In late September ALMS will be at COTA in Austin for a 2 hour 45 min. race and should include the Viper team. They let you get right up to the garages/pit area too the day before and the day of the race. Autograph session too prior to the race. Hoping the Houston club and other Texas clubs will attend and even caravan. My recommendation for seating is in the main grandstand across from the pits but up high to avoid looking thru the catch fence. Prices are reasonable and the better bars and eats are near the main grandstand too. Your ticket also allows you to venture around the track grounds for awesome views of the turns. Lots of walking but there is a free continuos van service from the dusty parking lots. COTA will release tickets for sale later this year. It does not sell out like F1, much cheaper, and a lot less crowded based on a recent Grand Am race we attended. Many hotels nearby too but book early. See you there.
