Brumos Racing are preparing for their first assault of the new Circuit of the Americas (COTA) as the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series makes its way to the Texan circuit.
Neither of the Floridian team’s two drivers, Andrew Davis and Leh Keen have driven the state-of-the-art venue, however Keen was at the inaugural Formula 1 event at the circuit, so has some knowledge of the facilities.
“It is, without a doubt, a world class venue and it says a lot for the future of US road racing.” explained Keen. “This race will be one of the definite highlights of our season and I can’t wait to get the famous Brumos #59 out there and see for myself what the track is all about. It will also be great to get back into the groove of the sprint race format. We had a tough Rolex 24 this year, but that was only the first race of the year, so we have the opportunity to really make up a lot of ground with a strong finish here.”
Davis, however, has never been to COTA, but has done his research and believes that a strong balance between the technical sections of the circuit and the fast corners and long straights of the new venue.
“We have really been looking forward to taking the Brumos #59 Porsche to this race. It is a new track for us, but we will have a day of testing to get things sorted out. Brumos is ready to get to Austin, accept those challenges, and showcase what we can do for this new Texas audience. We obviously didn’t get the result we had hoped for at Daytona, so we are ready to make up some lost ground and get the #59 Brumos Porsche back up front where it belongs.”
