Ok, so it is practice day for the Six Hours of Circuit of Americas 2015, forming the headline event in this years Lone Star Le Mans, as a round of the World Endurance Championship.
Also part of Lone star Le Mans is the Tudor United Sportscar Championship, Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge, Lamborghini Super Trofeo and IMSA GT3 Cup.
Now last years race day was incredibly wet, and COTA effectively became a large lake as many drivers found out rather quickly, so hopefully the weather conditions are far better for this years edition.
The race is Saturday, as part of the format for the event that came into effect last year, whereby you have the IMSA TUSCC race in the afternoon, followed by the Six Hours going into the night-time hours at Circuit of the Americas.
I was going to write a full preview of all the teams and drivers in both IMSA TUSCC and the World Endurance Championship but a change of plan has occurred, so instead of talking about things you probably already know about or generally aren’t interested in knowing about.
I’m going to let you folks ask the questions to me, on what you want to know, and hopefully I can provide an answer to some of them at least. Whether you are going to Austin for Sportscar racing for the first time and just want a quick explanation of the class structure and an introduction to the sport of endurance racing, or you have followed Sportscar racing a while and just want to discuss or debate something, the questions are up to you!
It’s the US round of the championship so it makes sense to try this now.
