Circuit of the Americas

The Circuit of the Americas has announced its ticket prices for the United States Grand Prix, which returns to the calendar for the first time since 2007.

The organisers have held off publishing ticket prices until now, opting to instead push the sale of premium seat licenses.

Tickets go on sale on June 10th with the cheapest, three-day general admission passes, priced at $159 (£103). Tickets include shuttle buses from three central locations within Austin as the organisers look to reduce site traffic due to the single-lane access roads which are yet to be widened.

Grandstand tickets start at an affordable $269 (£175) for three-day access. Compare that to Silverstone's cheapest three-day ticket which is $351 (£228) or Australia which comes in at $324 (£210).

The grandstand tickets vary on price depending on where you choose to sit, with the most expensive areas located at turn 12, costing $499 (£324).

Main grandstand, turn one and turn 15 seats are reserved for those who have purchased seat licenses.
