Good news out of Austin!
With construction at full speed, the Circuit of the Americas is set for a mid-August completion date. To state the obvious, this is FAR ahead of the mid-November race date. To also state the obvious, how many new tracks lately have pulled this one off?
Work is underway on the main grandstand, as well as on buildings. Mid-August is when the track itself should be completed, leaving plenty of time for an inspection and fixing anything that may be wrong.
The COTA website has been down for a couple of days now while undergoing a makeover.
Meanwhile, the New Jersey race has named Tom Cotter as the Grand Prix of America’s president. Cotter previously owned a sports marketing group. Dennis Robinson, a former president of the New Jersey Sports and Expositions group, will be the race’s chief operating officer.
