2013 International Sportscar Weekend PreviewPosted: September 19, 2013
Tomorrow is the opening day for the ALMS/WEC International Sportscar Weekend at The Circuit of the Americas in Austin. What is quickly becoming my home track, the American Le Mans Series will race for 2 hours and 45 minutes on Saturday and we’ll have a 6 hour race on Sunday for the World Endurance Championship.
Between the two series, I’ve seen most of these cars at Le Mans.
I was supposed to drive down to Austin and stay with my sister and her family tonight and spend most of tomorrow at the track, but God had other plans for me today. So, I’ll get up early, head to Competitive Camera where I’ll pick up a new lens for the weekend and, weather permitting, I’ll hit the track.
Fox Sports 1 – originally SpeedTV – was set to broadcast Sunday’s WEC race, they’ve since cancelled those plans. ESPN2, however, will broadcast Saturday’s ALMS race on Sunday. Set your DVR’s.
Until then, here’s what you can expect from this weekend:
