How to Sign Up for Advance Ticket Sales to the U.S. Grand Prix at Austin

Circuit of the Americas Sets Up Waiting List for Ticket Sales


Circuit of The Americas has opened its ticketing process by launching its Select Seating Wait List for events at the track beginning with the 2012 United States Grand Prix to be held November 16-18, 2012. The select seating wait list is the first of two ticketing stages designed to help fans purchase seats.

The Circuit of the Americas has a two-stage ticketing process to help fans get the ticket that is right and affordable for them.

Select Seating Wait List

Obtaining a personal seat license is the first step. From Monday January 23, 2012 to Monday February 13, 2012, fans may join the Select Seating Wait List to be first in line to purchase a personal seat license, which will go on sale March 1, 2012. Personal seat licenses range in price from $1,000 to $5,000 per seat payable in two installments if desired, depending on proximity to the start/finish line and amenities.

A personal seat license entitles its holder to purchase tickets for all racing events at Circuit of The Americas for the next 15 years. The license also gives its holder a priority position to purchase tickets for entertainment events held at Circuit of The Americas for the duration of the license.

To be contacted about a personal seat license, fans can visit www.CircuitofTheAmericas.com, go to the Select Seating Wait List banner and register their contact information along with a $100 deposit.

Select Seating at the Main Grandstand

Select seating is focused on the main grandstand, which has approximately 9,000 seats in 26 rows. Along with a perfect view of the start/finish line and pit area, the state-of-the-art main grandstand seating provide fans with a number of amenities and extras, including:

      • Individual stadium seats
      • In-seat food and beverage service
      • Priority on-site parking

Select Seating at Turns 1, 15 and 16

The Turn 1 grandstand sits atop a dramatic 133 foot elevation and features the clearest sightlines for the track’s signature turn along with a view all the way to downtown Austin. The topography associated with Turn 1 makes it one of the most exciting features of the race course. The area between Turns 15 and 16 is home to the track’s Stadium Section grandstands. These seats will see the most up-close racing action and are located near the Grand Plaza, which features the highest concentration of food, beverage and merchandise amenities. Additional information regarding seating locations, availability and details regarding the rights and privileges available to personal seat license holders is available at Circuit of the Americas.

Individual Tickets

Individual tickets will be the focus of the second stage of ticketing. Individual event tickets to the 2012 United States Grand Prix will be offered for sale in early summer. Fans interested in buying uncovered grandstand or general admission tickets to this event should register their contact information at www.CircuitofTheAmericas.com and sign up for the Circuit’s email newsletter. No deposit for individual ticket registration is required.
