Next year, the V8 Supercar Series will be heading to America for the first time ever in its storied history. The event will take place from May 17th to the 19th next year at Circuit of the Americas’ new Texas circuit.
The V8 Supercars race will be on the same weekend as the NASCAR All-Star event in Charlotte and falls one week before the Indianapolis 500. Tickets for the Austin, Texas event will go on sale on October 16th and will range in price from $83 to $275.
“The Austin circuit is coming together beautifully and will offer our teams and drivers fabulous facilities from which to compete – and one of the most challenging road courses ever designed,” said V8 Supercars CEO David Malone. “We’re delighted to showcase Australia’s premier motorsport category at first-class venue and in a national marketplace with a healthy appetite for top-notch auto racing and family friendly entertainment.”
The rest of the 2013 V8 Supercar Series schedule will be revealed within the next two weeks.
