ALMS and WEC – Austin 2013

A little preview and some thoughts from last weekend’s festivities in Austin. Not even a little (ok, a lot) rain could dampen the good times.

After going to F1 last year (and don’t get me wrong, everyone needs to see them run at least once), I would highly recommend the sports car weekend next year to anyone looking to visit Austin’s Circuit of the Americas. Multiple classes battle it out in each race, and fans are treated to a whopping 8 hours and 45 minutes of top-level racing over two days, along with a host of support series in-between.

All this coupled with reasonable reasonable hotel prices, access to the paddock, pit walks, and a free and easy mindset all around the track make for a fantastic three days.

Just be warned: going back to work on Monday might be a little tougher than usual.

More pics from around the track and paddock will be up soon.
