As the Circuit of the Americas moves closer to its F1 debut, organisers have opened the ticketing process.
Starting on Monday, 23rd January and extending through to 13th February, fans wishing to attending the 2012 grand prix in Austin, Texas can join the Select Seating Wait List via the official website.
This will allow them to be first in line to purchase a 'personal seat license', which cost between $1,000 to $5,000 and entitle the holder to be given priority when purchasing tickets for all racing events at Circuit of The Americas for the next 15 years.
"We are receiving great interest in tickets every day from fans around the world," said Geoff Moore, chief marketing and sales officer for COTA.
"In order to effectively manage the demand, we have created a two-stage ticketing process to help fans better understand the opportunities available.
"We want every fan to get the ticket that is right and affordable for them. In this first stage, we are showing off the incredible entertainment experience our main grandstand offers."
The United States Grand Prix is scheduled to take place on 18th November.
