BE SURE TO MARK YOUR CALENDARS TO RESERVE YOUR TICKETS!!!!
To help get a better sense of the pricing I found a press release here - http://www.formula1blog.com/2012/06/05/austin-gp-ticket-prices-are-here/
We hope to see our NYC area race fans there! Huge hat-tip to Uchendu for bringing it to our attention!
Here is a short exert of the release:
"Three-day general admission tickets are priced at an affordable $159 per person and allow fans to choose their views of the action from several grassy berms and spacious public areas surrounding the 375-acre state-of-the-art facility designed by Tilke GmbH, the famed German architectural company known for its work on signature F1™ circuits. Three-day reserved grandstand bleacher seats range in price from $269 to $499 per person and offer guests spectacular views from vantage points around the 3.4-mile racetrack, including Turns 2, 3, 4, 5, 11 and 12.
Prices for reserved grandstand bleacher seats depend on location and are detailed in the table that follows (see supplemental table with comparable 2012 Grand Prix grandstand reserved seating pricing on page 3). All three-day reserved grandstand bleacher seats and general admission tickets include round-trip shuttle bus transportation from three designated park-and-ride locations in the greater Austin area. Shuttle bus pick-up/drop-off locations include the corner of 15th Street and Trinity Street in downtown Austin, the Travis County Fair and Expo Center at 7311 Decker Lane, and at a location in southeast Travis County that will be announced this summer."Seating Area Three-Day Ticket Price Per Person 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
