Another invitation to return to the Circuit of the Americas this season, this time for the Pirelli World Challenge which plays a support race to the brand new format from the SRO: the Intercontinental GT Challenge.
Sounds familiar? It should be. SRO is going head to head with WEC creating a global endurance series championship including Sepang 12 hour which I just did in Malaysia and Bathurst 12 hour which I’ll be going to Australia for in February.
The COTA event is definitely on my to-do list!
Here’s the invite e-mail from Brent McNaul, Lone Star SCCA flag chief:
