The Cheapest Seat For The U.S. Grand Prix Is $159

Tickets for the United States Grand Prix in Austin went on sale today on Ticketmaster and on the COTA website. They tickets are expensive, but relatively cheap for what you get.

Here is the full list of prices for the three-day weekend, as confirmed by the Circuit of the Americas itself.

General Admission: $159
Grandstand - Turn 11: $269
Grandstand - Turns 2, 3, 4 and 5: $299
Grandstand - Turn 12 (lower rows): $399
Grandstand - Turn 12 (upper rows): $499

For a three-day pass of one of the world's biggest international sporting events, that's not a bad deal at all. It's certainly a lot cheaper than priority personal seating and, surprisingly, every single other Formula One Grand Prix in the calendar. That said, if you just wanted to see a more all-American open-wheel series, Indy Car would be a lot cheaper.
