Über die Strecke

Circuit Of The Americas

Der Circuit Of The Americas ist die erste speziell gebaute Anlage für Grand-Prix-Rennen in den Vereinigten Staaten. Die 5,513 Kilometer lange Strecke befindet sich in der Nähe von Austin, Texas, und bietet Platz für 120.000 Fans. Der Bau der über 400 Hektar großen Anlage wurde Ende 2012 abgeschlossen und das erste MotoGP-Rennen wird im Jahr 2013 auf der Strecke stattfinden. Eine der größten Besonderheiten der Strecke sind die Höhenunterschiede von fast 41 Metern mit einer beeindruckenden Bergauf-Passage am Ende der Start-Ziel-Geraden, die in eine scharfe Linkskurve mündet. Die Strecke ist eine der vielfältigsten im GP-Kalender, mit einem Mix aus schnellen Geraden sowie engen Haarnadelkurven. Dabei wurde das Design der meisten Abschnitte von berühmten Strecken auf der ganzen Welt inspiriert. Entworfen wurde die Strecke vom deutschen Architekten und Strecken-Designer Hermann Tilke. Die Fahrtrichtung verläuft gegen den Uhrzeigersinn und beinhaltet insgesamt 20 Kurven mit 9 Rechtskurven und 11 Linkskurven.

Austin (TX), USA

The US has a fantastic motorcycling heritage - with great champions such as Kenny Roberts, Freddie Spencer, Eddie Lawson, Wayne Rainey and Kevin Schwantz being amongst the best riders to have ever competed in Grand Prix racing.

Why we love Texas and the USA

The sheer scale of the United States of America, including both overall landmass and the huge diversity between the 50 states stretching from the Atlantic to Pacific coasts, means it offers a wealth of experience and adventure to any visitor. The bigger cities - Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle - are all superb destinations. They offer a plethora of delights, from huge skyscrapers to big sports stadiums, an apparently endless choice of bars and restaurants, and some of the world’s best museums and galleries. The U.S. has many world-famous attractions and monuments including the White House, Disneyland, Time Square, The Statue of Liberty, the Vegas strip, Broadway, Hollywood Boulevard, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Empire State Building. If you want to get away into the great outdoors there is even more to see, from the Appalachian ranges to the Great Smoky Mountains; the mighty Rockies, the Everglades of Florida, and the Grand Canyon, to the Great Lakes, the Mississippi River or breathtaking Niagara Falls, Yellowstone and Yosemite National Park, and the huge wilderness of Alaska… Then there are the vast open rolling plains within states such as Kansas and Texas to discover…the list seems endless.

Finding the right accommodation

When in Texas many visitors head straight to the capital of the state, Austin, where there is an abundance of hotels on offer. In Austin one can find Hotels, but also Airbnb’s and personal apartments, at all price ranges. These larger hotels are complemented by a selection of downtown options, including exclusive boutique hotels and serviced apartments. Four-star hotels are available for a lower budget than the aforementioned five-star luxury accommodation, whilst there are cheaper options still with 3-star $55 / €50 per night hotels to be found in the city center too.

Exploring Austin and Texas

There is an energetic buzz about Austin, the Texan state capital which comfortably carries its title of ‘Live Music Capital of the World.’ In addition to hosting large music festivals, the city provides locals and visitors with the chance to enjoy excellent live music every night. You can also partake of great food at one of the city’s hundreds of restaurants, or tasty fast food joints, and the booming food-truck scene means it’s easy to grab a bite to eat when you are on the move. Meanwhile, Austin’s waterfront on the Colorado River is a pleasant place to be, and its state capitol building is the largest in the U.S. ‘Everything is bigger in Texas’ as the saying goes and the imposing 1888 built red granite Texas state capitol will make a good subject for your photo album. Elsewhere in Texas, Dallas and Houston have plenty to offer in terms of sightseeing, dining, arts, culture and partying. San Antonio laos has a lot going on, with its landmarks such as the River Walk, the Alamo and the Missions National Historical Park. Want to get outdoors?
