The WEC teams descend on COTA!
The FIA World Endurance Championship has returned to the Circuit of The Americas (CoTA) for the first time since 2017 as the teams and drivers prepare for this weekend’s Lone Star Le Mans.
A total of 30 teams will compete at the Texan circuit including the highest number of LMP2 entries this season with the addition of US-based team DragonSpeed. Corvette Racing’s entry also bolsters the highly-competitive LMGTE Pro class as Chevrolet joins manufacturers Aston Martin, Ferrari and Porsche for both COTA and the upcoming SuperSebring weekend.
Five home drivers will also join the Lone Star Le Mans line-up including Rebellion Racing’s Gustavo Menezes, DragonSpeed’s Colin Braun, High Class Racing’s Mark Patterson plus Texan-born Ben Keating (Team Project 1) and Austin-resident Bret Curtis (Dempsey-Proton Racing).
The track action will get underway tomorrow (Saturday) at 08h00 with the first free practice session, while Sunday’s 6-hour race will commence at 12h00 local time. It will be the first time ever that the WEC has been condensed into a two-day race weekend.
Tickets for the Lone Star Le Mans are still available HERE.
