Circuit of The Americas
USA Circuit

The Circuit of The Americas, or COTA as it is affectionately known, is the first purpose-built F1 facility in the United States and lies in Travis County, Texas, near Austin.

The original design of the 5.5km-long circuit was the brainchild of promoter Tavo Hellmund and former motorcycling World Champion Kevin Schwantz with Herman Tilke adding the finishing touches.

COTA, which runs anti-clockwise and has an elevation change of 41 metres, can host more than 120,000 spectators on a Formula One race day and also boasts state of the art multi-purpose venues.

Back to F1 and the 20-turn circuit finds itself with a steep, uphill run into the hairpin Turn 1 with the fast-flowing Turns 3 through 6 very similar to Silverstone's high-speed Maggotts/Becketts.
