Circuit of the Americas race track hits new milestone

Posted on: August 17th, 2012 by admin No Comments

At Hill Country RV Resort & Cottage Rentals, we are very excited about the Circuit of the Americas race track, which is under construction right now in Austin Texas. This facility will be finished in time for the Formula 1 USA Grand Prix November 16 through 18.

Last week construction crews laid down the final piece of the first layer of pavement on the 5.516 km track (about 3.4 miles). The process, called “marrying the track” connected turn 20 back through where the starting line will be placed up the hill to turn 1.

This is so exciting because this facility will host the most prestigious racing events in the world, right here in the Texas Hill Country. The state of the art track has room for 120,000 fans and will be located in Southeast Austin with views of downtown.

And luckily for our guests our resort is just a short drive up I-35 and you’ll be able to avoid downtown Austin traffic and the hassle of trying to book a high priced hotel in the city limits. You’ll be able to stay in your own RV as well! We’ll post more updates about the track as we get them, so keep up with the blog for more information. Call us at 830-625-1919 or visit our website to book your RV site or cottage rental today, and experience history watching a race in the only U.S. Formula 1 track.
