Video: A Lap of The Circuit of Americas


The lights at Circuit of the Americas in Austin will glow green for the start of the F1 United States Grand Prix on Sunday, marking the first running of a race at the track.  The 3.43 mile course features 15 corners with three straightaway sections and an elevation change coming into turn 1 of 138 feet.  Since there isn’t any rolling footage of actual racing on the track yet, Pirelli has created this 3D animation of a lap around the track.

We sincerely hope that this event is a huge success for the city of Austin and the Circuit of Americas both.  While we won’t be at the race this year, we will be at the Grand-Am, V8 Supercar, WEC and American Le Mans Series races there next year and we simply can’t wait.
