In a press release, Circuit of the Americas, the host of the race, said “due to overwhelming demand, we have concluded sales of three-day general admission tickets.”
Chief Marketing officer at COTA, Geoff Moore, said “Worldwide fan interest in the United States Grand Prix has been remarkable, with guests in every U.S. state and 37 foreign countries purchasing tickets since our public sales began three months ago.
“We’ve allocated the maximum number of tickets we feel comfortable selling in our general admission areas to ensure guests who will be viewing the races from the grassy berms and numerous public spaces have a great experience and easy access to services and accommodations.
“Circuit of The Americas still has reserved seats available at a variety of price points in both grandstand and premium areas for fans who want the very best views we can offer. We encourage guests to buy tickets now while we have inventory and can accommodate them.”
This is a great success for the team at Austin, which will host the first Grand Prix in the USA since 2007, when Indianapolis’ contract expired without renewal.
F1 has failed to crack America yet, but these are the first signs that something may be changing on the other side of the Atlantic.
With tickets for three days selling for $155, it is no surprise they have been snapped up, as this is considerably cheaper than other circuits, including Silverstone.
With the circuit nearing completion, the penultimate round of the championship looks set to be a thrilling race in front of a packed crowd.
