Spent the weekend at Circuit of the Americas, where two major sports car races were being conducted in one day. The first was the IMSA/TUDOR United Sports Car Championship series race, which took place in the morning; it was a 2 hour and 40 minute race and our team (Risi Competizione) took a very respectable 2nd place (the third of the season), after difficult practice and qualifying sessions. The second race was the World Endurance Championship 6 Hour event, which started in sunlight at 5:00PM and finished at 11:00PM. That event brought all the big international factory endurance racing teams to Austin, Texas.
It was quite a race and Giles Richard, a writer for The Guardian, a newspaper in the UK, did a very nice piece on it. There will be more on the race weekend later, but for now…please click to Gile’s piece on the WEC.
