If you are looking for a fun-filled weekend just a short drive to the north, then this is the place for you. Not only does the Circuit of the Americas host the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix, but it is also a multi-purpose facility that has become the newest destination for premium sports and entertainment. In addition to the Formula 1 race, we highlighted some other activities that you can enjoy at the Circuit of the Americas.
Built around a state-of-the-art 3.4-mile circuit track with capacity for 120,000 fans and an elevation change of 133 feet, the facility is designed for any and all classes of racing – from motor power, to human power.
Far more than a racetrack, Circuit of the Americas is a world-class performance, education and business center that features racing-focused amenities including a private Motorsports Driving Club and a Karting Track; public spaces for private events, seminars and conventions and attractions that include an expansive live entertainment space, retail center and museum. There is also a center with research facilities and robust services and amenities to power a broad range of business, technology and education allies. For business professionals there is a 40,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art Conference/Media Center.
