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 from 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.
