First of all, this is one AMAZING racecourse. More twists and turns and S-curves than a Tom Clancy novel. That being said, I'm a fan of the traditional 'infield', which really doesn't exist here. We attended COTA because we have a family member who races....More

The first two years COTA hosted the F1 race were FANTASTIC. Then, I guess, financial reality began to hit. The past year (2016) was great only because it was F1 and we saw friends we only see once a year, at this race. I really...More

This was my first time at COTA, but my 4th time at a F1 race. I will definately be back again to COTA. Austin is a great city and a very nice place for this event.

Firstly be ready for the overpriced food and junk you get here. They steal from you in broad daylight. A bottle of water costs you $4. With that price tag, I didn't buy anything else. The arrangement to ferry the spectators from Austin to the...More
