I can't wait to go see MotoGP there!
I bet the top of that turn is the tallest hill in Austin.  ;D

Here's a virtual lap around the track.


In related news, I'm ordering my ticket tomorrow morning. $170 for the weekend. I wasn't going to go but It happens that I'll be in Houston that entire week. Hooray for me!  ;D

I wanted to ask is there any elevation changes or is it flat as a pancake?

LOTS of elevation change. The front straight goes uphill 133' before hitting a lefty hairpin and a downhill run into a fast turn. Here's an elevation map of the track:

That looks like a LOOOoooooooong back straight.  :o
There is going to be some high speeds seen there, 8) and some epic wipeouts after brake fade, late in the race. :-[

General admission (sitting on the grass, but actually most likely dirt in November North Texas) ticket was $182 after ticketmaster fees. Grandstands started at $275 and exceeded $520 for the best seats.

These prices are pretty close to the Canadian GP.  It’s the unadvertised fees that are the killer.  It was about $500 per ticket after fees and taxes for “silver” level grandstand tickets to Canada.  Probably $100 of that was the tax and fees.

Well, the race sold out. I'm glad I bought my ticket during the pre-sale. Looks like they're going to add more seating in turns 9 and 11 to accept the high demand for tickets. I'm debating where to sit and when to arrive for the best view with my general admission pass.
