After a successful debut last season, the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas will once again host the U.S. Grand Prix for the Formula 1 Series in 2013. Joining F1 at the state-of-the-art road course are the GRAND-AM Road Racing Series, MotoGP and the North American debut of Australia’s V8 Supercars.
The Circuit of the Americas is a 20-turn, 3.427-mile road course, the first in the U.S. to be purpose-buil for F1. In addition to the track, the facility also includes the Grand Plaza, the Observation Structure and the Main Grandstand; another feature at the track is the Tower Amphitheater, with concert seating for 14,000. COTA has also qualified as a potential future X-Games site
The 2013 COTA schedule begins March 1st and 2nd with the inaugural GRAND-AM of the Americas, featuring the Rolex Series, the Continental Tire Challenge and the Pro Mazda Series. The Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas MotoGP event takes place April 19th through 21st, and the V8 Supercars debut takes place May 17th through 19th.
