The Final Lone Star Le Mans Went Out With A Hell Of A Ride

With the recent massive changes for the World Endurance Championship, there will only be one stop in America for us to enjoy next year, and that will be at Sebring. Austin’s Circuit of The Americas has hosted WEC each of the past five years, and I am probably not the only person who is sad to see if go.

Each year, the heat and humidity of Austin beats upon fans and teams with no mercy, as a test of wits and stamina. The action on track kicked up the normally blazing conditions even more.

We hope to have you back in Texas sooner than later, WEC. In the meantime, gaze upon a few wallpaper-worthy shots from my coverage at COTA.
