It’s almost time for the spirit of Le Mans to take over Austin, Texas! In just a little over a month the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and the FIA World Endurance Championship will invade the Circuit of The Americas and kick-off the Lone Star Le Mans 2015. There are a few Official Ticket Packages left for the race weekend and one could be yours.
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.
Check out a few reasons why you should plan to be in Austin for the Lone Star Le Mans this September.
Official means OFFICIAL
Through Circuit of The Americas Experiences, our ticket packages come direct from Circuit of The Americas (COTA), so there’s no haggling or taking any risk in the secondary market. With tickets straight from COTA that also means tickets are OFFICIAL, no question about it! Because of our direct partnership with the circuit that means that you pay face value of the ticket; you never have to take the risk of overpaying again!
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!
Seating – Main Grandstand
Take advantage of Main Grandstand seating. Fans will be front and center of all the action and the winning ceremonies! Make sure you Instagram that! Experience the roaring of the powerful engines at the start and finish lines directly in front of seats. With incredible views of the pit lane, garages, finish line, winner’s podium, and Turn 1 there is no doubt Main Grandstand earned its spot in Premium Seating.
Premium Seating – 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 preferred among many avid racing fans since it’s 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 1 at Circuit of The Americas is unlike any other circuits around the world!
Premium Seating – Turn 15
I think it’s safe to say that everyone is a fan of multi-turn views. Turn 15 is a personal favorite among COTA fans as it does just that! 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. It has become one of the greatest vantage points at Circuit of The Americas.
