“A beautiful arena for MotoGP”

Circuit of The Americas
Ranked #13 of 336 things to do in Austin
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 June 2014

I've visited Mugello, Donnington, Silverstone, Laguna Seca and Barcelona for the MotoGP and I must say Austin is the best facility out of them all. However, the atmosphere was diabolical - nothing to do with the circuit but the lack of crowds. American's haven't fallen in love with MotoGP as the Europeans have. Facilities were top notch however having only one entrance makes it a hike to get from the car park to the circuit and you don't get as close to the action as say Mugello or Silverstone...

This was my second trip to COTA to listen to music. The 360 Amphitheater is a fantastic place. The first time, we sat in the regular seats, this trip, we sat in the lawn section.

A great spot to drink beer, be bare foot and listen to great music. Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Refeer Band were great.

The parking was easy to get into, tail gating at its best. The walk from parking lot A was only about 1/2 mile, but you can take the shuttle. The had plenty of bathroom facilities and the lines for food and drink were not long at all.
i highly recommend this location for your next concert.

Excellent event. They made excellent use of the track grounds and outdoor amphitheater. The lineup of entertainers was very with the highlights being Jeff Foxworthy & Tim McGraw. McGraw was the closer on Saturday night and had the crowd going wild. There is very little cover so bring sunscreen and if rain is in the forecast an umbrella. The parking lots are large and it's a good walk to the entrance so wear comfortable shoes. It was easy exiting the facility after the show. I understand they have other shows planned for the rest of the year. If I lived in Austin, I would be attend more. The F-1 races are in November and considering attending. Overall it was a great experience.

This is a state of the art racetrack. having had the chance to drive it, I can attest It is a very challenging course. Very technical. The facilities are great, I have attended 2 MotoGP races & one concert there. Food & drinks are expensive.
