Circuit of the Americas

Post by Lawndart » Mon Aug 20, 2012 1:13 am

My last two trips I've gone through Austin and every time you depart runway 17L on the Centex Four departure you get a spectacular view of Circuit of the Americas being built only a few miles south of the airport. While overflying the track it jogged my memory that I still had these photos from a few months ago. I'll try to get some newer ones next time maybe... there's been a lot of work done since then. The track design has really come together, and it's clear that this will be a phenomenal venue... very soon.

Paving is all done... those pics are almost five months old. I was out there at some point within the last month and they're finishing up berms and structures around the track. It's fascinating to watch it all grow simultaneously across the entire curcuit...

The race is less than two months away! :D

My understanding is that the elevation changes are going to be some of the best of any F1 circuit! I also heard over the weekend that they are almost sold out for the race in November.

FIA has added New Jersey to the schedule for next year also... Street circuit! I'm glad to see F1 adding two races in the US after so many years of F1 drought here...
