YOUNG BUT THRILLING RACING HISTORY - COTA (20.10.2016)
The Circuit of the Americas (COTA) near Austin, Texas, is one of the projects that has also been fully designed and implemented by Tilke.

Peter Trzewik, a partner in Gain, said initially they thought they would just lay out a circuit including replicas of some of their favourite corners from race tracks they had driven, and that would be that.
Then they thought — there are companies that design race tracks; why not inquire to see what professional help might offer?
So, they sent out requests to several track designers.
Initially, they figured there was no point in contacting Hermann Tilke. After all, they design most of the new Formula One race tracks; why would they be interested in a little project like this?
But, for the price of a postage stamp ...
