US Formula One Grand Prix

Race Day: 21st October

The 7th US Grand Prix takes place in the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin Texas. Circuit of the Americas (COTA), is an innovative World-class destination situated on 1000 acres of ground, the US Grand Prix track’s elevation offers striking views of Downtown Austin.

Austin is a laid-back city with lots to do and see.  You can take a trip to Barton Springs Pool for a swim in the natural spring or head to SoCo for an eclectic array of shops and boutiques where you’ll find one of a kind, vintage artwork and jewellery pieces. In the evening you will be spoilt for choice, the city is alive with local bands playing all kinds of music from jazz-funk and acoustic rhythms to Latin Sambas. Also, Austin is famous for its large selection of restaurants serving up cuisine from all around the world!

If you want o explore the rest of Texas, we can suggest a number of different options. Alternatively if you have a different itinerary in mind, it would be our pleasure to tailor make a 2018 American Grand Prix package, please contact us for further details.
