Circuit of the Americas events
COTA is the only permanent Formula One track in the United States. Whilst internationally it’s best known for hosting the F1 and seeing the winners lift the US GP trophy, there’s actually a lot more big events held here.
MotoGP, Nascar Cup, Xfinity and Truck Series and the GT World Challenge are some of the other headline events.
In addition there’s a number of club road racing events held at COTA throughout the season. Plus there’s dozens of opportunities for amateur drivers and riders to get on track during HPDE or track days.
