Or maybe you’re planning on attending your first race and you want to make sure you don’t miss any of the action. Well, Circuit of The Americas Experiences has granted those wishes!
Circuit of The Americas is a huge track – that’s no secret! The track is 3.4 miles of twists and turns that you don’t want to miss. All of the stands offer great views of this fast paced action, but each one offers a different view. For example, you could be in Turn 12 and be completely oblivious to what is happening at Turn 5! Granted, there are big screens so you can keep up with the action, but when you’re attending the race, you want to see it!

However, from the lower part of the stands, you can get up close view of the drivers as they maneuver the twists and turns.
Turn 15 allows you to see the true power of a Formula 1™ car. As the cars exit the turn, they accelerate in a matter of seconds and you get to see the action up close! This Turn is also located next to the Grand Plaza.
