...and it also looks like Ratel is taking the Intercontinental GT Challenge Event (originally scheduled here at COTA in March 2016) to Laguna Seca in 2017. Bummer.

OBTW, those PWC boys might be in for a surprise on Labor Day weekend. It's a helluva lot hotter here that weekend than it is at the beginning of March (when it can actually be pretty chilly). It's typically at or near 100 degrees, and the hottest day I've ever experienced in Austin, 112 degrees, was in Labor Day a few years ago. COTA's not a place any sane person wants to spend long stretches at in that kind of heat. The hottest race I can remember out there was V8SC, when it was in the low 90s...and it was absolutely brutal.

My 11 year-old is going to go through the roof when I tell him about Bruno Mars. :lol:
He is not much into motorsport, I don't push it on him (my 7 year-old is another story), but I think as soon as I mention this he's going to beg to go.
