Circuit of The Americas™ is a huge track with tons of seating areas, making it hard to figure out the best place to sit for the Formula 1™ race. It doesn’t help that ticket websites can get confusing with all the options they have available and their wordy descriptions. Sometimes we just want to see a picture!
So in my efforts to help you see where you would be sitting, I’ve compiled pictures of the different stands at different turns of the track so that you can make an informed and quick decision on what packages to purchase.
It’s time to put the car in drive and race forward to finding your seat for F1® at Circuit of The Americas™!
Views From The Main Grandstand
The Main Grandstand is right in the action. Located right below the stands is the start and finish line, not to mention the pit area. Sitting here, you would get to witness the fast changes of the pit crew, the start, and the finish. Not to mention, the Grandstand Big Screens cover the entire track action so you never miss a move. Also, your Hospitality Party Venue is located right around the corner, which gives you convenient access in between the racing action!
Views From Turn 1
Turn 1 is a great location to watch the race! The stands are elevated to 133 feet giving you a spectacular view of Circuit of The Americas™. This turn gives you the opportunity to see the starting line and the main straight, while being right at the Legends Club where you can meet racing celebrities and legends.

Packages with this turn also give you access to the Legends Club to meet some of racing’s biggest celebrities.
