Its 3.427-mile, counter-clockwise track presents an unusual challenge to drivers despite world-renowned designer Hermann Tilke taking inspiration for a number of its 20 corners from established F1 venues such as Silverstone, Hockenheim, and Istanbul. Featuring 133-feet of elevation change, its multitude of sixth-gear turns encourages high-speed overtaking while wider corners allow drivers to vary their racing lines, leading to even more on-track excitement. In 2013, the Circuit of The Americas will become the home of Australia’s V8 Supercars as well as the American Le Mans Series.
