Meanwhile things are going swimmingly in Austin.




Due to an overwhelming demand two grandstands have been added to facilitate it.



Here are the locations of the additional grandstands, which CotA says are available now at $285 for 11 and $315 for 9 for all three days.


Turn 9 and Turn 11 West will be offered as Grandstand bleacher seating. These two extremely unique turns offer outstanding views of Formula 1 racing!

Turn 9 slopes toward Turn 10 (the second highest elevation) and gives an incredible view of the cars as they speed downhill towards Turn 11.

Turn 11 West is the perfect location to spot overtaking cars as they rush down the hill from Turn 10 at speeds of 180 MPH to take the hairpin Turn 11 before accelerating full throttle down the longest straightaway on the track.
Historic Grand Prix, a series that features classic Formula One cars raced by private owners, will be a support race during Novemberís planned F1 race near Austin, circuit officials said today.

The series is the first support race announced for the weekend of Nov. 16 through 18.

Formula One races generally have several support series as part of a full day of events. Other series are possible during race weekend, circuit spokeswoman Ali Putnam said, though she could not say what else was planned.

Thanks! The following pics have me slightly perplexed. They have built something that will be the pit lane, that I'm trying to put a name on. Perhaps this is part of a drainage system; however it looks like a keyed footing that is too high up into the terrain, and out of place.

“We have experienced incredible demand for reserved grandstand seating tickets, and customers have quickly purchased our available inventory,” Circuit Vice President of Public and Community Relations Julie Loignon said. “As such, we are considering installing more reserved seats between Turns 9 and 10 and between Turns 11 and 12 in place of other types of seating that had been planned for those areas. We will release more information about new grandstand inventory and when additional reserved seats might be available for purchase as soon as possible.
“We continue to see steady sales of personal seat licenses with premium seating and on-site parking at the Circuit,” Loignon added. “We are extremely pleased with how things are going overall, since our public ticket sales began less than a week ago.”
The FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX marks the return of the F1™ racing series to the United States for the first time in five years. To purchase three-day tickets to the event, visit Buy your 2012 F1 US Grand Prix tickets now or call the Ticketmaster hotline at 800.745.3000.

To me, it looks like it's angling up towards the building. Maybe the toe/base of a grand stand.

Usually Free-stack retaining walls have a continuous lap for evenly absorbing pressure. The thing about this southwest motif wall is that it appears to be being built flush to the plumb-sticks effectively creating the type of stress-joints you find in concrete walls. I believe that possibly this wall is built for repair in order to avoid more stringent building codes for the former.



Circuit Of The Americas -rFactor Quick Lap - YouTube

I have a feeling this course is going to border on the insane as far as judging it from a drivers perspective. Look at the immense technicality of the first corner alone, wide, with different cambers along the road, that alone is a huge setup challenge. Not to mention the abrupt undulations as well as the lack of clearly defined apexes plus elevation changes, in addition to it's high speed nature will definitely push drivers from a mental standpoint.
I guess we will see in a few months

It looks like a real challenge - I would be very keen to go for a gallop around this track on my 900SS - or just about anything else for that matter...
