Default Lone Star Le Mans Corvette Corral tickets on sale - Sept 16 & 17 Austin, TX

Circuit of the Americas has started selling tickets to the Corvette Corral at the Lone Star Le Mans race on September 16 & 17.

I just bought mine this week, hope to see some of you out there! It was a good time last year with a speech and Q&A with Doug Fehan and other folks from the GM Corvette team, as well as a meet & greet with the drivers. Not to mention the parade lap, see pic below

What exactly do you get for $140?

1 lap around COTA in your vette and a weekend pass?

Here is a quick video clip. You can get on it a little bit.. but still cool if you've never driven the track.

I'm going. Corral will be inside the fence, right outside Turn 19 this year. It'll be my first IMSA race, so needless to say, I'm looking forward to it! Longest road trip in my vette so far.

crap, forgot to get mine and now the Corvette corral is sold out.

If anyone is not able to go let me know. I may just buy the "General" section so I can at least get on the track.

Do they take each car group together? Different groups on different days?

Ask for Jade Reider, she is by far my favorite person to interact with at CoTA for tickets and options. She might be able to help and/or guide you on the available options.
