Circuit of The Americas announced that tickets are selling quickly for the FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX™, set for Nov. 16-18, 2012, at the soon-to-be-completed center for premium sports and entertainment in Austin, Texas. Three-day reserved grandstand seats and general admission tickets went on sale today at 10 a.m. EDT and can be purchased online at www.cotausgp.com or by calling the Ticketmaster hotline at 800.745.3000.

Three-day general admission tickets are priced at an affordable $159 per person and let fans picks their views of the action on the track and around the Circuit—and change them throughout each event. General admission tickets allow spectators to roam among the numerous grassy berms and public areas surrounding the 375-acre Circuit designed by Tilke GmbH, the German architectural firm whose work on the world’s newest F1™ circuits has gained it worldwide acclaim.

Three-day reserved grandstand bleacher seats range in price from $269 to $499 per person and offer guests outstanding views from around the 3.4-mile racecourse, including Turns 2, 3, 4, 5, 11 and 12.  Prices for reserved grandstand bleacher seats vary by location and are detailed in the table that follows:

Seating Area Three-Day Ticket Price Per Person

Grandstand - Turn 11 $269
Grandstand - Turns 2, 3, 4 and 5 $299
Grandstand - Turn 12 (lower rows) $399
Grandstand - Turn 12 (upper rows) $499

All three-day reserved grandstand bleacher seats and general admission tickets include round-trip shuttle bus transportation from three designated park-and-ride locations in the greater Austin area. Shuttle bus pick-up/drop-off locations include the corner of 15th Street and Trinity Street in downtown Austin, the Travis County Fair and Expo Center at 7311 Decker Lane, and at a location in southeast Travis County that will be announced this summer.

“Based on our experience so far, it’s clear there is great demand for Formula 1™ racing in the United States,” Circuit Chief Marketing and Revenue Officer Geoff Moore said. “We anticipate all of our reserved seating areas will sell out quickly. We are pleased that fans around the world find our pricing attractive.  We look forward to hosting them in Austin this November for what will be an incredible Grand Prix celebration.”
