The COTA boss sees Formula 1 growing in popularity in America

Formula 1 has become increasingly popular in recent years. In fact, the popularity of motorsport’s premier class has grown to the point where it has a foothold in America. The great country had been an almost inaccessible place for years, but now everything was different.

Its growing popularity is due in part to the Netflix series Drive to Survive. The sport is so popular in America that next season there are three American Grands Prix on the calendar. Miami and Las Vegas will join the race on the now established circuit of America. The Miami Grand Prix was first on the calendar this year and Las Vegas will return next year.

It is observed that the demand for tickets at COTA is very high. COTA President Bobby Epstein also reports that a new grandstand is under construction. Speaking to Motorsport.com about the growing interest in the States, he said: “If everything isn’t sold out at this point, it’s almost sold out. It was actually within two days of the spring sale. It’s really amazing. The demand in America right now is phenomenal. It’s three races. Easily fills up and could be more.”
