Ready to buy tickets? Here are your options:
3-day General Admission
Soak up all the action just steps away from the track with this flexible ticket. Bring a chair or set out a blanket on any of the comfortable grassy hillsides, or move around and explore the Circuit to create your own personal viewing experience. Watch as drivers climb the 133-foot ascent of Turn 1, maneuver through the Esses, or attempt an overtake at Turn 15. Choose your own adventure — the viewing experiences are endless.
Get the best seats with the best views in the best locations with these tickets. Cheer with thousands of other screaming fans in the Main Grandstand, peer across the Circuit at its highest point at the legendary Turn 1, or soak up the most exciting moments of the Grand Prix at Turn 15. The Grandstands offer comfortable permanent chairs — each with seat backs and cupholders — as well as spectacular views not found anywhere else in the world and easy access to concessions, merchandise, and parking.
Located on the Main Straight right on top of the start and finish lines, Main Grandstand seating is the ultimate way to enjoy a MotoGP weekend. Hold your breath as drivers line up on the starting grid, cheer emphatically with thousands of screaming fans as a last-lap battle unfolds, and dart onto the track during Track Invasion to experience the shower of Champagne and confetti erupting near the podium. In addition to great views of the starting grid, pit lane, and team garages, the Main Grandstand sits right in the shadow of the iconic Turn 1, the vertigo-inducing left-hander that's challenged the greatest riders in the world since COTA was founded.
Turn 1 Grandstand
There's a reason Turn 1 has already become legendary: This menacing, 133-foot hill challenges riders like nothing else in motorsports and offers unbelievable views of most of Circuit of The Americas. From the highest point on the track, you'll see the start of the race and you'll watch as riders brake from almost 200 mph to maneuver this tricky corner lap after lap.
Turn 15 Grandstand
The stadium section awaits. Surround yourself with the most avid fans in MotoGP while you take in views of five of COTA's most challenging corners. The Turn 15 Grandstand gets you a stunning view of the back straight, where bikes reach speeds of over 210 mph before diving into Turn 12. Many races across many different series have been won and lost in this crucial sector of the Circuit.
There's no experience quite like sitting in Turn 12. From the end of the back straight, you'll watch as riders brake from over 200 mph as they dive into this sharp left-handed turn. It's a drag race won only by the bravest competitors, and it's yours to witness during the Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas. Turn 12 are bleacher seats (no seat backs or cupholders), but you are allowed you to bring your own seat cushion and seat backs to elevate your viewing experience.
Elevate your viewing experience with MotoGP hospitality packages. Sample some of the best local cuisine from award-winning chefs, cool down with a wide-array of drinks and premium bar service, and watch the white-knuckle racing action from some of the best vantage points around the Circuit.
