Circuit of the Americas MotoGP Camping!

We’re a month away from the RedBull Circuit of the Americas MotoGP 2014 event, and we’ve still got plenty of room for camping and parking! Last year we had a blast with all the folks that came out, and look forward to some return customers and some new folks! We made some slight adjustments to the pricing from last year, now it’s $25/night per person. We’ve also got group rates available, so if you’ve got a whole mess of friends coming out, shoot us a message for pricing!

In addition to breakfast, coffee, 2 awesome outdoor showers and facilities, we’re offering airport and beer store shuttles during the event this year! We ask that you give us a heads up so we can schedule picking you up. No hidden fees like other private Circuit of the Americas MotoGP campgrounds, and hey, we’re enthusiasts, not extortionists! Why not support fellow enthusiasts instead of lining the pockets of some dude with a downtown office? Seems like a no-brainer!

We’re planning on having more live music again, too, so it should be an all-around fun time! Even if you just come to park for the weekend we’ll have some entertainment to help pass the time while traffic clears out. We’ve moved a bunch of stuff around at the shop so there’s more parking available up front, and we’ll have a 6+ passenger golfkart to shuttle onsite and make beer/ice runs with. Less hiking equals more partying, right?? We hope so!

We look forward to seeing you this year, feel free to message with any questions you may have!

COTA Camping & Parking for MotoGP/X-Games!

Howdy ya’ll, we’re gearing up for MotoGP, Red Fest and the X-Games in 2014! We’ll have our space available to our friends (new & old) for these two events, as well as any others! We’ve changed the Circuit of the Americas camping price structure a little bit, but it will have zero effect on most folks… those that it will effect are encouraged to email me and arrange a group rate! For those just here, we used to charge $50/night for a carload of campers. Now it’s $25/night per person. Sucks for the big groups (which were very few), a better deal for those that come in solo, and no effect to most of our campers which are pairs or couples! Again, CONTACT US for group rates and discounts for COTA camping, it’s super easy! Parking will continue to be $20/day for large events or $50 for a 3-Day pass, but we’re adding an Airport shuttle, an on-site/beer store shuttle, and if COTA will allow it, a shuttle to the track.

More COTA CampingĀ and Parking Changes/Updates:

  • AIRPORT SHUTTLE, subject to availability. If you’re booking camping with us, or arriving and camping with us, please LET US KNOW BEFOREHAND.
  • We can accept credit cards on-site or over the phone! For those that hate PayPal. We also accept checks mailed in, as well as cash.
  • For Formula 1 USGP, MotoGP and X-Games, we will have an on-site shuttle. This will be a 6-8 person golf cart which will shuttle you from the camping area in back up to the front gate. At night, this will also serve as a beer store/ice/supply shuttle to the nearby stores. Between the airport shuttle and the on-site shuttle, no need for a rental car!
  • MORE MUSIC! Yes, that’s right, we’ll have more music for events in 2014! No need to rush to the car and sit in traffic, we’ll have entertainment post-race!
  • Better parking! We just started doing this and we learn more every time! 2014 will see more spots up front as well as stripes for all events!
  • There’s some more admin/back end changes to streamline everything and make the weekend run smoother… but if you patronized us in 2013 and have any suggestions, please feel free to contact us!

Holy Ka-Kow Rocking out, 2013 USGP

Here’s some alternate routes to get to/from our spot on race day; the Moore Road route from the toll road avoids the huge backup at the FM812 exit on 130. The Peterson Road route will get you around the road blocks/traffic to get to the roll road and head North/South on 130:

X Games Camping & Parking!

X Games CampingESPN and COTA announced this week that Austin will be hosting the X Games in 2014, which is rad! So if you’re looking for an affordable place for X Games Camping or Parking, you’ve found the right place! We’re local racers, enthusiasts and supporters — when Chris isn’t racing cars he’s defying death on a brakeless fixed gear bicycle around Austin! So come on out, we’ll have some evening entertainment and we’re pretty much the most affordably priced place to park or camp within walking distance of COTA!

For the list of amenities, details, and how to book X Games Camping, head over to our COTA Camping page. For X Games parking, head to our COTA Parking page for a 3-Day pass, or a single day pass!

Obviously we’re big motorsports enthusiasts, and if you are too then come camp at the site of the first RallyCrosses in Central Texas! Heck, we love RallyCross so much we were in LA for the first RallyCross X Games competition back in 2007! A lot has changed with that event since then but it should be pretty awesome here at what is basically the fanciest racetrack in the country! We look forward to seeing all of ya’ll out here next year!
