| , RacinToday.com Thursday, June 21 2012


Circuit of The Americas officials have released thousands of additional reserved seats for November’s inaugural Formula 1 United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.

The approximately 15,000 seats are located in two grandstand bleacher sections at Turn 9 and Turn 11 West. Turn 9 slopes toward Turn 10 – second-highest elevation point of the 3.4-mile circuit – and will give fans an unobstructed view of the cars as they speed downhill towards Turn 11.

Turn 11 West will feature views of the cars as they rush down the hill from Turn 10 at projected speeds of 180 mph to take the Turn 11 hairpin before accelerating full-throttle down the track’s longest straightaway.

Three-day reserved grandstand seats at Turn 9 are priced at $299 per person, while Turn 11 West tickets are available for $269 per person. The additional reserved seats are on sale now at www.cotausgp.com or by dialing the Ticketmaster hotline at 800.745.3000.

“We continue to be amazed by worldwide fan interest in our inaugural Formula 1™ event and have listened to our customers’ requests for additional reserved seating options,” said Julie Loignon, COTA’s vice president of public and community relations. “Within one week, we sold out the reserved seating sections located at Turns 2, 3, 4, 5, 12 and Turn 11 East. Our seating plan offers us the flexibility to make adjustments based on customer demand, and we are pleased to offer additional grandstand seating in areas that offer great views of the action.”

The FIA United States Grand Prix at COTA will be contested Nov. 16-18, marking the return of F1™ racing to this country for the first time in five years. Customers interested in premium seating options, including personal seat licenses with season tickets and on-site parking, can submit information through the “Tickets” section of the Circuit’s official website and will be contacted by a sales representative for more information. Circuit of The Americas sales representatives are available Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (CDT) at 512.301.6600.

Additional information about grand prix transportation and travel packages, facility hours of operation, special events/entertainment and items permitted inside Circuit of The Americas during the race weekend will be announced in the coming weeks.

Upon completion, Circuit of The Americas will be the first purpose-built F1 facility in the United States designed for any and all classes of racing, from motor power to human power. COTA’s master plan features a variety of permanent structures designed for business, education, entertainment and race use. Its signature element will be the 3.4-mile road-course with seating for 120,000 fans.
