You can now register to pick your grandstand seats for the 2012 United States Grand Prix

The Circuit of the Americas has officially launched its ticket sales program for November’s inaugural United States Grand Prix at its Texas-based circuit, which is set to finish construction work in August.

From today, fans will be able to register for ‘personal seat licenses’ through its official website, which will give them first call on premium grandstand seating and suite access for events at the Hermann Tilke-designed circuit.

The initiative is in response to overwhelming interest from fans around the world, said the track’s chief marketing and sales officer, Geoff Moore.

“In order to effectively manage the demand, we have created a two-stage ticketing process to help fans better understand the opportunities available,” he is quoted as saying.

“We want every fan to get the ticket that is right and affordable for them. In this first stage, we are showing off the incredible entertainment experience our main grandstand offers.”

The circuit’s website has also released a selection of new artist’s impression images of how the venue will look in time for its mid-November race (click for larger images).

That it is set to finish construction work three months ahead of schedule is particularly impressive when one considers the major delays the venue faced when it was embroiled in a dispute with the race’s promoters and Formula One Management, which threatened to completely derail the event.
