Ticket prices for the United States Grand Prix in November have been confirmed, allowing fans to get a taste of Formula One for as little as $49.

F1 returned to the USA last November following a five year break, with the last race being held at Indianapolis back in 2007. However, the race at the Circuit of the Americas – the first track in America purpose-built for Formula One – welcomed bumper crowds and received rave reviews from drivers, teams and fans. On raceday, Lewis Hamilton claimed an impressive victory following a lengthy battle with eventual world champion Sebastian Vettel, and fans will be hoping for an equally exciting race in the second GP in Austin, Texas.

Tickets for the race start at as little as $49 for general admission on Friday for free practice sessions, with a one-day ticket for Sunday available for $129. For fans keen on staying in Austin for the entire weekend, three-day tickets begin at $169.

Individual day tickets go on sale on September 3rd, and are available fromĀ http://www.circuitoftheamericas.com/f1.

Besides the United States Grand Prix, COTA has hosted Moto GP, World Endurance Championship and V8 Supercar events. It is quickly becoming an icon in the motorsport world, and a second successful United States GP in November is only set to extend these credentials.

    Glad to see them finally offer one day tickets but I wish they’d do Friday/Saturday for $10-20 the idea should be to expose Formula 1 to as many people as possible.

      No, I’m pretty sure the idea is to recoup the $300M+ that they spent to build the track.

    Considering millions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies went to COTA to build the track, you’d think they would make it more affordable.

    I guess the jet setters from out of town can afford $129 per seat for one day, but a family of four cannot.

    And be aware there is very little shade at the track, and zero trees. This is Texas and November’s have been unseasonably warm for many years now. We tried to attend a race for the v8 australian supercars this summer and we fried. Then you get to pay 7 dollars for a bottle of water. People had plastered themselves to buildings just for the 6 inches of shade it provided. There is no way to get under the grandstands, so that is out of the question.

    Even the teams and drivers were trying to come up with ways to keep cool. It is fairly miserable with the heat.

    Oh and the walking is pretty intense, so come prepared. Hopefully we might get to see a race in the next decade or so, but not now. Perhaps they will plant trees, but with the severe drought we are experiencing there is no way they will grow. There is no grass out there either. It is all dirt and dust. Welcome to Texas y’all.

      First of all, ZERO taxpayer dollars went to build the track – please get your facts straight, this lie has gone on too long. Second, in November last year it was cool, enough to wear a jacket, in the morning and very nice the entire weekend – a picture perfect weekend IMHO.

      Why don’t you take your political agenda to the proper forum Jules? We are fans here…tyvm.

    Everything politicaljules said seems like 10 year old girl type whining. $129? Boo hoo. Work some OT, 129 is not unreasonable by a long shot you idiot
