Pre-race report

Circuit of the Americas is an awesome track and Turn 1 is going to become an iconic corner in our championship. Overall, the layout is really enjoyable and after so much hype i'm excited to finally get to race in Austin and show the locals what we have to offer.

Post-race report

20 May 2013

Frustrating weekend in texas, we struggled for pace on Saturday, car was 6th fastest on the data, it was a physically challenging race, the track is hard work behind the wheel and the temperature and back to back races tested everyones fitness. Made some gains qualifying 4th on Sunday, i had a ripper start and made some moves early to get in to the lead only to have a cross threaded wheel nut put me back to 7th. Finished 6th in the final race. Enjoyed texas and look forward to coming back.
