The countdown is on for Circuit of The Americas’ Lone Star Le Mans Weekend. The event will be a Texas-sized celebration, including two of the world’s most-loved endurance racing series – the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and the FIA World Endurance Championship – along with racing from Porsche GT3 Cup series and Continental Tire Sports Car Championship. We’re getting close to the end with only two races left before the Lone Star Le Mans and three races before the grand finale race, Petit Le Mans.
In addition to the unique racing options offered at the Circuit, the weekend will also offer a variety of family-friendly entertainment options suitable for all ages. An open paddock and pit walk allow fans up-close access to the teams, drivers and race cars.
Through COTA Experiences, prepare yourself for unparalleled access to the Lone Star Le Mans in Austin. Official Ticket Packages come complete with premium seating in the hottest sections of the track and a dual ticket to access the Paddock Building for your exclusive on-site party.
You’re on the list!
That’s right, you read that correctly. You’ll have access to an EXCLUSIVE on-site party! With COTA Experiences you get access to the climate-controlled party venue, which offers a place to cool down from the Texas heat. Reunite with your group and catch up in the luxury of a private dining area in close proximity to your track seating at the Circuit and premium dual seating right in the Paddock Building.
The hospitality venue features gourmet food, premium bars, simulcast televisions, racing legend appearances, race simulators and interactive experiences.
Meet & Greets with the Greats

Hear stories from racing legends about all the greatest moments in racing history!
Your Thursday - Saturday Race Day views are open to the reserved areas in the Main Grandstand, Turn 1, and Turn 15 and extend to the Paddock Building on Friday & Saturday!
From the Main Grandstand fans will be front and center of all the action and the winning ceremonies. You’ll experience the roaring of the engines at the start and finish lines directly in front of your seats. You’ll have incredible views of the pit lane, garages, finish line, winner’s podium, and Turn 1.
Turn 1, the highest elevation on the circuit, gives fans some of the most impressive views, including the start/finish line, and the pit-out where pit row rejoins the track. This location is the the best place to see the world's most talented drivers tackle Circuit of The Americas' signature Turn 1. Drivers reach speeds of 200 mph as they navigate a 133-foot elevation change and a one-of-a-kind hairpin turn right after the start of the race.
Turn 15 is a personal favorite among avid racing fans. Watch as Endurance Racing drivers jockey for a position at speeds of 200 mph as they maneuver around some of racing’s trickiest corners. From Turn 15 grandstands, experience views of the DRS zone between Turn 11 & 12 and the chicane at Turns 13-16.
