  • Austin, TX Circuit of the Americas


Registration is closed

On Sunday, May 10 beginning at 12:00 noon, Circuit of The Americas is inviting fans to take a drive on its world-famous 3.4-mile track to collect donations for Central Texas Food Bank and host a parade of unity, hope, and fun! Join your friends and neighbors safely from inside your vehicle at 20 MPH as you ascend the iconic “Turn 1” hill, weave through the challenging “esses” at Turns 3 and 4, and cruise down the same back stretch as the greatest drivers in Formula 1 have done.

Due to the current climate, donations online are recommended and $1 can produce up to four meals!  Click here to donate now.

Cadillac V-Club members who would like to cruise out to the venue together should meet at the Barton Creek Mall. Use the Capital of Texas Hwy Loop 360 to Walsh-Tarletan entrance, take first right then left into main parking lot.  Chuck McCormick will be leading the cruise in his Glacier White CTS-V.  Please arrive by 11am sharp or optionally feel free to connect with Chuck at COTA.

Food Drive FAQs

How can I donate?

Due to the current climate, donations online via credit card are recommended and $1 can produce up to four meals! If you choose to donate cash or non-perishable items, “touchless” locations will be available for self-drop-off in the COTA garages. Donations are recommended, but not required to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime experience. 

What is a parade lap?

You'll be able to take your car on America's only Formula 1 track! Cars should not exceed 20 MPH while on the track. You are welcome to decorate your car in support of all the frontline workers. Flags and window messages are encouraged. 

How do I get on the track?

Enter off of FM-812 and turn onto COTA Blvd. Follow the signs and take a right into LOT A. From there, you will be directed to the Paddock where you can drive through a garage to drop off your donation and take a left to enter pit lane and head onto the track. 

Can I get out and explore?

No. Please stay in your car at all times. Safe distancing restrooms will be available. All other areas of COTA will remain closed.
