Circuit of the Americas Promotional Video circuit of the americas map 635x756

In case you missed yesterday’s big news, the Circuit of the Americas track (the new world class venue being built outside of Austin, TX) has signed a 10-year deal to host motorcycling’s premier racing series starting in 2013. Securing both MotoGP and Formula 1 right out of the gates is a huge coup for the Texan track, and the prospect of having potentially three American-based GP’s is tantalizing to any motorcycle enthusiast that bleeds red, white, and blue (we guess having F1 return to American soil is pretty cool too).

With less than 24 hours since its announcement, the Austin track has already thrown together a promotional video that outlines the circuit’s facilities, features, and of course whets our appetite for the 2013 Austin GP (or is it Texan GP?). Check it out after the jump, and be sure to clear out some space on your 2013 calendar.

    Looks good and very expensive for the average spectator. The track and facilities will be first class. Bernie Ecclestone will be sure of that. Will have to see what the total Austin package will look like. Will probably ride there next year for the F-1 race.

    The layout is intruging to say the least…what looks simple at first change dynamically when you look at it in 3d…wonder how they’ll decide to camber everything. Off camber chicanes anyone? 8^)

    I doubt we will see three GP’s on US soil in a year, bye bye Indy.

  5. J. Dock says:

    Well well well. Seems my house is about 20 minutes from the track.

    Whatever will I do? I just don’t know. :)

    They sure do plan to build it awfully quickly. As far as I can tell, all that’s there at the moment is a field of dirt.

    You just wait ’til our Aussie V8 Super Cars turn up and show you lot what real touring car racing is all about.
