[X-posted from automotive thread]

I'm planning on hitting the WEC event in Austin in September. I've never been to the Circuit of the Americas, so I'm looking for photographer related info. I'll just be a spectator. I'm still recovering from a back fracture three years ago and my ability to walk long distances is somewhat limited if I'm carrying a lot of equipment, so any suggestions would be appreciated.

From what I can tell searching the net and talking to some people who have been there, COTA sucks for photos if you don't have credentials.

I was there for MotoGp....like Henry stated, sucks to shoot without credentials. You can go up in the tower to get the shot overhead. Just go and enjoy the event. Take one camera, lens.... its a tough walking track with a lot of gear.

It is indeed pretty awful for non-credentials, but there are some opportunities.

If your walking is limited. I suggest photographing turns 2 - 9. I have parked at the lot behind turn 1. The walk to turns 2-9 would not be to bad although you need to walk up the hill to turn 1. Maybe you could get someone to give you a ride in a cart.

Have fun and good luck.
