This is the top of turn one at the Circuit of the Americas track they are building in Austin TX.



I toured it today and man was it mind-blowing. I can't count the goosebumps!!

I've seen the renderings of this track. it's going to be INCREDIBLE when they finally complete it. I wish I could afford to attend the first F1 race there. I'm sure they'll pick up an INDY date and some bike races too.

This is the front straight looking up to turn one (which was the first pic). 



This is from the end of the back straight. Which is just under a mile long. The grey area you see in the back is the beginning of the straight away. The surface undgulates and is has hills as well.
to put it in perspective. When they hit this turn in an f1 car they'll be doing 220mph. Gp bikes about 200.



And this is the rendering. Hope you all see the awesomeness that is about to incur in Austin TX!

Montreal is a great race.  I am heading up this year, but I really can't wait for NYC.  I am about 2 hours outside of NYC!!

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. :-[
