The draft layout for the upcoming F1 track in Austin, Texas has been revealed. It would appear that Tavo Hellmund was right about the circuit paying tribute to some of the world's best ractracks. Looking at the layout, which runs anti-clockwise, one can see corners resembling the Becketts complex at Silverstone and Turn 8 at Istanbul. Hellmund says the cars will reach 200mph on the back straight, while the total elevation change is 133 feet (~40m). The track will be designed by Hermann Tilke's company, as has been the case with all new F1 track designs or modifications since 1997 (with the exception of the Arena Section at Silverstone, which was designed by track-designing firm Populous). Construction is planned to begin in December and the track is set to host the Formula One United States Grand Prix in 2012.
