Circuit of the Americas
The US Grand Prix takes place at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) track, which is about 30 miles from the heart of Downtown Austin. Acronis has arranged transportation to and from the racetrack Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Our bus will provide our guests with necessary transport throughout the weekend – this includes airport runs on Sunday after the race. Your Formula 1 hosts will help ensure you don’t need to use Uber or Taxis during the weekend, but in the off-chance you do, here are additional transportation details for COTA.
Ride share and Taxis drop off and pick up from McANGUS Road (see the map below). Note this is about a mile walk from the race track. For reference, our seats are at Turn 1 and 15 and the main entrance is near Lot A.

The US Grand Prix offers fans a unique musical experience following qualifying and the race with two concerts from the biggest names in entertainment.

Acronis guests have the option of going back to the city via our bus following qualifying on Saturday or staying for the concert. No matter your choice, we will provide transportation. Note your F1 ticket provides you access to the concert, which takes place in the middle of the race track
On Sunday, Oct 21, 2018, Brittney Spears will perform at 6pm
We know there are some guests traveling home following the US Grand Prix. Our bus will make an airport run right after the race for those guests needing to head out and then will drop off at our hotel for those not wanting to stay for Brittney Spears. For those guests that stay, the bus will take us back following the concert.
Things to do in Austin
Austin is the capital of Texas and is known for live music and BBQ. There are plenty of things to do besides Formula 1 while you’re in town.
+ Check out 6th street – where nearly every bar has live music
+ For another side of Austin’s nightlife, check out Rainey Street – the cottages turned restaurants & bars are very unique
+ Visit the various Food Truck Parks – Austin is second in the US for Food Trucks per capita and it’s a great way to explore the various cuisine in a one-stop-shop
The Sheraton Austin at the Capital is the hub for the weekend’s activities. A majority of the guests are staying here and this is where the bus will pick up and drop off. The hotel does have on-site parking for those local attendees. If you are staying elsewhere, please be sure to meet up with the group at the Sheraton for bus pick up. If you have any questions, contact your Formula 1 host.
