of food trucks (happily, Torchy's was one!), and drink stands are tents clustered...More

COTA is a fantastic race course in the middle of nowhere with terrible accessibility. Once you go through the ordeal of getting there, the experience is great. The shuttle busses take random routes to the track and the time can vary by 100%. And after...More

Staff is very professional and well prepared to deal with such large crowds. We got general admission tickets and took folding chairs. That worked out great for us as we could sit at various turns and get good views of the race. Plenty of concessions...More

Outstanding facilities for all motorsports. Clean and spacious. Excellent staff. Great track foods. Great to watch races and also to drive on track at paid events. Turn 15 is my favorite to watch from. Turns 2-10 to drive. We visit every opportunity we can.

What a great track. Beautiful weather. Great seats. Turn 15. Season tickets. Lots of booths and vendors. New owners of track and you can see a huge improvement over the previous years.

Awesome place. You have to go here at least once in a lifetime. The organization they have for every event is amazing. I liked it better the Moto GP event than the F1, but that's my personal taste. I highly recommend bringing your own water,...More

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.
