Pirelli World Challenge remains the feature race at COTA while Intercontinental GT Challenge pulls out

Two things are inevitable in Motorsport: excitement and disappointment. Unfortunately after the excitement of finding out that the SRO would debut at the Circuit of the Americas this year with the Six hours of the Americas, disappointment followed learning the news that their appearance was cancelled.

Officially the SRO says the event has been postponed until October of 2017 but with the lack of information made available leading up to the March 2016 event, I highly doubt there will be anything to look forward to two Octobers from now.

I am disappointed, especially after booking my flights specifically to see the Intercontinental GT Challenge on American soil after experiencing it in Malaysia for the Sepang 12h and Australia for the Bathurst 12h. But the good news the SCCA-PRO: Pirelli World Challenge is a decent show to experience. I have had the pleasure of working a race with PWC at COTA during the Australian V8 Supercars visits to America a few years back, and I’m looking forward to seeing PWC succeed on its own.

Shame SRO cancelled though ­čÖü
