Now it can be told…WEC at COTA Notes

Here are some snippets for my trip the WEC event in Austin :

Spoke with Beau Barfield, an interest observer at the ALMS race, re: Muscle Milk coming to Indy cars, “Would love to have them”.   Latest news is that the team remains committed sportscar, but in what form remains to be seen.

Texas “Grid Girl” – love the hats

– Rode in one of the shuttles early on and sat next to Graham Goodwin, from Daily Sportscar.com (excellent site if you have never seen it!). It was his first trip to COTA and relayed that it is much easier to get about than Brazil (where the last round of WEC was).  The crime there is so bad that some unscrupulous types create fake taxis in order to rob unsuspected people.  Unbelievable!

– Talked with the Michelin lead tire rep at the track and asked about their possible involvement in F1.   Their man in Austin replied, “Michelin wants competition and would never be a sole supplier”  (replacing Pirelli).  Not a denial, so it will be interesting to see if they turn up in F1 at some point when Pirelli’s exclusive deal ends).

Yes, I’ve been away for a bit from the site, but managed to get to Austin to Circuit of the America for the WEC and ALMS race weekend.  Attached is a link to my Flickr site with the details.

I will add more notes as time permits.
