The Circuit of the Americas in Austin has created a new spectacular infield viewing grandstand for this year's Aramco United States Grand Prix.

America's premier F1 race will enjoy its tenth running at COTA on October 23, and the circuit will celebrate the event with a festival-like agenda, but also with its new grandstand.

Located just after the famed esses or “S-Curves” of Turns 3-5, the new grandstand will give race fans a head-on view of the cars, just before they head uphill through Turns 6-8.

According to COTA, the new seats represent not only some of the nearest-to-the-action views, but also the rare opportunity to witness countless epic moments of the race from one spot.

This grandstand builds upon COTA’s unique and purpose-built design, which allows some guests to see as many as 8 turns from one seat.

"After years of ambition, this incredible location, something we’ve always hoped to add, is finally a reality," said COTA Chairman Bobby Epstein.

"It is one of several new fan-focused improvements, along with a new five lane road, 200 more front gate buses, 5 new shade tents, and a new 'quick serve' menu.

"This grandstand allows us to open an entirely new part of the campus to programming and enhanced offerings."

With all other reserved and 3-day admission tickets for this year's race - round 19 of the 2022 F1 World Championship - sold out already, the infield grandstands seats, which are now on sale, provide fans with one last chance to get at the center of the action.
