Circuit of The Americas announces on-sale date and pricing for 2012 FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX™ reserved grandstand bleacher seats and general admission tickets
Three-day tickets to prestigious international event start at $159 and include round-trip shuttle service

Austin, Texas (June 5, 2012)– Circuit of The Americas today announced the date when members of the public can purchase three-day reserved grandstand bleacher seats and general admission tickets to the FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX™, set for Nov. 16-18, 2012. The soon-to-be-completed center for premium sports and entertainment in Austin, Texas, will host the return of the world-famous Formula 1™ racing series to the United States for the first time in five years. Three-day reserved grandstand bleacher seats and general admission tickets to the highly anticipated event go on sale Sunday, June 10, at 10 a.m. EDT, at www.CircuitofTheAmericas.com/tickets.

Three-day general admission tickets are priced at an affordable $159 per person and allow fans to choose their views of the action from several grassy berms and spacious public areas surrounding the 375-acre state-of-the-art facility designed by Tilke GmbH, the famed German architectural company known for its work on signature F1™ circuits. Three-day reserved grandstand bleacher seats range in price from $269 to $499 per person and offer guests spectacular views from vantage points around the 3.4-mile racetrack, including Turns 2, 3, 4, 5, 11 and 12.

Prices for reserved grandstand bleacher seats depend on location and are detailed in the table that follows (see supplemental table with comparable 2012 Grand Prix grandstand reserved seating pricing on page 3). All three-day reserved grandstand bleacher seats and general admission tickets include round-trip shuttle bus transportation from three designated park-and-ride locations in the greater Austin area. Shuttle bus pick-up/drop-off locations include the corner of 15th Street and Trinity Street in downtown Austin, the Travis County Fair and Expo Center at 7311 Decker Lane, and at a location in southeast Travis County that will be announced this summer.

Seating Area Three-Day Ticket Price Per Person
General Admission $159
Grandstand - Turn 11 $269
Grandstand - Turns 2, 3, 4 and 5 $299
Grandstand - Turn 12 (lower rows) $399

“Formula 1™ fans and motorsports enthusiasts around the world have eagerly anticipated this news, and we’re excited to launch public ticket sales for our inaugural event in the next few days,” Circuit Chief Marketing and Revenue Officer Geoff Moore said. “We have options to fit every pocketbook.

“Information provided by the public was crucial as we finalized prices for the 2012 FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX™. We received fan input from extensive customer surveys and through market research from other Grands Prix and comparable premier, international, multi-day sporting events. In the final analysis, we wanted to make this event affordable to F1 fans around the country. Whether they want a reserved seat or the freedom to explore our expansive facility with a general admission ticket, they will enjoy great views and amenities.”

FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX™ tickets go on sale Sunday, June 10, 2012, at 10 a.m. EDT. To select and purchase tickets, fans should visit www.CircuitofTheAmericas.com/tickets, www.ticketmaster.com (use the search terms “Circuit of The Americas” or “Formula 1 United States Grand Prix”), or dial the Ticketmaster hotline,800.745.3000, to review available options.

Customers interested in premium seating options, such as personal seat licenses with season tickets and on-site parking, can submit information through the “Tickets” section of Circuit’s official website and will be contacted by a sales representative for more information.

Anyone tried to setup a Corral like nasioc did several times at Indy for the USGP. They met away from the track and got an escort into the track.

I used Airbnb to book an apartment. Seems safer than Craigslist, we'll see how it goes!

Since you are looking for an area in Austin, the main one there is the site Homeaway.

Vintage Formula 1 racing will happen the same weekend as the 1st Formula 1 race at COTA this Novemeber.

http://www.statesman.com/sports/form...s-2402837.html


Quote:
The world's fastest museum will be coming to Austin.

The Historic Grand Prix, which features Formula One cars from the 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s, will be a support race at Austin's U.S. Grand Prix, which will be Nov. 16-18 at Circuit of the Americas.

"It's not a parade. It's not a show. It's a real race," said James King, the director of the series. "If form holds true to previous events, we'll have 25 to 30 cars, maybe more than 30."

The cars, from F1's golden era, can have top speeds of 180 mph and range in value from $250,000 to $2 million, depending on the manufacturer and the driving pedigree. King estimated it costs $15,000 to $25,000 just to prepare one for the weekend, which typically would have qualifying and a 30-minute race.

King said that, if circuit officials ask, some of the cars might arrive a week early for display.

"Historic Grand Prix is a great complement to the USGP, as it allows our fans to see the technical and innovative progression of Formula One racing cars," said Bruce Knox, the circuit's executive vice president.

Among the series' more notable cars, Knox said, are Mario Andretti's Lotus 79 that won the 1978 World Driving Championship, Niki Lauda's 1976 Ferrari 312-T2 that finished second in 1976 and was part of his 1977 world championship, and Gilles Villeneuve's 1980 Ferrari 312-T5.

The Historic Grand Prix has been around for about a decade, and King said the newest addition to the field is a Shadow with a Matra V12 engine that makes a distinctive sound.

"It's a pretty unique car. There's none in the United States except for this one," he said.

King is in Europe and headed for the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where he'll drive a Lotus 79 and a Brabham from the days when F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone owned that team.

King said Ecclestone, who has a large collection of F1 cars, has been supportive of the series. He said the drivers were excited to be included in the U.S. Grand Prix because it's their home grand prix and a new track.

King said his group will have a block of about 90 rooms at the Sheraton downtown.

"We haven't organized any pre-race events yet, but for sure we'll be doing something," he said.
