2015 Lone Star Le Mans Race, Fan Events, & Contests
Lone Star Le Mans is less than two weeks away, and the Austin Race Events calendar is filling up! With five (yes, five!) race series competing at the Circuit of the Americas, the track will have nearly constant action for fans through September 17-19.
Aside from the World Endurance Championship (WEC), there will be support races from Porsche GT3 Cup, Lamborghini Super Trofeo, Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge, and TUDOR United SportsCar. All in all, there will be nearly ten hours of total race time, plus practice, qualifying, and warm-up sessions at the track. See the Austin Race Events Calendar for the full lineup, and log in with your Facebook account to create and save your own personal race schedule.
Any good race weekend has events set aside for fans to get up close to teams and drivers. One of our favorites is a contest hosted by Speed City Broadcast, where you can enter to win an experience of being a pit crew member for a team during race weekend. That’s incredible access to a team, the inner workings of their garage, their cars, and best of all – everyone in the stands is looking at YOU. Enter the WEC Pit Crew Contest and see participating teams at SpeedCityPodcast.com.
Another great event is one away from the Circuit – a karting benefit event at K1 Speed. The bonus here is that you can race against the pros the day after Lone Star Le Mans – drivers like Patrick Long, Ryan Eversley, Spencer Pumpelly, Andy Lally, Seth Thomas, Paul Holton, Pierre Kleinubing, and Jason Hart.
