2016 LONE STAR LE MANS – SEPTEMBER 15 – 17, 2016

Lone Star Le Mans, COTA’s twist on the world’s greatest endurance race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, will take place once again at COTA in Austin, Texas, from Thursday, September 15 to Saturday, September 17. The three-day event will culminate with almost nine hours of racing and entertainment, including its only night race to finish under the stars, topped off with a dazzling fireworks show presented by Texas Lottery.

The event offers fans the opportunity to experience two premier sports car series for the only joint event on each of their schedules: the global FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) and the North American-based IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Circuit of The Americas’ 3.4-mile racetrack will be humming the entire weekend with cars from top manufacturers such as Audi, Toyota, Porsche, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Chevrolet, and more. Also on track in both feature events will be the new Ford GTs, celebrating the brand’s return to top international sportscar racing.

A full festival environment will complement the weekend’s racing with Austin’s famous food trucks, entertainment for the whole family, live music, and a fireworks display during WEC’s 6-hour race. Additionally, IMSA’s Porsche GT3 Cup, Lamborghini Super Trofeo, and Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge will take place that weekend for race fans to enjoy.
