Default Watch Austin, TX's new F1/MotoGP track built in time lapse

Work is progressing rapidly on the Circuit of the Americas or, the Austin, Texas track that will be hosting F1 in 2012, and MotoGP races beginning in 2013. Ground was only broken early this year, but already drainage, excavation and foundation work has been largely completed. Building the 3.4-mile, 20-corner track is a gargantuan undertaking, something underscored the the ant-like progress made in these videos.

I can already imagine Ducati Island inside Turns 12, 13, and 14 for MotoGP.
