Austin-area site obtained for US Grand Prix

Austin-area site obtained for US Grand Prix

Race promoters say they have secured a site to build a track for the new Formula One United States Grand Prix to be run in Austin, beginning in 2012.
Promoter Tavo Hellmund wouldn't disclose the Austin-area site nor its price, but he says it's "more than 700 acres." Hellmund also said the Tilke course architecture firm had been hired to design the venue.
Formula One officials made the surprise announcement Tuesday of the return of the revival of the United States Grand Prix, which hasn't been run since it was last held at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2007. The officials also announced the Austin track would be the first in the United States built specifically for a Grand Prix event.
