AUSTIN, Texas – Circuit of the Americas was caught off guard on Monday morning as they learned via a tweet that the FIA WEC Championship was racing at their circuit this weekend.  “Yeah, I mean we didn’t realize it was this weekend to be honest,” said track chairmain Bobby Epstein, “We were thinking about Formula 1 and even the World Challenge race coming up in March and completely forgot about WEC.  I guess all the hoopla with LMDh made us forget they are still racing in their current state.” 

COTA confirmed they think tickets can be purchased but if fans show up to the gate with any old race ticket to the track, they’ll just let them in.
