We went to COTA for the 2015 United States Formula 1 Grand Prix. The track is purpose-built for Formula 1 and it didn't disappoint. It was a fantastic weekend despite the rain and the race was thrilling. If you like racing COTA is a great place to watch it.

The circuit of the Americas is an interesting place to visit if you enjoy auto racing. You can tour the facilities and shops and, if you go at the right time of year, watch Formula 1 cars compete in the annual Grand Prix.

If you enjoy Formula 1 racing and can afford the flight, hotel, local transportation, track tickets and access to the Paddock Club hospitality for a 2.5 day event then this is the place you want to be. Lots of excitement at a great event on a great track albeit extremely expensive - thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend it.

Had a great two days at the games in spite of the rain. They did everything they could to get the activities online after brief showers, even made out Saturday tickets good for Sunday. As at most of these events you pay premium for food and drinks, but worth it for an occasional splurge. Too bad this was last year... More

Amazing race track love it! Ridesmart puts on a great track day. I've been there for 7 track days and it never gets old. The guys at Ridesmart are always willing to help.

I like this venue. I have been here for several different events. It's clean and well maintained. I was surprised at my first visit that I had to pay $20 for parking and they only take cash.

This was great for a concert venue, although in July, it's hot! the pickup for parents left a lot to be desired and the people directing traffic... need a lesson in manners.

I was in Austin for business and had a morning free. Being an F1 fan, I decided to take the track tour. The staff were very friendly and the tour was 25$. Cameron my tour guide was fantastic. His knowledge of the track and racing made it a fantastic experience. He made sure we hit all the high points and... More

First class venue! We were here for the MotoGP races 2016. Be prepared for a ton of walking to experience everything this track has to offer! Bring your own snacks if you want anything healthy. Otherwise this was a beautiful venue, great seats, very clean restrooms, good array of cuisine. All in all I was pleasantly surprised. Also I loved... More
