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 can't complain too much because we are guests in the COTA Club (Level 2, this... More

We attended COTA for the F1 Grand Prix. The facilites are excellent and well laid out. Parking is plenty (be sure to reserve ahead) and they offer a free shuttle to take you to various areas around the circuit. We really enjoyed this service. Main grandstand seating was very good, and offered easy access to restaurants, bathrooms and merchandise vendors.... More

We went for the 2016 United States Grand Prix and what a wonderful facilities it is. If you're a racing fan, this is a fantastic venue to visit. Formula One racing is strong around the World and COTA is a worthy place to hold the USGP. Having a Taylor Swift concert on Saturday and an Usher's on Sunday just added... 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 track and back was good and well organized. But to drop you in front of... More

Husband is a huge F1 fanatic, so our vacation this year was focused on his wish to see a race in their series. Neither of us had ever vacationed in Texas, so we used the week to see some of the beautiful Hill Country. We bought 3 day Turn 4 bleacher seats. Since we had a rental car and were... More

We have been there for the last five years for the F1 races. The track is beautiful and wherever you sit is great. There are plenty of vendors of all sorts to make it fun between races to go researching where you might like to sit for the next race, if you bring you own chair.

This was our 3rd visit to COTA to see the F1 grand prix. After pretty much getting rained out last year, we didn't expect too much this year die to the track losing money on the rain, but boy were we wrong!! There were more vendors, beer, and food than ever. Not to mention big screen upgrades and new track... More

This year was a great F1 event at COTA. After a disappointment rainout in 2015, the weather this year was excellent, and the entire race event was tremendous fun. To top it off we had a great race with lots of superb action.

My Boyfriend and myself are avid F1 fans and booked this trip back in March. We normally go to the Canadian Grand Prix but wanted to try a new experience. This is a very nice, state of the art track. The Canadian Circuit is flat and doesn't a great GA experience. However COTA is the opposite. I do have 2... More
