Austin's Luxury Premier Hotel Prepares for ARX and WRX

The Fairmont Austin, situated in the vibrant Central Business District of Texas’ capital city is the hotel partner to the DirtFish ARX (Americas Rallycross) of COTA next week (July 14) – the first ever rallycross event to be held at America’s Formula 1 circuit, and for the USA’s round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship in September.

The 37-story luxury hotel features 1,048 guest rooms and suites with picturesque vistas of Lady Bird Lake and a dramatic cityscape. “Fairmont Austin works very closely with Circuit of The Americas on a number of events, so we are of course thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with another top-tier motorsports event to take place at COTA,” said Fairmont Austin Director of Sales & Marketing, Michael McMahon. “With rallycross growing so quickly in popularity in the US, it is a great time to create this relationship as the sport continues to gain attention and viewers in the American market.”

Teams, drivers, organizers and fans will be able to enjoy a unique experience of staying in the heart of Downtown Austin, while being just being 15 miles and 25 minutes away from COTA.

“This is such a unique opportunity to partner with such a prominent and fast-growing brand, as it launches in the Austin market,” continued McMahon, ahead of the second round of Americas Rallycross next weekend. “We are already getting inquiries and attention surrounding our participating in rallycross and are ecstatic to welcome these visitors to Fairmont Austin. As COTA and motorsports are skyrocketing in popularity in the local market, this is such an incredible opportunity to host local Texans, and national/international visitors alike.”

Fairmont Austin residents can enjoy an amazing seventh floor pool deck, a luxurious and restful spa with sweeping views of downtown through the floor-to-ceiling windows and Fairmont Gold VIP amenities.

Heading into the second round of ARX, Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross’ Tanner Foust currently leads the standings ahead of team mate Scott Speed.
