2017 Carrera of the Americas PCA Club Race

Hill Country, Lone Star and Maverick PCA Regions invite you to join us for the 2017 Carrera of the Americas PCA Club Race and Advanced DE March 3-5, 2017.  The race is at the 3.4 mile Circuit of the Americas, one of the most challenging tracks in the U.S. and the only Formula 1 venue in the U.S.  This year’s race will be one of the best ever.  After the track goes cold on Saturday, we’ll celebrate the driver’s participation and hand out awards at Moorespeed located about 10 minutes from the track.  There will be no Test and Tune.  We’ll feature two Sprint races on Saturday and two 60-minute Enduro races on Sunday.

This year’s race is well placed as the second PCA Club Race of the season, one month after Sebring.  And two months before the Lone Star Le Mans IMSA race.  So buy some tires, load up the transporter and come drive one of the best racing circuits in the U.S.  And remind all those IMSA, Conti etc. drivers that this is a great opportunity to drive COTA before their races.

Race Registration opens Monday January 16 at 9:00 PM CST at https://clubregistration.net/events/signUp.cfm/event/7526.  The Club Race Registrar is Wendy Shoffit [email protected]

In addition to the race, we’ll have an advanced solo Driver’s Education limited to two groups of 60 cars each.  The advanced solo DE Registration opens Tuesday, January 17 at 12:00 PM CST at https://clubregistration.net/events/signUp.cfm/event/7026.  The Advanced Solo DE Registrar is Tim Thomas [email protected].  You can find more information about the Advanced Solo DE at http://register.pca.org.

Over 20 of the F1 garages are available for rent at $1,500 per garage for the entire weekend.  This sounds like a lot but each garage holds up to six cars. To make garage reservations and parking as efficient as possible, this year we will pre assign garages prior to the event.  We hope to avoid confusion by doing this and provide those who want to park together an opportunity to do so.  Pre assignment will be on a first come first served basis and will be coordinated by Race Registrar Wendy Shoffit [email protected]
