The long anticipated first event will be held at the new Circuit Of The Americas facility in mid November and it will be FORMULA 1. Circuit of The Americas is MUCH more than an event center. It’s the only purpose-built facility in the U.S. to host the FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX™ through 2021. It will also host V8 SUPERCAR events starting in 2013 and running through 2018. It’s the only FIA-certified Grade 1 track in the United States, and one of only 26 in the world. It comes with a state of the art convention and business center along with a large live music venue and expected to ad Millions of dollars to the annual economy of the Austin Area.
