"We look forward to welcoming Formula 1 fans from around the world back to Austin, Texas, for another incredible weekend of world-class racing and entertainment served up Texas-style," COTA President and Chief Executive Officer Jason Dial said. "Just two races into the new season, and we're already seeing the significant impact the new car designs and engines are having on the competition. You really can't take anything for granted this season. That means the F1 USGP will be another must-attend race for diehard fans, eager to see how the new cars take to our demanding track in Austin. 

"The strong interest in our race isn't limited to long-time F1 enthusiasts. The huge party atmosphere surrounding the on-track action is a big reason why the F1 USGP has proven to be one of the most popular events on the F1 schedule," Dial continued. "We offer fans a state-of-the-art venue, which was just nominated as 2014's 'Sports Facility of the Year.' Drivers love our 3.4-mile, Grade 1 circuit. We surround our great racing with non-stop activities and entertainment for fans of all ages. And we make sure the celebration continues in downtown Austin throughout grand prix weekend with Austin Fan Fest, a massive street party that has become a fan favorite. The Formula 1 United States Grand Prix is one of the biggest sports parties of the year, and we're eager to show our members and guests another fantastic time this fall." 

This year's highlights include a robust schedule of support races, an F1 driver showcase with free autograph and interview sessions, enhanced fan hospitality areas throughout the venue, and a post-race track invasion and concert in the Austin360 Amphitheater. Fans who make their travel plans early will find more affordable hotel rooms available through COTA's online hotel booking portal, http://circuitoftheamericas.com/bookaroom.

BUY THE BEST SEATS NOW!

At the track, spectators looking for the best seats will again find them in the Main Grandstand and Turns 1 and 15. Seats in these areas sellout first, and fans are encouraged to purchase these seats now while inventory is available.

Reserved bleacher seats in the Turn 12 grandstand, a fan favorite due to its direct view of the Back Straight, which is the primary passing area of the track, are $499 for a three-day pass.

The natural elevation of the circuit's east side gives the three-day reserved bleacher seats at Turns 3, 4, 5, 9 and 11 breath-taking views of the on-track action, including the track's sweeping "esses," and this year are uniformly priced at $299 per person.
