This past weekend the Pirelli World Challenge made its first ever stop at Circuit of the America’s in Austin, Texas. Since the Formula One race last fall, I have been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to drive this incredible circuit and it certainly didn’t disappoint.
Running the short course, the track certainly delivered in terms of its technical and challenging nature. A handling track by design, the circuit offered some great sectors that suited the Optima well and some challenging complexes which tested our tire management skills.
It was a great weekend for Kia Racing. It felt great to be back on the podium and show some strong pace which we can now build on at the upcoming Detroit GP.
