Oh my goodness ladies and gentleman, we are only four weeks away from the inaugural Lone Star Le Mans at Circuit of The Americas™ in Austin, Texas! We are more excited than a law student who just passed his or her LSAT, more excited than a six year old who got a power wheel under the tree on Christmas morning.
Considering this is a highly anticipated, inaugural event, you can imagine all the weekend festivities that will be taking place, can’t you? You may think you have an idea about what all is included during the Sep. 20, 2014 weekend, but I am here to tell you what is going to be the best-of-the-best and what YOU can look forward to experiencing.
It’s a Double-Header
Let’s start off with a bang! Where else can you attend an inaugural event that has two races back-to-back, under the lights, racing into the night? Lone Star Le Mans will feature one of the largest collections of world-class, professional sports car teams and drivers scheduled to race in North America.
This elite new series will include up to 180 unique sports cars with famous drivers like TV star Patrick Dempsey and former Formula 1™ driver Mark Webber! Also, the series will include different varieties of sports cars from the international endurance racing series, which is similar to the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans race in France.
A Texas-sized Celebration
Austin is known as The Live Music Capital of the World®. The city’s pride is the local music community, from the local bands, to major festivals like SXSW, Fun Fun Fun Fest and the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
With that being said, the Lone Star Le Mans weekend is going to be filled with Austin’s famous food trucks, a tremendous firework display, driver autograph sessions, a musical performance by Blue Oyster Cult, interactive racing games, and much, much more!
Pit Lane Tours
This isn’t your average tour of any ole pit lane; this is the tour of tours, folks! Spectators will have unimaginable access as both United SportCar Championship and World Endurance Championship teams open up their garages and invite Y. O. U. to come on in. Oh, and did we mention that the drivers will be there too? –You betcha!
I’d like to say it can’t get any better, but I’d be lying! Futuristic prototypes to production-based Grand Touring vehicles will be on display from the world’s most recognized and astonishing automakers, including Aston Martin, Ferrari, Audi, BMW, Porsche, Corvette, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, and Toyota.
With your Official Ticket Package through COTA Experiences you can meet racing legend Townsend Bell! Hear about how he got into auto racing, his experiences and accomplishments.
Fun fact: Townsend Bell is also a NBC Sports' Indycar broadcaster!
