Circuit of The Americas is more than a race track – it is the only purpose-built facility in the United States designed to host the premier motorsports championships in the world, including Formula One, MotoGP, the FIA World Endurance Championship and the Tudor United SportsCar Championship. With a blend of sweeping, fast sections and tight, technical corners, Circuit of The Americas has challenged the world’s greatest drivers and riders. Set on 1,500 acres in the rolling hills just outside downtown Austin, Circuit of The Americas has hosted the biggest names in racing, action sports and music since 2012. At its heart is a 3.41-mile racetrack that was designed to challenge the world's most exacting competitors while providing a thrilling spectacle for audiences. The 20-turn, counterclockwise circuit takes advantage of the naturally undulating landscape, including an intimidating 133-foot hill at Turn 1 that must be seen in person to be believed. It is home to the only Formula 1 race in America — the UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX — as well as ESPN's X Games, MotoGP, the FIA World Endurance Championship and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and more. Nestled within the track is Austin360 Amphitheater, the largest permanent outdoor amphitheater in Central Texas, and its 251-foot signature observation tower.
