Welcome to COTA Experiences

What is COTA?

Circuit of The Americas (COTA) is a 1,500-acre sports and entertainment complex in Austin, Texas with the only purpose-built Grand Prix facility in the United States.


The one-of-a-kind venue
is home to THE FOLLOWING:

  • Prestigious motorsports events from Formula 1 to MotoGP to INDYCAR


  • Largest outdoor amphitheater in Central Texas with a capacity of 14,000


  • An infield "Super Stage" that hosts post-race concerts with global superstars 


  • Unique driving experiences that put fans behind the wheel


  • An iconic 250-foot tall observation tower that offers spectacular views of The Circuit


  • A Winter Wonderland holiday festival


  • Austin Bold FC of the United Soccer League


Circuit of The Americas is located in Austin, Texas just south of the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and approximately 20 minutes from Downtown Austin.


A 2018 study conducted by MagnifyMoney listed Austin as the top-ranked "Boomtown" in the United States, based on industry growth, population/housing increase, and employment opportunity increase.


5 of the top 11 and 6 of the top 25 boomtowns are in Texas, with Austin centrally located between them all:


  • Dallas (7)
  • San Antonio (9)
  • McAllen (10)
  • Houston (11)
  • El Paso (24)

COTA Karting

Recently launched during the USGP in 2017 and inspired by the Formula 1 circuit, the nearly
mile-long karting track at Circuit of The Americas features 15 turns of pure adrenaline and a driving experience unlike any other.


COTA Karting is opened year-round and offers racing leagues for all ages, up to 55-mph carts, and private track rentals for parties and corporate events.


New to 2019 is the 'Soaring Eagle' zipline that sits on a hill directly above COTA Karting, making the entrance to the Main Grandstands a true thrill zone for visitors.
