Formula 1 – The Only US Race Track

Circuit Of The Americas is a multi-purpose facility that will host the most prestigious racing events in the world, including the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix™. It is the first purpose-built Grand Prix facility in the U.S.

Built around a state-of-the-art 3.4-mile circuit track with capacity for 120,000 fans and an elevation change of 133 feet, the facility is designed for any and all classes of racing – from motor power, to human power.

Circuit of The Americas is ideally situated on a 1000-acre site in southeast Austin, approximately two miles from Austin Bergstrom International Airport, with scenic views of downtown.

For more information about events, housing and tickets please reach out to Michael Carpenter @ 512-522-6683. We look forward to seeing everyone the 15, 16 and 17th of November 2013 at the races!

 

Austin Votes to Make Slumlords Accountable!

The Austin City Council on September 26th, 2013 voted and passed unanimously to require multi-family and single-family rental properties to register with the city and be inspected regularly; if they are cited multiple times in one year. The goal of this proposal is to track the progress of repeat offenders of health-and-safety code violations so that they can avoid incidents like the 2012 collapse of a walkway at Wood Ridge Apartments.  Council Member Kathie Tovo also proposed a pilot program to require mandatory inspections of problem areas which was not passed and will be postponed to a later date after revisions have been made.
