Circuit of the Americas has confirmed that all six general admission areas located around various parts of the track have now sold out.

The inaugural race at the brand new facility in Austin, Texas, is nearing completion for its November 18th race, round 19 of the 2012 championship.

According to Geoff Moore, chief marketing officer at COTA, tickets have been sold in each and every one of the 50 U.S. states as well as 37 other countries.

"Worldwide fan interest in the United States Grand Prix has been remarkable, with guests in every U.S. state and 37 foreign countries purchasing tickets since our public sales began three months ago," he said in a statement.

"We've allocated the maximum number of tickets we feel comfortable selling in our general admission areas to ensure guests who will be viewing the races from the grassy berms and numerous public spaces have a great experience and easy access to services and accommodations."

Grandstand tickets remain avaliable, though they too are selling fast with several grandstands already sold-out.

"Circuit of The Americas still has reserved seats available at a variety of price points in both grandstand and premium areas for fans who want the very best views we can offer," added Moore. "We encourage guests to buy tickets now while we have inventory and can accommodate them."
