The organisers of the United States Grand Prix have announced that tickets will go on sale on June 10.

The new Circuit of the Americas remains under construction ahead of the November 18 race date, but the circuit has announced competitive pricing for temporary grandstands and general admission tickets. Fans will be able to purchase general admission for $159 while the temporary stand prices range from $269 to $499. The grandstands are situated at turns 2, 3, 4, 5, 11 and 12, with turn 11 seeing the cheapest prices.

In comparison with an established race, the British Grand Prix prices general admission at £155 ($240), while the grandstand tickets range from £235 ($363) to £370 ($572). Sales at Silverstone have been strong, with the circuit announcing that it is on course for a sell-out with less than 5,000 tickets remaining.
