Just got two invites for the most important races of the year (I think) on the American Racing Calendar. I’ll make two posts to share the invites with anyone who could be interested. My advice, do both!
Lone Star Le Mans is one of the coolest events there are on US soil. It is the only appearance FIA WEC makes in the United States and the circuit couldn’t be better: COTA in Austin, Texas
Interested in volunteering?
I say do it!
What is it; Lone Star Le Mans
When is it: September 15-17, 2016
Where is it: Circuit of the Americas, Austin, Texas
Who’s recruiting: Lone Star Region SCCA and COTA itself
Who will be there: Five Race Groups!
- FIA WEC (LMP1, LMP2, GT Pro, GT Pro-Am)
- IMSA WeatherTech Series (DP & LMP2, GTLM, GTD)
- IMSA Continental Tire Series (GS & ST)
- IMSA Lamborghini Super Trofeo
- IMSA Porsche GT3 Cup USA
How to get there? Fly into Austin which may be pricey, I went twice earlier this year and flew through Dallas DFW, Houston is also doable with Intercontinental and Hobby airports, San Antonio is probably closest of the nearby towns.
Where to stay? The cheapest place is at the COTA campground. Right outside the Mustering Marshal tent so you get to sleep in until the morning meeting.
I would highly recommend this event!
I went to COTA twice this year already for PWC and MotoGP but I would go again in the heartbeat if I still can’t find a job by late September… my fingers are crossed that I’ll be working for a living, but if not I’ll find a way to come to this event!
To sign up go to COTA web site, scroll down to Volunteers on the bottom of the page and fill out the application on MotorsportReg where it links to. Or go directly to MotorsportReg and do it there.
