Circuit of the Americas today released prices for three-day tickets to a Formula One race planned for November.
General admission seating, which will allow people to choose from several grassy berms and other public areas around the circuit, will be $159 per person.
Reserved grandstand seating at turns 2, 3, 4, 5, the hairpin 11 and 12, will be $269 to $499. All tickets include round-trip shuttle service from parking garages downtown, the Travis County Exposition Center in Northeast Austin and another location in Travis County that will be announced this summer, officials said.
Tickets will go on sale at 9 a.m. central June 10, officials said, through www.circuitofheamericas.com/tickets
“We received fan input from extensive customer surveys and through market research from other Grands Prix and comparable premier, international, multi-day sporting events,” said Geoff Moore, the circuit’s chief marking and revenue officer. “In the final analysis, we wanted to make this event affordable to F1 fans around the country.”
Travis County judge Sam Biscoe today approved a mass gathering permit
for organizers to host the race, planned for Nov. 16 through 18.
The circuit is currently under construction in southeastern Travis County, and officials expect to have it completed in time for the first race.
