Texas Grand Prix ~ 2018

The Circuit of the Americas (COTA) debuted in 2012 and is already an F1 favourite. Dramatic natural elevation changes that reaches up to 40 meters offer great views to spectators, and a roller-coaster ride to drivers. The large venue holds an audience of over 120,000 fans and is surrounded by multi-functional amenities such as an outdoor live music space, conference centers and more. The 20 turns of COTA are inspired by iconic sectors from other circuits, such as Silverstone's Maggots, Hockenheim's Arena, and Istanbul's Turn 8. The uphill entrance to the hairpin Turn One has also made this unique corner a signature feature of this exciting circuit.
