Ford Performance Racing fans can now begin arranging their travel plans for next year’s race in Austin, Texas after V8 Supercars announced the first ever event in the United States will take place on 17-19 May, 2013.
Mark Winterbottom was the first V8 Supercars driver to sample the track when he visited the circuit in June and is excited by the news.
"It is probably as close to the 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."
