     So brace yourself as you’re going to learn everything you need to know about Formula 1® hospitality packages for the race at Circuit of The Americas™.

AN ESCAPE FROM THE ELEMENTSAn Escape From the Elements

     Hospitality venues are an escape from the elements of the race. Generally, the weather in Austin, Texas during November is rather mild, but with weather, you have to expect the unexpected. It’s impossible to know in advance if you are going to run into rain showers or if the heat will be overwhelming.

     With a hospitality venue, you’re guaranteed comfort. You are given the opportunity to escape the elements for a climate controlled venue, while still watching the race and getting some great inclusions.

The Inclusions 

     The inclusions that come with a hospitality venue take your Formula 1® experience to the next level. Inside the venue is a gourmet food buffet, soft drinks and a cash bar for premium beverages. Not to mention, there is closed circuit TV coverage of the race so you don’t miss a minute of the action.

    Additionally, depending on what package you choose, there is exclusive transportation to and from Circuit of The Americas™, so you don’t have to worry about traffic or driving. Plus, you get exclusive fast pass access, allowing you to skip the lines. You will even have an exclusive in-track shuttle, so if you picked a package with multiple turn seating, you can get there quickly instead of walking around the massive track.

     Finally, you can even select to have hotel accommodations included in your ticket package. It is impossible to get all these inclusions without a hospitality ticket package!
