American LeMans / World Endurance Challenge

Post by austin flagger » Tue Jul 16, 2013 12:02 am

Looking for more flagging marshals to join us at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX for the American LeMans Series / World Endurance Challenge event Sept 20-22. We still have quite a few spots to fill and would welcome moderate to very race experienced marshals. These cars are just plain awesome, and it's your only chance this year to see the P1 prototype battle of Audi vs Toyota.

It's a 3 day commitment for Fri-Sun, but we're also looking for volunteers for Thurs the 19th (which is optional). Free camping is available for volunteers. Send your emails to apply to lonestarflagchief@aol.com.

There are 2 great support series races, the Porsche GT3 Cup and IMSA Prototype Lites. Qualifying for these 2 groups starts Thurs, and then races Fri, Sat, and Sun (which is the 6 hr WEC enduro).

Look forward to hearing from you.

Wow, what an event. Lots and lots of sports cars and prototypes. Had some hard rain on the Friday, definite test of the teams and track and marshals. Weather tempered out to clear skies the next 2 days and decent temps, so really was kind of nice overall. Loved the Audi vs Toyota LMP1 Hybrids in WEC. The DeltaWing made it's couple debut, it was pretty fast, kept up with the LMP2 cars decently. Great GT battles. We had well over 80 marshals for this one, SowDiv was out in force helping with the 27 stations, plus Pit In/Out, and Start. Thanks everyone.
