Full Throttle Productions, race promoters for the American Grand Prix which will return to the calendar in 2012, have revealed the layout of the brand-new Austin, Texas circuit designed by German Hermann Tilke.
With Tilke being the favoured circuit architect of Formula 1 commercial rights holder Bernie Ecclestone and with the United States yet to host a Grand Prix since Indianapolis last did so in 2007, the upcoming race in Austin is expected to be staged around the month of June although the issuing of the 2012 calendar remains over a year away.
The anti-clockwise circuit, which features a selection of elevation changes, will contain a steep uphill climb leading to a left-handed hairpin as its first corner before plunging into a selection of curves which will require rapid changes of direction.
Another left-handed hairpin then loops the track back towards the pits, with a long back straight with a downhill gradient being followed by a Hockenheim stadium-like section plus a multiple-apexed, Istanbul Turn 8-esque corner before two more 90-degree left-handers – separated by a short straight – lead competitors back towards the start/finish area.

Silverstone has officially unveiled the brand-new circuit configuration which will play host to this year’s British Grand Prix. The Arena layout, which will involve competitors navigating a new loop between Abbey and Brooklands, will also be used for this year’s MotoGP race, which moves from Donington Park.
With the new section of track having been designed specifically for motorcycle racing, circuit owner the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) also elected to race Formula 1 on the new section, which will involve the lap time being increased and lap amounts therefore being decreased.
As well as the modified track, the Northamptonshire venue has also constructed a brand-new grandstand on the start/finish straight, overlooking a new run-off area suitable for MotoGP, and raised banking and seating areas at the Maggots/Becketts complex.
Silverstone has saved the British Grand Prix for the next 17 years BRDC president Damon Hill confirmed on Monday morning. The newly signed deal has ensured that one of the most historic races on the Formula 1 calendar retains its place in the sport.
At first Bernie Ecclestone signed a contract with Donington Park to host the British Grand Prix but the track failed to meet its obligations. At Silverstone the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) rushed into negotiations with F1 boss Ecclestone and after months of talking both Silverstone and Ecclestone can reveal they saved the future of the British Grand Prix for the next 17 years.
Speaking at the press conference BRDC president Damon Hill said: “It is not easy to enter into a contract of this magnitude and you have to take on a lot of responsibility, but the BRDC wanted this relationship to continue.
“Everyone was well aware that the British GP is not just a sporting event, but it is dynamo of the industry in this country. Losing it would have been damaging and perhaps there would have been no coming back.
“The title of Silverstone as home of motor sport has come true. It is a place for all motor sport. Everyone in the BRDC loves motor sport and we are looking forward to the MotoGP as well as the British Grand Prix.”
Hill furthermore revealed the deal was never going to be an easy one: “It’s not easy to enter into an agreement of this magnitude. It’s a big commitment. But the BRDC felt we wanted this relationship to continue, and we were prepared to back the negotiating team, with the level of risk satisfactory for the deal to go ahead.”
The survival of the British Grand Prix would appear to be looming as Silverstone bosses have announced that the Northamptonshire venue is close to signing a deal. Circuit owners have a fortnight on Wednesday in which to confirm a contract with Formula 1 commercial rights holder Bernie Ecclestone as signed and sealed.
With Wednesday 9 December highlighted as the date by which Silverstone must be ready to either accept or decline a deal, Richard Phillips is confident. “I don’t think there are any real stumbling blocks, we’re going through the last details of the deal.” the Managing Director of Silverstone Holdings explained to BBC Radio Northampton.
“I’m pretty convinced that it will be run at Silverstone next year. There is a lot of detail to go through, so if you make a mistake, there’s a long time to repent; you can come to high level agreements quickly but the devil is in the detail – we’re very, very close.”
With the now cash-strapped Donington Park having been granted a lease of 17 years due to start next season, Silverstone is unlikely to take on this although being host of the Grand Prix for the next decade is a definite target. “We certainly would like the contract to be for more than 10 years, that’s the minimum.” Phillips confirmed.
He added that Silverstone – despite knowing that Donington had won the rights to the event – has always been planning to host the race, should the Midlands circuit’s circumstances allow it. “We always had the faith that the Grand Prix would return.” he admitted. “We’ve been planning for more than a year – we’ll finish the track works in March and start on a new pits ready for 2011.”
