The Circuit of the Americas is well on its way to being completed in August, right on schedule, organisers have revealed.
The US Grand Prix was thrown into doubt last year when race organisers and F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone were unable to agree on the financial details of the deal. The conflict caused construction on the track to be halted for a number of weeks and it was only after a last-minute resolution was found in mid-December that construction was restarted.
However, with the race date shifted from June to November, it appears that the break in construction will not prove costly, with the track expected to be finished months in advance.
"The race is on. Construction is happening six days a week," Circuit of the Americas sales officer Geoff Moore told Autosport.
"The paddock buildings are being topped off, work on the main grandstand has started and we are looking at mid-August for completion."
