The place: Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas.

The actor: Nicholas Hoult, who can be seen in the upcoming film “Mad Max: Fury Road,” which is set to be released in May.

The verdict: “It’s definitely one of the best tracks in the world. It’s a real pleasure and an honor to have a chance to go around it.”

Actor Nicholas Hoult paid a visit to Circuit of The Americas on Sunday, taking time out from South by Southwest to ride a few fast laps around the 3.4-mile circuit that will host MotoGP next month.

Hoult came to the Circuit along with the RideSmart Motorcycle School, a Texas-based track-day school that provides instructional assistance for a wide variety of motorcycle skill levels.

The 25-year-old British actor has starred in films such as “X-Men: First Class,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “Warm Bodies” and “About A Boy.”
