“Fantastic venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

was here during Redfest and toured this huge site. Excellent track and concert venue. The amphitheatre style seats and grass, along with tables and sitting along the sides as well is a great design. Also has lots of flat grassy areas for activities and relaxing. Parking lots are huge with exits from 2 directions for efficient exiting.
Very spacious even considering vendors, food stalls, bathrooms etc etc and their lineups.

I highly recommend visiting here for F1 in November or any other event!!

One caution is shade hard to find anywhere. Camping may be fun but could be steaming hot early.

Could be lots of walking while here, appropriate dress and footwear could be key for ensuring an outstanding experience

Beer was $10, reasonable vendor food was about 10$-12$ per serving....hot dog about $5. Small pizza $12. I ate from contracted vendors, all were very good.

This is so awesome to be able to watch F1 races in Austin TX of all places. It brings back such great memories as a kid growing up in Europe thanks to the US Army.

“Awesome track to be a spectator and fan.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

I have been to about a dozen or so Grand Prix races in Montreal which is always a great time, however the track in Austin for the US Grand Prix is absolutely fantastic. This is the second visit to this race for myself and freinds. The track designers have given the fans lots of space to move around and there is plenty of desireable general admission seating. Try the BBQ turkey legs. The grandstand which we sat in gave a complete 360 degree view of the entire facility which is hard to find at other venues. Anyway the tickets were reasonable for the three days and the crowd was really enthusiastic, great way to see Austin at its most hospitable.

“Lots of great viewing spots all over”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

Had general admission tickets for the 2013 F1 USGP. Fantastic venue! Lots of great locations all over the track to watch the action. Going back this year. Also, parking was an original concern of mine. I opted for the remote lot (Lot Q) which required a shuttle to the track (drops off at turn 11). There were tons of buses running back and forth so the wait was minimal. From the lot to the track was almost immediate. Leaving the track w/ larger crowds waiting to depart was no more than 15 minute waits to board a bus. Definitely a good trade-off of expense vs. convenience.
