Been coming since the first F1 race and we'll probably keep coming back. Great track with excellent facilities. Design limits watching the races from a variety of view points and the Texas heat will always be a factor. Expect high prices for food and beverages. Parking too far from gates to be practical for tailgating.

Please bring your own battery backup, as the Main Grandstand, with exclusive seating, does not have WiFi. Austin claims to be the Tech Capital of Texas, and it is embarrassing not to have cloud based services for guests. Also, there are no charging stations like at the airport.

A recent trip to this venue for the Le Mans WEC race left a great impression. Clean facilities for media and general guests were much appreciated. Colorful tracks, well-spaced stands, balanced venue with plenty of space to roam or relax for a race.

We have been to a lot of big league race tracks so we know a thing or two about them. We have wanted to see COTA since it opened. We love F1 but after we read about the way “regular fans” were treated at those races we decided to go to the track to see the WEC cars along with... More

I've been to a lot of F1 tracks around the world and some top race tracks in the US. This one has a great layout, wonderful seating options to view all the action but has some serious drawbacks. First of all, as others have mentioned there is VERY LITTLE SHADE anywhere on the campus. It will be HOT so bring... More

This is a multip-purpose venu, that was primarily a race track. Despite the controversy of the State kicking in $25 million to build it (for a multi-millionaire from England, no less), the venue has some good things. The parking is okay. Be prepared for REALLY long lines to get in and out. If you event offers paid parking, she'll out... More

This track is great for spectators with most stands offering great views of different sections of the track. It's bleaching hot, so bring your hat and sunscreen. The bad news is that the track complex is a looooong way from Austin and accomodation near the track leaves you with close to zero dining options. Lots of taxis ply the route... More

600+ Corvettes! Great show, tremendous facility! We were able to watch sports cars run time, visit many vendors. parking was easy and the track is easy to get too, very close to the toll way which we took back to San Antonio.

My family and I went to watch Moto GP and were pleased overall with the experience. We did have to park far away even though we had VIP tickets. There are shuttles to take you around, however. The wait for these very crowded shuttles during this event was sometimes 15 minutes or so, so we would end up walking instead.... More
