Default IMSA Sportscar races at Circuit of the Americas - Austin TX May 5/6 2017

IMSA Sportscar races at Circuit of the Americas - Corvette Corral tickets on sale

FYI - Circuit of the Americas began selling admission and Corvette Corral tickets to the IMSA Sportscar race on May 5th & 6th. I got my tickets already!

N.B. Its not the Lone Star Le Mans anymore as the WEC and IMSA have decided to part ways this year and have separate dates for their events. WEC is coming in September as per previous years.

Check out the link below.

No, its here.. inside the circuit fence line. Kind of handy because you can get to your car without going through the public exits / entrances.

Yeah its easy to get to. COTA opens the gate right on the right hand side of the green box in the picture, so you can get in from lot B. The parking area is mostly pavement with some dirt-ish spots on the side closer to the track.

I'm super *nal about my car and I didn't have any issue parking it there last year. Way better than lot T the year before.

Does anyone have a Friday corral pass that they're not using?

I'm with you. I'd rather not off-road if I don't have to. I think lot H may be an option as well (fingers crossed). It is a paved lot located on the back straight between turns 11 and 12 (next to track-side RV spots).
