The city of Austin hosts the United States F1 Grand Prix and it promises to be both an engine and heart throbbing experience to watch. Circuit of the Americas (COTA), first opened its doors in 2012 and sparkles with modern facilities and an inspiring track. With 20 turns, a steep, uphill run that goes into the hairpin at Turn One and dramatic changes in elevation, it invites drama and challenge at every corner.
Austin is one of the coolest cities in North America, with a vibrant music and nightlife scene. You will not be disappointed in the atmospheric delight in this charming American city, so different from some of the other large metropolis one would expect to find in Texas. Sixth Street is the place to go if you are in search of popular bars, restaurants and city night life. Or, for the more relaxed and softer feel of Texas, head outside the city, straight to the rural retreats and country air.
The F1 Paddock Club in Austin is where hospitality excels; this is where elegance meets style, where luxury meets extravagance and all within the heady melting pot of Formula One racing.
