Circuit of the Americas (CoTA) is a 3.427-mile (5.515 km) motor racing circuit in an unincorprated area of Travis County, Texas, just outside of Austin city limits. It is the host of the Formula One United States Grand Prix. The circuit also hosts the Motorcycle Grand Prix of The Americas, a round of the Road Racing World Championship, commonly known as MotoGP, the FIA World Endurance Championship, as well as the Tudor United SportsCar Championship. It previously hosted the Australian V8 Supercars series, the American Le Mans Series, and the Rolex Sports Car Series in 2013.
The circuit and Grand Prix were first proposed in the middle of 2010. The circuit was the first in the United States to be purpose-built for Formula One. The layout was conceived by promoter Tavo Hellmund and 1993 Motorcycle World Champion Kevin Schwantz with the assistance of German architect and circuit designer Hermann Tilke, who has also designed the Sepang, Shanghai, Yas Marina, Istanbul, Bahrain, Yeongam, and Buddhcircuits, as well as the reprofiling of the Hockenheimring and Fuji Speedway.
A crowd of 117,429 watched the Formula One race in November 2012.
