    A Driver’s PerspectiveFord Performance Racing driver Mark Winterbottom sampled the Circuit of The Americas during its construction in June this year.

    “This is probably as close to Bathurst as any track I’ve seen, purely because of the angulation. You’ve got blind corners, you’ve got the length, you’ve got the speed, and I think this is going to build up to be a historic track for America as well,” Winterbottom said.

    “The circuit’s topography, including the dramatic changes in elevation, will make for some really fun racing and a great show for fans.”
