Pirelli World Challenge Rounds 1 & 2: COTA

The first two races of the Pirelli World Challenge season are finally almost here, March 6-8 at Circuit of the Americas!

The series was incredible last year with the introduction of the GT3 machinery, and this year looks like it could be even better.

COTA will mark the debut of Cadillac's new GT3 car, it will be the first race of KPax and Flying Lizard's alliance to run the McLaren 650s and Dyson Racing will be embarking upon their first full season of running the Bentleys.


As it's still a bit early, some of the information, like Weather and the Entry List aren't complete yet, but here are some links anyway.

Really looking forward to this event. So many exciting new cars and teams this season, it will be incredibly difficult to predict the winners.

Agreed! I think there's going to be a lot of race win contenders, although the most difficult session to guess could be qualifying for the first race!

The KPax/Flying Lizard lineup looks pretty quick, wouldn't be surprised to see one of the two McLarens starting first.

Sounds like Nissan's GT3 Godzilla will be making it's World Challenge debut at COTA as well! Davidson & Heitkotter for an Always Evolving with AIM Autosport 2 car effort.

Edit: Posted in the series thread, from Sportscar 365, numbers will be #05 and #33.

Not a fan of the circuit. I think I saw the race from 2013 (geez, i had to look it up as i thought it was last year), and only liked the cars. I am really thrilled about the series' direction and looking forward to the event. I may even get to watch some live, at least I would like too. Think everything i watched last year was delayed

Ya, the COTA short track sucks.

Full GT3 spec on the big track should be pretty good... the cars with a lot of top end speed will be able to make passes on the 2 long straights (Bentley, Mercedes, Nissan, McLaren... and probably Cadillac) and everyone else should be able to throw it down on the rest of the track. Really a toss up for who will have the advantage.... I'd imagine the strongest drivers will be at the front.

Good insight, mike. What COTA has going for it is it's the first circuit of the new year for this group. I can watch just about anything through rose tinted glasses at this point in the season.

The TC classes were pretty entertaining 2 years ago when they ran the short course I've heard. As long as the pack(s) can stay together/relatively close, they should be allright on the long course as well since they'll have close to 50 cars on track at once. GT/GT-A/GT Cup should be hoot!
