WHAT YOU’LL BE A PART OF

A driver is just a driver without a strong team behind them. At COTA, we’re all the hands on deck type. We know that what we do is laps ahead of other tracks and we’re determined to be the best in the business.

Circuit of The Americas is the premier destination for world-class motorsports and entertainment in the United States. Set on 1,500 acres in the rolling hills just outside downtown Austin, Circuit of The Americas has hosted the biggest names in racing, action sports and music since 2012. At its heart is a 3.41-mile racetrack that was designed to challenge the world's most exacting competitors while providing a thrilling spectacle for audiences.

The 20-turn, counterclockwise circuit takes advantage of the naturally undulating landscape, including an intimidating 133-foot hill at Turn 1 that must be seen in person to be believed. It is home to the only Formula 1 and MotoGP races in the country — the UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX and Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas — and has played host to ESPN's X Games, the FIA World Endurance Championship, IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, Pirelli World Challenge and more.

Nestled within the track is Austin360 Amphitheater, the largest permanent outdoor amphitheater in Central Texas, and its 251-foot signature observation tower. This unique treasure in the Live Music Capital of the World has hosted some of the biggest names in music and entertainment, including Texas icon Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffett, KISS, Nine Inch Nails, Kanye West, Kenny Chesney, Drake, Maroon 5, Muse, Kelly Clarkson and dozens more.

The Circuit also continues to be a leader in environmental awareness and sustainability, and has helped make advances in educational and scientific fields, including solar car technology, as well as racing and consumer automotive technology. And it's all just getting started. With plans for more world championship racing, new amenities, features and more events, COTA is set for excitement for years to come. For an experience as unique as Austin and a rush you'll never forget, come work with us at Circuit of The Americas — where exhilaration happens.
