Finding out that the future of the United States Grand Prix is in jeopardy due to monetary concerns—well, it’s really a shame. I mean, when else do we get to welcome foreign driving legends like Sebastian Vettel to this land? Not often.
While this year’s rain-soaked United States Grand Prix was indeed a thrilling race, it was not a good weekend for the event itself or its venue, Austin, Texas’ Circuit of the Americas. Horrendous weather meant F1 in Austin was “financially devastating” for COTA. Now the track has more bad news: Texas is reportedly…
After the most exciting thing we saw on track at Circuit of the Americas yesterday was a couple of school buses due to rain, Formula One finally got most of a qualifying session in and Mercedes is on top with Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton.
The United States Grand Prix is wet. And windy. Like, soak-through-my-clothing wet and turn-my-umbrella-inside-out windy.
Formula One isn’t scared of a little rain, but a lot of rain — well, that’s a different story.

This man — Fan Man — has the most important job in racing right now. It’s hot and humid as balls outside at this test day, and all I’m doing is walking around grabbing some photos. Inside a car probably feels like a sauna when the car is off.
Today’s wallpaper comes courtesy of our very own Stef Schrader, who probably took this photo herself but there’s a 10% chance it was actually Puff:
At this weekend’s MotoGP Grand Prix of the Americas, there was Marc Marquez, and then there was everybody else.
If there's any one racing vehicle with a power-to-weight ratio that would make Colin Chapman fanboys weep, it's a motorcycle. Patrick George and I will be will be here at Circuit of the Americas all weekend, watching motorcyclists battle it out at face-melting speeds.
Usually loose livestock is more of a problem in Texas, but out at Circuit of the Americas they're dealing with an animal nuisance of the smaller, cuter variety.
Years ago, when Tavo Hellmund first got the fairly insane idea to bring Formula One racing to Austin, Texas, he called his buddy Kevin Schwantz to ask what would make the track great for the world championship of motorcycle racing as well.
What insights can you glean about a new car from just two Circuit of the Americas laps when you’re in the passenger’s seat? Not as many as you’d like, especially when it’s a car as important as the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V. I’d prefer to know everything about that car but we’re not there yet. What I can tell you is that…
Pirelli World Challenge features one of the most diverse fields of sportscars in America. The Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy (read: all wonderful Porsche Cup cars) is running this weekend, too.
